Once in a while, I get something a little different – something that contains something I’ve not seen before. This is one of those times. So it was kind of difficult to translate this one – it’s basically salt Butter and Corn flavor, although the translation I ended up with didn’t mention the corn. I decided to go ahead and add corn in the title anyways. Also, I saw lots of translations mention the word circle, although I’m not sure if that was just Google translate being weird.Anyways, this is a big bowl of noodles and I’m very curious to try them. Without any further adieu, let’s open this thing up and look inside!
Here’s the import/distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge).
Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). I’m guessing this one contains meat and/or fish. To prepare, add vegetables sachet, soup base sachet, and boiling water to fill line and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and top with contents of smallest sachet and enjoy!

The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A lot of powdery seasoning.
A vegetable sachet.
Mostly spring onion.
Dehydrated corn from the bottom of the bowl – a lot of it!
A very small, thick sachet.
Nope – never seen this before. A little dehydrated pat of butter. Not exactly sure if it is butter as I’d think real butter would go bad, but it looks and smells like butter.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added narutomaki and spring onion. The noodles have quite nice feel to them even though they’re not a pack version. They’re comfortable. The broth is a creamy affair with a nice corn flavor to it and corn all over the place (I has thought about adding some more corn, but the sheer amount of corn in this bowl was absolutely wonderful). The butter? Adds a bit of extra creaminess and luxuriance to it. I find it reminiscent of Maruchan USA’s Creamy Chicken ramen, which is one of my favorites. This is very good. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – a real winner. JAN bar code 4901990330688.
Here’s another Maruchan product – looks to be a shio flavored yakisoba.
