#1631: Nissin Donbei Tempura Soba Mini

It might be hard to tell from this image, but this is a very small bowl from Nissin’s Donbei line. I’d say it’s about 1/3 the size of a normal bowl. Kinda cool – a mini bowl! Let’s have a look.

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains egg and seafood. To prepare, remove tempura disk and empty sachet into bowl. Add 190ml boiling water and re-cover for 3 minutes. Stir. Garnish with tempura disk and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a kind of sweet scent to it.

The tempura disk!


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added spring onion. The noodles are really great – great chewiness, great texture. The broth compliments them nicely – a salty and sweet affair. The tempura adds a crispy treat of it’s own and it quite nice when it soaks up broth as well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 49698527.
