#147: Higashi Foods Higashimaru Nagasaki Sara Udon

So found this at Uwajimaya – Higashi Foods makes it. The sticker on the back says Higashimaru Nagasaki Sara Udon. It is 99% in Japanese.

Two dry powder packets and two noodles things. The noodles are lighter than a potato chip if you taste one before cooking.

A closeup on the seasoning packet’s graphics.

Look at all that powder! It awaits a noodle and water bath…

So here we are (click image to enlarge). On the back it said 180ml amongst some Japanese writing. I doubled that and cooked everything up. Dumped it in with the powder and shazam – some really good stuff! The noodles are very thin and light and the seasoning was absolutely perfect. Sweet and salty, it has sugar and soy sauce in it. I am most happily giving this stuff  5.0 out of 5.0 stars. This is truly an excellent find! I think it would be even better with some vegetables and some meat added to it. I think it would be just awesome. God this stuff is good!
