#791: Acecook Super Big Ramen Tonkotsu Flavor Japanese Style Instant Noodle

Here’s one I got a while ago at Uwajimaya in Seattle. It’s big, Japanese and tonkotsu flavor – sounds much better than the last one I had!

Here’s the side panel stuff – click to enlarge.

The noodle block. Looks really nice, I think.

Only one seasoning packet, but it’s really big.

I put most of the packet in this little sake cup – it would not all fit.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies, some chicken lunch meat, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), a hard-boiled egg marinated in Kikkoman soy sauce, some Ajishima Kimchi furikake, some Sushinori (seaweed) and finally a couple shakes of Tabasco Buffalo Style hot sauce. The noodles: not bad – a nice texture and quality to them. The broth however is way too salty for me – so much so I couldn’t handle it. I was really shocked at that but oh well. Bummed. 1.0 out of 5.0 – the noodles were good, at least. UPC bar code 074410396718 – get it here.

I bet this stuff is really really good!

Mr. Noodles and a meat tenderizer. This is bizarre.

    I prefer another brand of tonkotsu flavor instant ramen, but I found a store selling the Super Big Ramen for just 99¢, so I bought a couple of cases. I would prefer the noodles to be more firm, and the broth is just okay (I add more water to make it less salty, if more thin), but I can forgive the quality given the low price I paid..

    I just ate one of these. It was salty, but I was pleasantly surprised overall (except that the whole thing was white, which isn’t a very pretty food color). I added some re hydrated mushrooms, and those may have helped take down some of the salt level.

    this is one of my favorite ramen, it is rich and creamy. I love the sesame in the bowl. It is not that salty for me, recommended
