Re-Review: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Tomato Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Thought I’d try this one again – it’s pretty sad – I have nothing new to review! Looking forward to some new varieties coming soon though hopefully! A couple from the UK have informed me that they’re sending a treasure trove of interesting varieties! Can’t wait! In the meantime, here’s the elusive Cucharealo – haven’t seen it for sale anywhere yet. Good stuff! Here’s the original review here.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a fried egg, cheese, Taxes Pete hot sauce, sweet onions, chicken lunch meat and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are great – short and there’s tons of them. The broth has a really nice tomato taste with a hit of cumin. Great stuff! Gonna give it a 3.5 out of 5.0 stars yet again. UPC bar code 070662081013 .

This place was amazing when I was a kid; you could put your hand on the window outside and it would make the train inside move! I miss the old guard of the enormous department store.

#849: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Tomato Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Here’s another one of the new varieties that Nissin Foods USA sent me earlier this month to review. I got a comment from someone saying Cucharealo means ‘spoon it up.’ Makes sense – Nissin has a similar product called ‘Spoon it’ with flavors like chicken, beef and beet stew while the Cucharealo line is more hitting the Mexican flavors. The last one I tried was awesome – let’s give this one a try!

Short, thin noodles.

A single seasoning packet.

I gave it a taste – has a slightly tangy tomato taste.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onion, red bell pepper, some over roasted chicken, Krazy Mixed Up Salt, a fried egg, Crystal hot sauce and some cheddar cheese. The noodles thin and short – definitely good for a spoon. The broth is pretty good – has a good tomato flavor. Not bad! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662081013 .

#327: Gomex 3 Miến Mì Tôm Hùm Lobster Flavour Instant Noodles

So here’s a brand I’ve never tried before. Gomex is produced by Viet Hung Food, another brand I’ve never heard of before. So I suppose its time to strap on the old noodle bowl and try this stuff.

Clockwise from top: veggies, seasoned oil, soup base.

From left to right: veggies, soup base powder and seasoned oil. The noodle block is of the preseasoned variety – could eat it like potato chips.

So I think the Tower of Power record’s warped enough so it’s time for a new one to sit atop a bowl while the noodles cook. Ole Bunk here should do quite nicely.

Click image to enlarge. Finished product with one egg added. The broth is tasty and a light spicy. The noodles are a tad thinner than the regular kind you’d expect in a pack like this. They’re really quite good. The veggies add a nice touch and it all comes together very nicely. I’m giving it 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Wow – what an awesome commercial that was! After eating these noodles, I went outside and jumped around for a while.

It’s my birthday tomorrow.
