#1626: Nissin Gonbuto Kitsune Udon

This is another of the Gonbuto bowls. Nissin Gonbuto Kitsune Udon has a unique preparation regime which was quite hard to figure out – I figured it out after a lot of research (to be honest, I read the side numbers). Let’s have a look at this Nissin Gonbuto Kitsune Udon bowl!

The fresh udon pouch.

The soup base sachet.

Lots of powder.

The garnish sachet.

Lots of little bits.

Fried tofu!


Finished (click image to enlarge). The udon came out just right – standard fresh pouch gauge and chew. The broth has a soy and fish flavor to it which was kind of ho hum to me but not bad. The fried tofu was way too sweet for my liking, almost like a bread with syrup. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105216415.
