The hispanic version of Cup Noodles. Maruchen is instant ramen noodles packaged in styrofoam cups. The most popular flavor is the original which just brings small pieces of vegetables but there's also different flavors available such as Chicken or Shrimp. Maruchen is especially popular amongst South Florida college students because all you do is add hot water for a quick lunch. It's also popular in cities with a high latino population.
