Meet The Manufacturer: #1999: Nissin Curry Udon

Wow – the cusp of history with this review, folks. The next post will be #2000. That’s a LOT of reviews. It’s funny though; it’s such a regular part of my day that it doesn’t seem too insanely crazy to me anymore. But then again, yeah – most people think I’m pretty nutty, but hey it’s a fun hobby and it’s unique – I dig my niche. Anyways, one of my favorite flavors is curry. Since I was a kid and my mom would make curried chicken livers for dinner (she hasn’t made that in years; she questions the quality of chicken livers these days), I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Well, this is Japanese curry; usually not super spicy and leaning towards the sweet side which is always nice. Let’s have a look at this cup.

The noodle block. Note that this is udon and the noodles are a little thicker.

Some of the seasoning and pieces from the cup – seeing some bits of kamaboko and maybe pork.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and kamaboko. The noodles are wide and slightly thick. They’re floppy and really ride that wave of curry broth. the broth is like a voluptuous silky sauce that has that sweet and hint of spicy Japanese curry taste – wonderful thickness to it. The broth is made even better with the supplied kamaboko, tofu and pork, all of which were just spot-on. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105238714.
