Wow a noodle review on Thanksgiving? Yeah – although I did it yesterday and scheduled it to auto-post… Rest assured as you read this I’m probably helping make Thanksgiving dinner up at my mom’s. Sesame ramen eh? I bet turkey would go good with it… I’ll do some kind of turkey recipe soon. Let’s check this one out.
Here’s the distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.
The back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, put the contents of the seasoning sachets in a bowl and set aside. Boil 500ml water and add noodle block. Cook for 3 minutes. Pour liquid into bowl and stir then add noodles.

Has a strong but not overbearing sesame scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg. The noodles are very good – the gauge on these is just slightly bigger than your baseline standard instant. Very nice chew. The broth is excellent – has a great sesame taste and doesn’t seem like they went overboard on sesame oil; it’s just right. The sesame seeds are a nice finishing touch. Very much enjoyed this; reminds me of how I felt after my first bowl of Sapporo Ichiban Shio. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. Happy Thanksgiving! UPC bar code 4901734002642.
An exceedingly happy Sapporo Ichiban commercial.
