#1241: Nissin Donbei Kansai Soy Sauce Flavor Udon

Was digging through the box today and decided I’d better get on this one. I couldn’t really find a lot about it other than the Google translation from Nissin Japan’s site. It mentions something about being special for the rainy season. Also mentions seaweed. Let’s give it a try!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish extracts. To prepare, boil 500ml water and add noodle block. Cook for 5 minutes. Empty seasoning sachet in bowl, add broth and stir then noodles.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Looks to contain green onions as well as powder base.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added scrambled egg and kamaboko. The noodles have a very enjoyable texture and chew. They’re udon alright – wide and hearty. The broth (which I expected to be salty) was rich but not overly so. I could taste a ‘of the sea’ flavor with notes of seaweed. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4902105106020.

It’s December and I’ll never forget the Christmas morning that I heard the Godfather of Soul James Brown died. I think I’ll be posting some James Brown video this month.
