#1152: Sapporo Ichiban Tomato & Basil Shio Ramen

Check this big sucker out! This one was sent by a guy who runs a store in Japan called Yanaktei ( Kind of looks pizza minded eh? Let’s check it out!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains egg, pork and chicken.

Here’s the noodle block – note that there’s a lot of seasoning interspersed.

A ton of bits and pieces in this one!

A small liquid packet.

Looks to be like a tomato oil – has a very strong fresh tomato scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Sauteed some pork butt with a sprinkle of garlic salt for a few and then added Walla Walla sweet onion, green onion and bell pepper. Garnished with grape tomatoes. The noodles aren’t amazing; but they’re not bad either. They have a standard noodle cup texture. The broth is very nice – the tomato packet really punches home the tomato flavor – and it’s a real taste, but a ketchup smack. The bits and pieces are very nice too – scrambled egg, veggies and some meat round out nicely. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 4901734019503.
