Here’s one my friend Paul S. brought me back from a trip to Mexico – thanks again, bro! So instant noodles are very popular in Latin America. A lot of flavors that reflect the local tastes, this one being shrimp. Let’s check it out!
#2303: Maruchan Sopa Maruchan Sabor A Camaron – Mexico
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add noodle block to 2 cups boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in seasoning sachet and let simmer another minute. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A light powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, spring onion and pepper jack cheese. The noodles hydrated well and have a soft tooth and very standard gauge. The broth has a shrimp taste – nothing spicy though. This seems to be identical to the version of Maruchan shrimp ramen sold here in the United States. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789002977.
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!
