#1152: Sapporo Ichiban Tomato & Basil Shio Ramen

Check this big sucker out! This one was sent by a guy who runs a store in Japan called Yanaktei (www.yakantei.com). Kind of looks pizza minded eh? Let’s check it out!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains egg, pork and chicken.

Here’s the noodle block – note that there’s a lot of seasoning interspersed.

A ton of bits and pieces in this one!

A small liquid packet.

Looks to be like a tomato oil – has a very strong fresh tomato scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Sauteed some pork butt with a sprinkle of garlic salt for a few and then added Walla Walla sweet onion, green onion and bell pepper. Garnished with grape tomatoes. The noodles aren’t amazing; but they’re not bad either. They have a standard noodle cup texture. The broth is very nice – the tomato packet really punches home the tomato flavor – and it’s a real taste, but a ketchup smack. The bits and pieces are very nice too – scrambled egg, veggies and some meat round out nicely. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 4901734019503.
