Big Cup Noodle Mexican Chili Cheese
I was wondering if it was like their tomato ramen and it has some similarities, but it definitely is chili-like in a good way. I was pretty eager to try this cup noodle as flavour was New World different and it looked tasty.
The cup is very attractive with a nice deep red color with bold yellow print and green lettering. I like the picture of the Mexican wrestler on the cup who is about to drop kick you with the flavour of a beef chili bowl. The lid has a photo that shows lots of ingredients and there is plenty of stuff inside.
Tasting the noodles was like having a thinner version of a thick chili, but it is a soup and it was a very pleasant eating experience. It wasn't too spicy and it is pretty much true you can mix instant noodles with a huge variety of flavours and ingredients and have something delicious. I'm pretty sure that the cabbage might have been pickled or something, but it was all very nice mixed together. While I don't think this is one of my absolute favourites, it is something I would definitely have again.
Samurai Don Instant Kettle Rice with Tofu
I've tried a couple of these instant rices before and they can make for a nice change of pace from a cup of noodle. This particular instant box of rice is from their Donbei line (as in the udon noodle bowls) for the flavouring. I figured this would be a nice savoury rice dish and I wasn't disappointed.
