The thin rice noodles.

The soup base powder sachet.

Light stuff.

An oil sachet.

A seasoned oil with a pork scent.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like chives and maybe some TVP?

Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, and fried garlic. The vermicelli came out nice and soft. As always, I do a couple cross-cuts with a pair of kitchen scissors to make it easier to enjoy. The broth has a light pork taste to it, great oiliness, and the vegetables and TVP that were supplied hydrated nicely as an accompaniment. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8934563978150.

#2048: Acecook Kado-Men Koikoku Tonkotsu

Here’s one from the April offering of Box From Japan! This looks like one big bowl of tonkotsu! Let’s have a look inside! By the way – Box From Japan is a really great way to get some instant noodles you probably haven’t ever tried before, nor in a million years wouldn’t have access to here in the USA. With that, let’s crack this bog one open!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Probably contains fish and pork. To prepare, add in everything but liquid sachet. Fill to line and steep for 3 minutes. Add in liquid sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The powder base sachet.

A fluffy powder.

A sachet of vegetables.

Quiet the mixture!

The liquid sachet.

Has a nice garlic scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kizami shoga and chashu pork. The noodles are definitely high in quantity, although seemed a little more dough-y than I would have liked. The broth is a nice tonkotsu – good thickness and flavor to it. A slight bit on the salty side however which detracted a little from it’s richness. The supplied vegetables hydrated well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901071237202.

#2035: Acecook Maru Uma Curry Udon

Another one from Javier over at Box From Japan! Thanks! So if you didn’t already know, BoxFromJapan.com is a subscription service. You can get 4 instant noodles from Japan a month. What’s amazing is that I not yet received a single on that I’d reviewed previously which is truly amazing. You can also get a monthly Japanese candy box! Pretty rad! Today, I’ll be checking out this Acecook curry udon cup. Let’s crack it open!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat or not. To prepare, open lid and add boiling water to fill line. Cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir well and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Some of the little bits and pieces from the bottom of the cup.

Wow this is pretty neat – like a small brick of curry!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kizami shoga, spring onion and chashu pork. The udon come out soft and supple with a nice light chew to it and really comfort-food like. Especially when paired with the curry broth – a nice rich curry with a little hint of spiciness in there. Unfortunately, the big curry block did disintegrate, but it had a kind of gritty broth..  The bits of fried tofu and mincemeat are a nice touch. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071226206.

#1726: Vina Acecook Oh! Ricey Pho Ga

Been a while since I’ve done a pho review. I would definitely say I’m a fan of pho, but definitely the beef varieties. Where I live, there’s no end to the pho restaurants – I’m guessing there’s probably at least 20 within 5 miles of here. Anyways, let’s check this one out.

Detail from the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open lid halfway and add in sachet contents. Add boiling water to the fill line and let steep for 3 minutes, covered. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge).

An included fork!

Rice noodles.

The powder soup base sachet.

Light powder with a chickenish scent.

A seasoned oil sachet.

Bright yellow color.

The vegetables sachet.

An interesting mixture.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added basil, baked chicken and mung bean sprouts.
The noodles are thin rice noodles with a flat wide gauge. They seemed a little on the
mushy side. The broth has a semi-decent chicken flavor, but didn’t seem as full bodied as it
should be. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8934563219147.
