Here’s an interesting one from Colin – thanks again! This is an onion flavored shoyu. I’ve had a few onion flavor varieties – let’s give this one from Itomen a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it has meat or not. To prepare, add noodle block and clear sachet to 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in soup base. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A light tan powder.
A sachet of onions.
A decent quantity.
Finished (click to enlarge). Adde Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, chashu pork and hard boiled egg. The noodles were excellent – imagine if you had 2 standard instant noodles that were next to eachother. It’s like that; like a double-wide instant noodle and it works quite well. The broth was good – definitely shoyu, however not getting a huge amount of ‘onionniness’ from it. The onions did hydrate well, but they could definitely have been bigger and in the same quantity – would’ve worked better. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901104132269.
