#669: Nissin Gozen Tempura Soba

Today, my Top Ten List has made news in Japan (Google Translate here) and so I thought it would only be proper to try a nice Japanese bowl of noodles by Nissin. This one’s packing some tempura!

Here’s the import label (click image to enlarge).

A single packet of powdered seasoning.

Buckwheat noodles with the seasoning on top awaiting the boiling water.

Here’s the tempura! I add this at the very end to keep it nice and crunchy!

I liked the noodles – tasty and slightly chewy. The broth was very nice – a salty and slightly sweet flavor with hints of fish. The tempura was good too – crunchy and flavorful. All in all a good bowl of noodles – very nice! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 4902105201961 .
