#1416: Myojo Chukazanmai Szechuan Style Miso

Here’s an interesting one. Myojo does this premium Chukazanmai line and there are quite a few different varieties! This one has me a little worried though. I haven’t really liked Szechuan style much of anything in the past. Hopefully this will turn the tide! Let’s check it out.

The distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains chicken and shrimp.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add noodles to 600ml boiling water for 4 minutes. Add contents of sachets and stir. Enjoy!

The premium noodle block.

The powder base sachet.

A light, granular concoction.

The liquid sachet.

Has a Szechuan scent. Hmm.


Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles were quite nice – they had some serious chewiness and a feel of higher quality than many. The flavor however wasn’t the greatest. It had a miso side of things and a funky Szechuan soy and chilli flavor that just felt greasy and funky to me. I could see some people liking it, but just not my kind of thing. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4902881052313.
