#2160: Menraku Japanese Yakisoba Umami Sauce

It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed anything by Menraku. Alwats bowls and always pretty good stuff. This one’s a yakisoba I got while on vacation in California’s Bay Area! Let’s check it out!

Detail of the back od the side and bottom of the package (click to enlarge).

Detail of the lid under the outer wrap (click to enlarge). To prepare, open at tab A and take out sachets. Add in garnish sash sachet contents and boiling water to fill line. Close and let steep for 3 minutes. Open the C tab and drain off water. Add in content of liquid sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The liquid sachet.

Thick with a nice yakisoba scent.

The garnish sachet.

Looks like bits of cabbage.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork, garlic, spring onion, enoki mushroom and mayonnaise. The noodles have a good chew and good gauge to them. They picked up the sauce which coated everything and had a very good taste – Worcestershire, salty and sweet and a little bit of a smoky kind of taste. The cabbage hydrated perfect and was large and lots of it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4902663012955.
