#149: Maruchan Akai Kitsune Udon Instant Oriental Noodles

So here’s one of the large noodle bowls I have. If you’ll recall, I’ve reviewed Kitsune Udon before – I did Sapporo Ichiban’s. This one’s a little different. The Kitsune is much bigger this time. Also, it’s a bowl!

See? Got some big stuff here.

There was a while lot of powder in here – a whole heck of a lot of powder.

The finished product (click image to enlarge). Doesn’t that look nice? I think the bowl came out looking very appetizing. The udon was nice and thick and not too rubbery – I liked that. The broth was salty and very soy. The kitsune was delectable – like a chunk of meat but not meat. Ultra tasty. I don’t know what the little things on the kitsune are… They were interesting – kind of spongy. I’m giving this bowl 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. Tasty stuff! Get it here.


  1. The spongy things on tofu are dried egg. Kitsune udon is tofu udon. Kitsune means fox. In Japanese myth, fox likes eating tofu. I had this bowl when I was in Japan in 2009. Love it. To see this review here brings back memory. Definitely will go back there one day. Nice country.
