#3358: Nissin Top Ramen Shrimp Flavor Bowl - United States

Here’s the second of three new Top Ramen bowls from here in the United States. At first I though ‘okay, it’s just Top Ramen in a bowl.’ But the extras in these are very interesting. Definitely excited to try ’em. Let’s do it!

#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!

The noodle block.

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!

Here’s another one of the Nissin Mexico varieties I received recently – thanks again! Spicy? Let’s find out! It mentions that it’s got kick from habanero which is most definitely spicy.

Loose bits from the bowl.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, shrimp, spring onion, mild cheddar, red pepper flake, and Bufalo Clasica sauce. The noodles have a nice kind of whole wheat bump to them which was quite nice. Te flavor was a kind of lemony and spicy affair with notes of shrimp. Spiciness was there but balanced and mellow. Included vegetables were great. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662248140.

#3336: Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor Bowl – United States

#3336: Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor Bowl - United States

This one came in a special ‘First Taste Club’ box from Nissin Foods USA – pretty snazzy. So, what’s the big deal? Well, it’s Top Ramen, in a bowl. It also comes with vegetables. It also comes with… teriyaki sauce? I’m very curious about this one – let’s cook it up and ruminate on this…

A dry sachet of vegetables.

A wet sachet of teriyaki sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, carrot, sesame seeds, and shichimi togarashi. Noodles worked well and had a nice character to them. The broth smelled very much like homemade chicken broth – until the teriyaky liquid went in. It eradicated all taste of chicken in there. Vegetables were prevalent. I’m not saying it’s bad – in fact it was quite good – just when I see chicken I expect a chicken flavor. 3.5 out of 6.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662026038.

#3329: Nissin Cup Noodles Dark Dragon Sabor Salsa Negra Y Limon - Mexico

I just have to say – what an ominous name for an instant noodle! I really dig that! When I saw this, I had to contact Nissin Mexico and see if I could get some. Well, they sent it! They also sent three U.F.O. Yakisoba varieties as well which you’ll see on upcoming reviews.

It’s been so crazy lately; apartment remodel, sinus infection, wife in the hospital (note this review is appearing about 100 days after I wrote it and fingers crossed shes getting out the day I’m writing it). It’s nice that things are at the cusp of really coming back to normal and things will be mellower. Let’s give this a try and check out the videos at the end – the regular Instant Noodle Recipe Time as well as the Spicy Noodle Mukbang! Let’s go!

Loose bits from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken, cilantro, mozarella, fried onion, and Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce. The noodles are really quite good in this one – round and a kind of whole grain-ness to them. The broth is like what I would envision a Mexican tom yum to be. Good heat and good crisp flavor from lemon. All in all quite impressed. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662247198.

#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.

#3313: Nissin Raoh Kogashi Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen - Japan

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘This is called geikikara’ (extremely hot); however, it’s not as hot as it thinks it is. We bet you will like this even if you are not a big fan of spiciness. The rich tonkotsu soup contains delicious ma-yu (burnt sesame oil and garlic), and it creates an irresistable smell for your appetite. The unique octagonal form of the box is to let it stand out from other noodles.’

The non-spicy version made a high spot on the 2019 Top Ten Instant Noodle Bowls list – let’s give this one a try.

Lots of meat and veg in here. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105245972.

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!

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.

#3302: 7-Eleven Premium / Nissin Mouko Tanmen Nakamoto – Japan

#3302: 7-Eleven Premium / Nissin Mouko Tanmen Nakamoto - Japan

I saw an article mentioning two new ‘super spicy’ noodle coup out of Japan. Well, I found one of them (actually I found both but this one was cheap on eBay while the other required buying six and that wasn’t happening). I keep seeing that this is a spicy Mongolian miso tanmen which sounded interesting.

Today’s an interesting day. If you don’t know, I’ve been doing a lot of diet and exercise stuff. I have a weird little project I’m about to complete. I have my wife’s old cellphone and it’s decent as far as a vidoeo camera. Today, my daughter and I will walk west to Lake Forest Park, hit ACE Hardware for a couple of big washers. We walked there a couple of days ago for some parts already, but I want bigger washers. I’m drilling a hole in one of the drink holders and then there’s a threaded length of screw that the phone in a clamp kind of thing will scren into and we’ll be able to do landscape videography of our walk – kind of treating the stroller like a dolly. All said and done our walk will probably be 12 miles, recording our trek from Lake Forest Park, through Kenmore, up a hill into Bothell, and wrapping around back to Kenmore and home. Pretty stoked!

Then After she’s had her lunch and is down for a nap, it’ll be time for cooking noodles. Then I’ll do a mukbang of this one. Let’s get started!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Loose bits and seasoning from the cup.

A wet sachet of spicy liquid.

Finished (click to enlarge). Nothing added as this was for a mukbang. This one has some of the thickest noodles I’ve ever seen in an instant cup, and they hydrated quite well. Broth is very rich and hearty with bits of kikurage, lots of tofu and other vegetable. As for the heat level, it’s very tame. The article I read mentioned it being super spicy, however the reviewer must be a little sensitive to heat. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105233634.

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Indulge yourself freely with this dish because these are non-fried noodles with whole grains. We LOVE how healthy the noodle tastes, and no wonder it is very popular. The tonkotsu soup has much depth of flavor matching perfectly with garlic. Toppings are chashu, wood ear mushrooms and scallions. Since it is the lightest one out of this month’s pack, when you crave ramen in the middle of the night, this is the best bet.’

Chashu is very thin and just a slight tease. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105245507.
