Well looky what we got here! This was one of the new varieties sent by Ichiro Yamoto of Yakantei! So if you’re wondering what this is, it’s a special cup of noodles that includes a dehydrated hamburger patty. No joke! Let’s have a look at this one!
The side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains (you guessed it) beef.
The noodle block with some of the seasoning.
The dehydrated hamburger patty!
Some of the seasoning that was at the bottom of the cup. There was a lot of it!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some green onions. The noodles are of a nice quality – slightly crumbly though. The broth is good – very full of beefiness! I detect slight sweetness, almost like it has something like ketchup in there as well as an interesting tartness. The corn comes together nicely too. So the beef patty is pretty good – it wants to fall apart though. This isn’t any kind of negative though; more of a hint. I found that after I samples each component, I felt that mushing up the patty and evenly distributing the patty throughout the bowl was a must and thoroughly enjoyed it that way. This is something that could have been a poorly done novelty, but is done very well. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105217085.
Here’s a commercial for another version of the GooTa – would love to try this one – sure looks like this guy really likes it!
