Meet The Manufacturer #883: Yamachan Shio Ramen Seafood Clear Soup Base Mild

This is something a little different. This is two servings of fresh ramen in a pack. They’re made in San Jose and this looks to be something gourmet. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

The noodles are fresh – it looks like you could take them out and take a rolling pin to them and they’d turn back into dough! Pretty neat.

The soup base is a packet of liquid.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Just the noodles and broth this time. The noodles are really quite good; chewy and taste literally like they were just made. Definitely gourmet grade. The broth is interesting too. My only experience with the concept of Shio is a couple Shio flavor packs and one bowl. The broth here is salty, yes (Shio means salt in Japan) but the saltiness is tempered with a depth of flavors. It’s not violently fishy by any means – its quite nice really. I liked this one – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 767921019503

I know PSY’s gottten big here with the Gangnam Style, but I’m still surprised Kyary Pamyu Pamyu still hasn’t.
