Here’s another one from BoxFromJapan.com. They’re a subscription service where you can get a box of noodles from Japan every month (they also have neat candy boxes from Japan as well). Still to this date I haven’t gotten a repeat or anothing I’ve ever reviewed in the past – pretty awesome! Here’s what they have to say about this one:
Ever since being founded in 1931, and located in Nihombashi, Tokyo, the long-standing Western-style restaurant “Taimeiken” has continually sustained its good reputation. Its standard “Omurice” menu comes arranged with a serving of cup noodles. Soup: Its chicken extract is cooked authentically, and by adding a vegetable extract with tomatoes the overall avor is sweetened with a tomato taste. Noodles: They are exible, supple, tasty to swallow and their seasoning goes together perfectly with the soup. Ingredients: The “Omurice” menu is made with scrambled eggs and green peas coupled together with a tomato soup
I really like the little bit of info they include for every noodle! Let’s check this one out!

some of the loose ingredients from the cup.
The sachet which was affixed to the lid.
Has kind of ketchup scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added a two egg omelette. The noodles hydrated perfectly and have a little chew to them which I liked. The gauge was thin. Broth was very saucy – kind of like a tomato sauce, augmented very nicely with bits of egg, peas (which hydrated very well) and some odd little time circular things I am not sure of. Very Chef Boyardee with a more adult spin – I like it! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901734027140.
If you are keen on ramen, this is a must see film, bar-none. Tampopo
Here’s a clip from the film ‘Tampopo.’ They bust into a restaurant kitchen and make omurice; basically a rice omelette.
