#3350: Nissin Miojo Cremoso Costela Barbecue - Brazil

I really like it when readers send me a ton of varieties from somewhere I’ve never been able to get them before. This is one of those! I know there’s lots of cups and other brands out of Brazil to try as well. Brazilian varieties have very savory flavors, centering mostly on meat. This one’s barbecued ribs flavor! Let’s check it out.

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Unsure whether or not it contains meat – check for yourself. To prepare, cook noodles in 300ml water for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

A dry soup base sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro. Noodles came out well enough. Broth was more of a sauce. The smells and tastes were just plain odd; but maybe I’m just not familiar with Brazilian barbecue flavors. Fascinating but ultimately off-putting more or less to me. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7891079013243.

Brazil certainly has a myriad of flavors and instant noodles reflect those very nicely. This one, garlic chicken, sounds really good! I’d better get some chicken defrosting. Let’s check out these noodles sent by a reader!

#3326: Nissin Miojo Nissin Lamen Hot Sabor Galinha - Brazil

I was told a while back that Brazilians don’t go all in for ultra spicy and that this range does have varieties that are spicier than others, but not super duper spicy. Either way, this sounded like a good one for today, so here we go.

Here’s another one from a reader in Brazil – thank you very much! So from translation, it sounds like this is a cheese sauce noodle. It mentions ‘menos agua’ which means ‘less water,’ probably meaning this will have a thicker broth/sauce. Let’s give it a try!

The seasoning sachet. Note mention f the 300ml water – this is probably to make sure people don’t use the standard which is a larger quantity.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried onionm green onion, and baked chicken. Pretty standard noodle here. The cheese sauce was really quite nice – definitely a comfort food kind of thing. Like mac and cheese done with instant noodles – and it works very well. Don’t believe me? Ask my daughter – she loved it! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7891079013229.

This one comes by way of Daniel from Brazil – thanks again! Well, my friends – pizza. I love reviewing pizza instant noodles. Why? Because it’s awesome, that’s why! I’ve actually tried quite a few – the first was from Pakistan, then India, then Indonesia and I think there are more. Now Brazil enters the hallowed realm of the pizza flavor instant noodle.

A lot of powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, pepperoni, havarti cheese, fried onion and red pepper flakes. The noodles came out nicely – flat and slightly broad. They slurped all but a speck of water during the cooking process. The flavor was a very salty ‘party pizza’ kind of taste to it – onion, bell pepper and tomato flavors bound together. The pizza instant noodle is a fascinating thing and this one is pretty good. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 7891079001509.

Here’s one sent by Daniel in Brazil – thanks again! The characters on the package are from a popular series for children called ‘Monica’s Gang’ in Brazil. This one’s tomato flavor – curious where it’s a fresh tomato, or what I’m guessing – a creamy kind of tomato taste. Let’s find out!

#2966: Nissin Miojo Turma Da Monica Sabor Caldinho De Feijao Suave

Today’s variety comes by way of Daniel from Brazil – thanks again! First, let’s explain what this is exactly. So let’s start with the characters – Wikipedia, if you please –

Monica’s Gang (originally titled Turma da Mônica in Portuguese) or Monica and Friends[1] is a popular Brazilian comic book franchise created by Mauricio de Sousa.

The series was originally based on a newspaper comic strip in which the protagonists were Blu (Bidu) and Franklin (Franjinha), launched by the newspaper Folha da Manhã in 1959.[2] Over the years the series has been gaining a large audience, with new characters constantly being added to the lineup. Jimmy Five (Cebolinha) and Monica (Mônica) were eventually given their own comic books, hence the title “Monica’s Gang.” The characters and comics were eventually adapted into cartoons, video games, movies, theme parks and a wide range of products.[3]

The stories revolve around the adventures of Monica and her many friends in a fictional neighborhood known as “Lemon Tree” (Bairro do Limoeiro in the original version) in São Paulo. The neighborhood was inspired by the neighborhood of Cambuí, in Campinas and the city of Mogi das Cruzes, where de Sousa spent his childhood.[4] However, the comic books do not simply revolve around the stories of Monica and her friends. Other characters created by de Sousa include Chuck Billy ‘n’ FolksTina’s PalsLionel’s Kingdom and Bug-a-Booo.

Monica’s Gang was published by Abril and Globo and has been published by Panini Comics since 2007. In 2008 a spin-off series, Monica Teen, was created in a manga style and features the characters as teenagers.

Okay, now for the flavor. This looks to be a kind of bean soup – maybe red bean soup (or stew?) – which sounds very different. Daniel mentioned if I remember correctly that it’s a little thick. Let’s give it a go!

A light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added ham and scallion. The noodles came out nicely. A well engorged soft but not too soft standard instant. The broth was a nice pair as it had a slight thickness of it’s own – very slight. But it did taste like a bean soup, albeit thinner than most I’ve tried. It did impart the flavor well if not the texture. One of the more unique instant varieties I’ve ever had – was tasty. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code  7891079012789.

A big thanks to Daniel down in Brazil for sending this along! It’s been really hard to find varieties from South America over the years. So Daniel told me to be wary of the labelling that this is HOT as Brazilians don’t tend to eat a lot of spicy foods. This kind of surprised me; I would have thought they would have. Learn something new every day! Let’s take a look at this Mexican themed variety from Brazil.
