Lots of loose seasoning and garnish from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). The standard thin and ample Cup Noodles noodles are here in force! Little bits of pork throughout and lots of vegetables. Unfortunately, all the flavors that could be intertwined kind of all blended together completely and became monotone. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN 4897878630035.

#2206: Nissin Deka Buto Kuro M-yu Tonkotsu

Here’s another one sent to me by Javier from Box From Japan. Box From Japan has subscriptions for all sorts of neat Japanese things. I regret to say that I was informed that they won’t be taking subscriptions for their ramen boxes for now – hopefully that will start again soon. He mentioned that you can purchase instant noodles from them here. Here’s what he had to say about this particular variety:

Large portion of intensely flavored thick noodles that you’ll get totally hooked on. Noodles: Straight, thick noodles. Texture is smooth and a bit hard. Soup: Thick pig feet soup with a black sesame oil aroma. The noodles mix well in this soup. Ingredients: Ground beef, toasted sesame seeds, chives, and red chili pepper.

Sounds interesting – let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains meat. To prepare, add powder sachet and boiling water to fill line. cover for 4 minutes. Add in liquid sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are thick and have a really great chewiness to them – really good stuff! The broth is a rich pork tonkotsu, and the augmentation of the hamburger and vegetables are really impressive. It’s quite tasty and premium – wouldn’t have expected hamburger as a tonkotsu garnish would be so good! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105238479.

Here’s a new one from Javier over at Box From Japan offers subscription boxes of instant noodles and other Japan related awesomeness like candy! For $25/month, you get 4 really unique instant noodle bowls to your door – that includes shipping.

Cup noodles made under the supervision of Mr. Kenji Tsukada, the storeowner of the famous shop “Hongare Chuka Soba Gyorai” in Koishikawa, Tokyo. We have reproduced the “Ina Niwa Chuka Soba” from that store’s billboard menu. The Noodles: Straight noodles with a unique, smooth, slippery texture.

I really enjoy the seafood component; good sardine taste. The included vegetables were of good quality and the pork was good as well. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105235874.
