Here’s one I got from Paul S. – also got one from Colin. Thanks guys! What’s kind of crazy here is that this is the first Minstant noodle I’ve reviewed from Mexico (or at least made for the Mexican market). Instant noodles (fideos instantanea) are extremely popular in Mexico, as well as by the Latino population in the United States. Sopa means soup, sabor a camaron, limon y habanero means shrimp, lemon and habanero flavor. Anyways, let’s crack this sucker open!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add noodle block to two cups boiling water and cook for three minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet – this one’s known as lime chili shrimp where the US pack version is concerned.
The seasoning powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added large shrimp, coriander, Texas Pete hot sauce and sweet onion. The noodles hydrated nicely and have a standard domestic gauge. The broth has a nice bite to it and good shrimp flavor, although very thin. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789002960.
A week or two ago, my friend Paul S. brought over a couple packs of instant noodles (click to enlarge) he got on vacation. He went down to Mexico and picked these up for me! Always been hard to source stuff from Mexico. Why? No clue; it just is. Anyways, thanks Paul, you rock!
Here’s what I had for lunch (click to enlarge). Some Daddy Kari 365 Curry Flavour Instant Noodles (here’s the original review) that were sent by Jerry W. of Malaysia (thanks again!), sweet onion, thin sliced ribeye, a 2 egg omelet with a slice of processed cheese and some Tabasco Jalapeno sauce and a little bit of Dua Belibis chili sauce on top. Really tasty stuff! By the way – I started a new facebook page here. It’s in protest of the ridiculously large amount of election signs everywhere that look so nasty. Like the page if you agree!
