#1890: Kuriki Beef Tongue Shio Mayo Ramen

Okay so you might be wondering – beef tongue shio mayo ramen – that couldn’t possibly mean… Yes. Where did I get it though?

This is Shinichi. In the intro to the Bottom Ten List video, he was kind enough to do the narration. I thought he resided in Osaka, Japan, but he’s currently in the Seattle area going to college! We decided we should meet up at The Ramen Rater WHQ and talk about noodles. He’s working with Mr., Yamato of Yakantei in an attempt to educate people about instant noodles from very localized regions of Japan – I’ll let you know a lot more about it soon. He brought me some really different varieties of instant noodles over, one of them was this one.  To answer the question, yes – it’s mayonnaise flavor! Let’s check this one out!

The back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish. to prepare, boil 550ml water and cook noodle block for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir – cook another 1.5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of two sachets.

Has an interesting scent – going to guess that this is the beef tongue flavor.

The second sachet.

Wow – it smells like mayonnaise – very strange!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), hard boiled egg and barbecue pork. The noodles have a nice gauge and tooth to them – like a light upgrade to your standard instant noodles. But that’s where the term ‘standard’ ends it applicability. The broth has a strong mayonnaise flavor with a kind of beefiness which is very ‘organ like’ – guessing it is ‘tongue-like.’ It’s a little weird eating something that’s supposed to taste like a tongue of a cow, but honestly, it’s quite good. The broth has a nice flavor and isn’t super thin, either. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4543185002002.

If you’re in the mood for something Japanese and want to try it with mayo style, look no further! Kewpie Mayonnaise (Japanese Mayo) – 500g Net 17.64 FL. OZ.

#1831: Kuriki Plum Mayo Ramen

Okay so you might be wondering – plum mayo ramen – that couldn’t possibly mean… Yes – plum and mayonnaise flavor. Where did I get it?

This is Shinichi. In the intro to the Bottom Ten List video, he was kind enough to do the narration. I thought he resided in Osaka, Japan, but he’s currently in the Seattle area going to college! We decided we should meet up at The Ramen Rater WHQ and talk about noodles. He’s working with Mr., Yamato of Yakantei in an attempt to educate people about instant noodles from very localized regions of Japan – and they have a special subscription box to check out. He brought me some really different varieties of instant noodles over, one of them was this one.  To answer the question, yes – it’s mayonnaise flavor! Let’s check this one out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish. to prepare, boil 550ml water and cook noodle block for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir – cook another 1.5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of two powder sachets.

Has a definite plum scent – something I’ve never found when sniffing instant noodle seasonings!

The second seasoning sachet.

This one does indeed smell like mayonnaise!

Finished. Added spring onion. The noodles are perfect instant noodles – gauge and chew are as standard and right as the sky is blue. The broth is something that will make anyone stop for a second and then emit a resounding ‘hmm.’ It’s definitely got a plum scent as well as a mayonnaise scent. I would never think of dipping a plum in mayonnaise, but perhaps people in Japan have and maybe some even do. Well, it works – there’s a nice balance of flavor and little bits of plum and a hint of spiciness.  My wife said it tasted like Christmas! This works though – worth trying if you can find it. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4543185002170.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a nice scent with pork notes.

A second sachet.

This smells like mayonnaise for sure!

A solid ingredients sachet.

A very nice assortment of what looks to be crab stick, corn, cabbage and other bits.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added pork, spring onion, mung bean sprout and hard boiled egg. The noodles were extremely good – excellent quality and chew to them. Quite a lot of them as well. The broth was really intriguing; indeed, it has the flavor of mayonnaise, but also I get a pork kind of flavor as well; like a creamy mayo pork. It works very well! The added bits hydrated very well and were of great diversity and quality – corn and crab stick among them. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4543185001975.
