A sachet of seaweed.
Crispy and tasty stuff.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, kizami shoga and chashu pork. The noodles are of a thinner gauge with a very strong backbone. Round and chewy, they exude that nice almost flour-y essence onto the palate. The broth is shoyu through and through – pleasant and smooth. The included vegetables were very satisfying – the seaweed a great touch and the nice big slice of narutomaki very good. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105041826.
