#1895: Maruchan Seimen Houjyun Koku Shoyu

Here’s another one that was sent to me by Javier over at Box From Japan – thanks! Box From Japan is a subscription service – you can get a box sent to you every month with some great noodles within! This one looks really fancy – the whole thing is shiny and gold! Let’s have a look inside!

Here’s detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains pork and fish. To prepare, add in vegetable sachet. Add boiling water to fill line and cover for 5 minutes. Add in soup base and stir well. Garnish with nori (seaweed). Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a sweet pork scent to it.

The vegetable and meat sachet.

Wow – pork and nice big pieces of vegetables.

A sachet of nori.

A nice big piece!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg. The noodles are absolutely excellent – nice and chewy but not tough. They’re perfectly hydrated and of a good, thick gauge. The broth is really good too – a soy sauce flavor with a little sweetness and a beautiful oiliness. The piece of seaweed is an excellent plus as well as the garnish pack which included pork, bamboo shoot and spring onion of which all were excellent. A beautiful bowl of instant ramen. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990334112.
