#2214: Sapporo Ichiban Tabimen Nagasaki Chanpon

Here’s another one sent to me by Javier from Box From Japan. Box From Japan has subscriptions for all sorts of neat Japanese things. I regret to say that I was informed that they won’t be taking subscriptions for their ramen boxes for now – hopefully that will start again soon. He mentioned that you can purchase instant noodles from them here. Here’s what he had to say about this particular variety:

Noodles: smooth with a supple, chewy texture. The thin, crimped noodles mix well with the soup. Soup: eight varieties of miso are mixed together with fragrant herbs and shichimi togarashi (a Japanese red pepper spice mixture) to create a full-bodied soup. Toppings: The four vegetable toppings of roughly chopped bok choy, cabbage, corn, and carrots perfectly complement the soup. The freeze-drying process preserves the flavors of the raw ingredients.

Shall we? We shall!

Cabbage, bok choy, carrot and corn.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, fried garlic and shichimi togarashi. The noodles came out very nicely – thin gauge and unique mouthfeel to them. The broth was seriously miso – they weren’t kidding about the 4 different kinds of miso – I feel a little fermented myself after that! Was very tasty and strong miso. The supplied vegetables came out great and worked well. 4.25 out of 5.0  JAN bar code 4901734025351.
