#2246: Dream Kitchen Soy Sauce

The last Dream Kitchen variety I had wasn’t all that great; it was tonkotsu but didn’t seem to really scream tonkotsu to me. This one is soy sauce (shoyu) and hopefully will be a good one. Let’s find out!

An included fork!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

A light powder.

The vegetables sachet.

A smattering of vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, sous vide chicken, spring onion and nanami togarashi. The noodles hydrated alright in this one – good quantity and a fairly decent chew. The broth was a kind of soy sauce thing; not bad really. The vegetables did alright – especially the corn, but it just kind of seemed odd to include carrot. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 854195002086.

#2145: Dream Kitchen Tonkotsu

Found this one at the Uwajimaya in Renton, Washington. Never had seen it before and by what it looks like on the label, this is a private label for a big distributor here in the USA by a company in Singapore. Unsure which company makes it though. Let’s check it out!

A vegetables sachet.

Looks like green onion, carrot and corn.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and hard boiled egg. The noodles hydrated decently and were thin and crumbly. The broth was kind of a ways off from being tonkotsu, although it was a little thick and a cloudy light color. The vegetables hydrated well. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 854195002093.
