Here’s one of the new Maruchan Bowls that they recently sent samples of. The only Maruchan bowls I’ve had before were only made in Japan – like the Midori No Tanuki and the Akai Kitsune Udon, both of which are in the Top Ten Instant Noodle Bowls list. Today I’m having the chicken variety.

The seasoning powder packet. Note the ’2′ – it is added after cooking.
Has a really nice chicken flavor!
The vegetable packet.
Corn and other type of veggies are here.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, sweet onion, green bell pepper and oven baked chicken with italian seasoning and Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning. The noodles are great – thin and flat with that ‘comfort food’ niceness that instant noodles for the US market sometimes have. The broth is great – has a very nice chicken flavor that I thoroughly enjoyed. The veggies? More than expected and hydrated well. It certainly seemed like a lot of noodles in this one – quite filling! This is a great noodle bowl – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 041789003011 – get it here.
