This week's noodle review is our first sampling of Nissin's Hot & Spicy Bowl Noodles line. I know I've been reviewing a lot of Nissin products lately, but at least in this part of the country, they are by far the most widely available products in regular grocery stores, and I think it's worthwhile to find out which ones are worth the try. These are described as "With Shrimp," rather than just shrimp-flavored, so I expect to see some little dried crustaceans in here. Let's see what we've got!
Paldo Yukejang bowl, though that isn't listed as an ingredient. The broth is definitely spicy and flavorful, too! I am tasting roasted red pepper, onion, beef, and a cool herb flavor (which the ingredient list reveals to be cilantro). It is a very hearty, almost stew-like broth; it comes across to me as a cajun-style flavor, reminiscent of a jambalaya or gumbo.
Products like this are the reason I like to try all the different offerings of a particular manufacturer--sometimes I can find a hidden gem, even in the domestic dry soup section. I highly recommend this one! :D
