#1501: Acecook Ohmori Chukafu Yakisoba

What does one do after reviewing 1,500 varieties of instant noodles? All I could think of was review number 1,501. Chow mein sounded nice today and I do have an open container of Kewpie mayo in the fridge. I think after trying so many yakisoba varieties that have mayo with them, not including it when having it is kind of a tragedy. This was a strange one as far as translation goes. I looked around and found it called Super Big Cup and then found this one and thought this would be the right translation! If not, please let me know. Anyways, it’s onwards towards review 2,000. Let’s get to it!

A distributor/import sticker (click image to enlarge). Looks to contain fish products.

Detail from the bottom of the box (click image to enlarge). To prepare, open lid halfway. take out sachets. Empty vegetable sachet back in and fill with boiling water. Re-cover and let sit for 3 minutes. Open drain spout and drain off the water. Add in contents of sauce sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The lid (click image to enlarge).

A large noodle block.

The sauce sachet.

Has a seafood scent.

The solid ingredients sachet.

Looks like cabbage amongst other things.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, sweet onion, kizami shoga, Kewpie mayonnaise, prawns, cabbage and Worcestershire sauce. The noodles have a nice chew to them and aren’t spongy as a lot of instant soba noodles tend to be. However, the flavoring is way too salty for my taste and the XO taste gets run over by the saltiness, which is a pity. The solid ingredients hydrated well. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 4901071206994.

Here’s another Acecook variety – available on Amazon!
