#2190: Myojo Barikata Noukou Tonkotsu Shoyu

Here’s another one from Javier over at! Box From Japan is a subscription service – you can get a box of ramen (and candy too) from Japan every month for $25. I can honestly say I still haven’t gotten a variety I’ve reviewed before from them – something pretty amazing! Here’s what they had to say about this variety:

The Noodles: Noodles with a harmony of hardness, straightness, and thinness. The rich soup accentuates the unique noodles. The noodles have a floury quality while still being ramen shop-esque. They are non-fried noodles with an added hardness and al dente quality. The Soup: We first added soy sauce, garlic, and ginger to a pork bone extract base. We then combined the mixture with a potherb blended pork oil to achieve a rich, smooth pork bone soy sauce flavor. The soup’s compatibility with the noodles is extraordinary. The Toppings: We focused mainly on roast pork, adding bamboo shoots and green onions, plus sweet red pepper for color.

Awesome! Let’s check it out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, hard boiled egg and chashu pork. The bowl was done so fast (literally sixty seconds) and the noodles were just perfect. This and definitely had a floury flavor to them – reminisent of Hakata style. The broth was like a gravy – a sloppy tasty wonderful gravywith some amazing flavor. The bits of vegetables were decent as well. The only problem I had with this one was the slice of pork, which was a little on the rubbery side with a kind of over seasoned thing going on. Aside from that, this was a top ten bowl. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4902881421553.

The flavor was good too – the tom yam wasn’t overbearing, but spicy. I’ve had things be too spicy that kind of kill the flavor aspect, but this has a nice balance. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#2100: Myojo Mee Goreng Original Flavour

Myojo has three new Mee Goreng varieties. I’m unsure if there’s a difference between this one and their regular one I reviewed in the past other than the packaging, but I guess we’ll see! It’s a good day for some mee goreng I think – let’s crack it open and have a look!

Detail of the pack of the package (click to enlarge). Contains oyster. To prepare, cook the noodles in a pot for 2-3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Combine and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder seasoning.

A granular mixture.

A dual sachet – seasoned oil on the left and sweet soy on the right.

The two ingredients mingling together.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, coriander and shrimp. The noodles had a good gauge and chewiness for a mee goreng. Good quantity too. The flavor was a salty and sweet one with lots of it coming from the sweet soy sauce. I would have liked to have had a little inkling of spiciness in there, but this was really good. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888107000848.
