#2056: Koyo Reduced Sodium Garlic & Pepper Ramen

Can’t remember where I got this one, but it’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed anything by Koyo so I thought I’d check it out. So lower sodium, organic noodles, Vegan… But how will it taste? It’s tough to cover all these bases and make something that’s going to have a lot of flavor. Let’s find out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Certified Vegan friendly. To prepare, add noodle block to 1 1/3 cups boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

A small noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has an odd scent; very curious.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and kizami shoga. The noodles are thick – more like ramyun. They have an alright chew; although they seem almost doughy- and not Hakata style ramen noodle doughy. The broth does taste of garlic and pepper, but it’s so very bland. It really is like you could boil some pepper and a clove of garlic and achieve the same results. Not at all to my liking. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 813551002306.

I think every time I do a review of Vegan noodles I end up with this video. This lady seems kind of strange, with her affinity for posing with vegetables as she does, but the dish she makes actually does sound pretty good.
