#64: Sapporo Ichiban Japanese Style Noodles & Chicken Soup

Lime green. A pleasing color to the eye however not one I would triangulate with chicken flavored instant noodles. This is really the only oddity I found here as I sampled Sapporo Ichiban’s Japanese style noodles and chicken flavored soup.

The noodles are very basic here; your usual fare of instant noodles in a rectangular cake. The cake was decently firm and not really a lot of crumbs in the bottom of the bag. Of course the cake was broken once to fit the pan. The single packet is the chicken soup base. Easily opened.

Here are the noodles and soup base cooking in the controlled test environment at The boiling point was reached and we saw a lot of foaming. However, this was dealt with swiftly and after three minutes, the noodles were perfectly cooked.

The final product in testing bowl alpha (click image to enlarge). I decided to try a variety of Sapporo Ichiban today as it had been windy (gusts up to 44mph) and rainy. Kitten chose the chicken for me to sample, and here we are. The noodles were nothing out of the ordinary; what one would expect from instant ramen noodles. I guess if anything, they were a slightly sturdier nature than some. tending to cling together a slight bit more. The broth was superb; strong sense of chicken essences combined with high temperature is very nice indeed. As always, I have been eating the noodles as I type this review.

Conclusions: Sapporo Ichiban Japanese style noodles with chicken flavor soup is very aptly named. I enjoyed it thoroughly, I got what I paid for and I got what I expected. The noodles were of good quality as was the soup base, although perhaps a slight bit less salt in the soup base would have gotten a higher rating. The official rating for this variety of instant ramen noodles is 3.5 stars. Get it here.

    I love these. I really don’t like the Nissin Chicken Ramen that you gave 5/5 but I would give these noodles 5/5
