#2035: Acecook Maru Uma Curry Udon

Another one from Javier over at Box From Japan! Thanks! So if you didn’t already know, BoxFromJapan.com is a subscription service. You can get 4 instant noodles from Japan a month. What’s amazing is that I not yet received a single on that I’d reviewed previously which is truly amazing. You can also get a monthly Japanese candy box! Pretty rad! Today, I’ll be checking out this Acecook curry udon cup. Let’s crack it open!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat or not. To prepare, open lid and add boiling water to fill line. Cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir well and enjoy!

Some of the little bits and pieces from the bottom of the cup.

Wow this is pretty neat – like a small brick of curry!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kizami shoga, spring onion and chashu pork. The udon come out soft and supple with a nice light chew to it and really comfort-food like. Especially when paired with the curry broth – a nice rich curry with a little hint of spiciness in there. Unfortunately, the big curry block did disintegrate, but it had a kind of gritty broth..  The bits of fried tofu and mincemeat are a nice touch. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071226206.
