#363: Nissin Demae Iccho Tonkotsu Flavour Macaroni

Spread the love

Since I did my first radio interview today, I thought I’d review something equally interesting – Japanese macaroni weirdness!

Powder on the left, an oil/sauce on the right.

Yup – here’s what it looks like inside the bag! It’s really macaroni!

So the sauce is oil and other things – including cooking wine!

I had my doubts; they  weren’t getting any bigger at two minutes and thirty seconds, and then when the timer beeped at three minutes, boom – they were done. The noodles are really really light – not chewy really at all – they almost dissolve in your mouth. If teeth aren’t your thing, these are definitely for you! The flavoring is great – was expecting it to be really soupy as it called for 500ml of water, but the noodles sucked almost all of that up. It tasted like Nissin Demae Tonkotsu flavor noodles! Very strange stuff; it just seems wrong for it to be macaroni. It’s got some weird charm to it. I’m giving it 3.5 out of 5.0 stars – its good and weird.

Like these noodles? Hate them? Let everyone know with a comment!
