Just finishing up packing for our move. By the time this one’s posted though, it’ll all be done (I’ve been doing a couple reviews every day. One thing that’ll be vexing about the move is the fact that the Internet won’t be up until a few days after we’re there. Gonna be tough to get posts out but rest assured, I will! Today I’m reviewing this Mitoku variety from Japan. It looks to be packaged for sale here in the USA – you can really tell by the bar code being 12 as opposed to 13 digits, as well as the distributor. I don’t know much of anything about this one, so I guess we’ll see how brown rice noodles compare shortly. Let’s check out these Mitoku noodles!
Detail of the front of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 2 1/4 cups boiling water and cook 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in contents of soup base sachet and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has almost a chocolate scent to it.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sliced green onion. The noodles are alright; they have a slight crumble as well as a little mushy. The broth was definitely not to my liking. It was very earthy and unpleasantly bitter. 0.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 021009882039.
