Meet The Manufacturer: #1997: Nissin Cup Noodle Vegeta Buta-kyabetsu Tonkotsu

This is a very yellow Cup Noodle! It’s a pork and cabbage tonkotsu andc I noticed that it mentions ‘1/3’ in a few spots. I believe this is denoting that this contains 1/3 of the daily intake of vegetables one should get. That’s great – I really like it when lots of vegetables are included in a variety! As for tonkotsy, tonkotsu is a pork bone milky broth ramen – one of my favorites. Let’s take a look!

The noodle block.

Looks like a log of vegetables, pork and maybe egg in there.

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles hydrated well and have a flatness to them – standing Cup Noodles fare. The broth is definitely thick in this one, with a strong cabbage taste to it. It’s kind of the same consistency of split pea soup. Lots of cabbage everywhere and a lot of corn as well. This honestly reminds me of something more Irish than Japanese – it works quite nicely! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105232088.
