#1125: Myojo Japanese Style Noodles Shio Flavor

Here’s another I got up at T&T Supermarket in Canada! Shio is one of four main categories of ramen in Japan (Tonkotsu, Shoyu and Miso being the others). Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about Shio:

Shio (“salt”) ramen is probably the oldest of the four and is a pale, clear, yellowish broth made with plenty of salt and any combination of chicken, vegetables, fish, and seaweed. Occasionally pork bones are also used, but they are not boiled as long as they are for tonkotsu ramen, so the soup remains light and clear. Chāshū is sometimes swapped for lean chicken meatballs, and pickled plums and kamaboko are popular toppings as well. Noodle texture and thickness varies among shio ramen, but they are usually straight rather than curly.

With that, let’s check out this fresh variety!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Chicken, wheat, egg and soybeans are listed in the ingredients.

Much like other fresh varieties, here is the little bag of noodles. You get three of these and three soup base packets.

One of the three soup base packets.

Has a nice color and rich scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken with Lindberg-Snider Red Baron BBQ Seasoning, hard boiled egg, Vidalia onion and green onion. The noodles are great – they come out fresh and have a perfect chewiness. The broth has a nice soy and salt flavor with a nice chicken element to it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 011152454184.

  1. Hello,

    I’m glad to hear you made it up to T&T in Vancouver. We corresponded briefly a while ago, I’m sorry I never ended up sending any noodles down to you. I was just at T&T last night and I bought a 5-pack of Wings Food Mie Sedaap Mi Goreng Perisa Asli on sale! I read your review of it, and now I’m excited to try it.

    I love any kind of Japanese Ramen. Motomachi Shokudo is my favorite restaurant for noodles out. They do a “burnt onion oil” that is incredible in their Shoyu ramen. I actually had tonkotsu ramen at the Richmond night market on Sunday, which was kind of amazing. They made a pretty decent ramen in what was basically a stall, using a hand-held torch to grill the pork. Not bad for street food. It’s such a great place to try out all kinds of interesting and yummy treats. I think you would enjoy it a lot. There’s actually two Richmond night markets, but I think the one near to the airport has better food selections. The markets are open during the summer on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Feel free to email me if you’re up here in Vancouver again. I would be delighted to show you around some of my favorite culinary destinations.
