#170: Myojo Chukazanmai Japanese Style Noodles With Soup Base Soybean Paste Flavor

Second one of these I’ve tried…

Some dry powder, some goopy stuff which I figure is soybean paste.

And yes – it was soybean paste and sesame oil. I must admit it was one of the harder packets of goop that I’ve dispensed.

Some sesame seeds, sesame oil beads dancing atop the soup and the soybean paste flavor rounding it out. Tasted like some kind of meal I would expect to have in a nice place by the water. I’m giving this one 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. It was pretty great stuff! Get it here.
