Meet The Manufacturer: #1996: Nissin Cup Noodle Pasta Style Tarako Spaghetti

This is the third one from this line that I’ve tried. I have had the vongole variety as well as the bolognese in the past – really liked that bolognese. This one is made with cod roe – basically cod eggs. It’s a very common addition over in Japan. Let’s give this a try.

A light seasoned oil.


Finished (click to enlarge). The five minutes of steeping were just perfect to make the noodles hydrate perfectly. They have an excellent gauge and chew. The flavor is an almost lemon-but-not-lemon acidity punch with a salty fish taste. I am assuming the tiny little specks throughout are indeed cod roe. It’s tasty and interesting. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105232569.
