Here’s one of the last two sent to me by my cousins Adriana and Mike O. – thank you very much! Picanha is considered to be the best cut of meat in Brazil – let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether this contains meat. To prepare, add the noodle block to 450ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A shiny sachet.
Has a smoky scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro, thin sliced beef and crushed red pepper. The noodles came out nice with a decent chew to them. The broth was kind of like a smoky beef – almost like a corned beef too. Not bad. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 7891079011775.
Thank you again to cousins Adriana and Mike O. for sending this one to me! As I’ve said in the past, anything south of the United States has been just near impossible for me to get – until somewhat recently. This one’s from Brazil. As for the translation? Well, Google says frango assado simply means roast chicken – let’s give it a try!

The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a kind of roast chicken flavor to it.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro, lime, baked chicken, crushed red pepper and cream cheese. The noodles had a decent chewiness – pretty standard gauge. The broth was very good – definitely the best roast chicken flavor I’ve had thus far. I really liked it; it was unique and very tasty. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 7891079012581.
This one was sent to me by my cousins Mike and Adriana frequently visit Brazil and brought me some back! Thank you so much! After looking it up, I found that this is chicken and cream cheese flavor. i’m hoping the translation is right; figuring it is – I guess we’ll see! Let’s crack it open and check it out!
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains meat. To prepare, add boiling water to fill line and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are thin and slightly broad. They kind of reminds me of British instant noodles in their chew, but that’s where it ends. The broth is thick and very flavorful – kind of a slightly smoky chicken gravy, augmented with bits of carrot and other vegetables as well as meat. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 7891079012024.
Wow okay so I have been wanting to get my hands on noodles from Brazil for a while now – at least a couple of years. Luckily, my cousins Mike and Adriana frequently visit Brazil and brought me some back! Thank you so much! While these are Cup Noodles, they’ve got some interesting flavor. This one, calabresa (aka linguica) is sausage flavored! Here’s a little about linguica from wikipedia:
Linguiça, like many other sausages, is generally served as part of a heavy meal, typically accompanied by rice, beans, and other pork products. Feijoada, for example, is a traditional Portuguese dish, also common in Brazil andAngola, that incorporates linguiça with beans, ham hocks, and other foods.
In Brazil, one variant is specially popular, the linguiça calabresa or simply calabresa, prepared originally with Calabrese pepper (nowadays with South American pepper) by Italian immigrants and particularly used in pizzas as a spicy sausage. Its popularity compares with pepperoni in the United States. Thus it’s common to differentiate the linguiça calabresa from its counterpart linguiça portuguesa, prepared from the original Portuguese recipe and also served in pizzas as mild sausage, generally with egg slices.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro. The noodles were very crumbly, but lent themselves perfectly for this application. They crumbled, the broth had a smoky bean kind of thing – and the crumbly texture was almost rice-like. It was very reminiscent of red beans and rice with smoky sausage. Fascinating and tasty! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 7891079012758.
Got a package yesterday! I was recently in California and saw my cousin Mike O. I asked him if the next time he visited Brazil if he could possibly look for some noodles I’ve wanted to review. As it turned out, his wife Adriana O. was currently down there and he’d let her know. Well, turns out she found some and he sent them to me once she returned!
Wow – check these out (click to enlarge). I’ve been trying to get some of these for a long time! I did have a dialogue at one point with Nissin Brasil, but I think they weren’t interested in sending samples because they don’t sell their products in the USA. Really looking forward to trying these! Thank you very much!!
