#755: Meet The Manufacturer: Nongshim Japanese Style Udon Noodle Soup (Bowl)

Haven’t tried this one before, although seen it a few times at the store. Udon is a wider gauge noodle and usually when mentioned so prominently is of the fresh variety. Fresh in a non-refrigerated? You’ll understand in a minute.

Here’s a close up of the ingredients, nutritional info and directions (click image to enlarge).

Here’s what I’m talking about when I mention fresh noodles. These are not dry, although they’re not wet. They’re in a sealed bag.

Here’s the liquid soup base.

Has a nice and strong soy flavor.

Here’s the veggie packet.

This looks like a lively little assortment!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added two pieces of narutomaki (bet you can spot them). The noodles are your standard fresh udon I’ve sampled before – nice and chewy and wide. Good stuff. The broth is excellent – salty, lots of soy flavor and a nice seafood taste. The flake pack was great in this one – little pieces of kamaboko, tempura and seaweed. All in all a nice dish I rather liked. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146156917 – get it here.

Apparently there’s some kind of contest involving KPop band B2ST? Well, here’s one of the videos people have submitted.

Here’s another one.
