Okay so you might be wondering – mayo ramen – that couldn’t possibly mean… Yes. Where did I get it though?
This is Shinichi. In the intro to the Bottom Ten List video, he was kind enough to do the narration. I thought he resided in Osaka, Japan, but he’s currently in the Seattle area going to college! We decided we should meet up at The Ramen Rater WHQ and talk about noodles. He’s working with Mr., Yamato of Yakantei in an attempt to educate people about instant noodles from very localized regions of Japan – I’ll let you know a lot more about it soon. He brought me some really different varieties of instant noodles over, one of them was this one. To answer the question, yes – it’s mayonnaise flavor! Let’s check this one out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. to prepare, boil 550ml water and cook noodle block for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir – cook another 1.5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a nice scent with pork notes.
A second sachet.
This smells like mayonnaise for sure!
A solid ingredients sachet.
A very nice assortment of what looks to be crab stick, corn, cabbage and other bits.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added pork, spring onion, mung bean sprout and hard boiled egg. The noodles were extremely good – excellent quality and chew to them. Quite a lot of them as well. The broth was really intriguing; indeed, it has the flavor of mayonnaise, but also I get a pork kind of flavor as well; like a creamy mayo pork. It works very well! The added bits hydrated very well and were of great diversity and quality – corn and crab stick among them. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4543185001975.
