#2221: Nissin Cup Noodle Seafood Flavor

I know, I know… ‘You haven’t reviewed THIS one yet?!’ This was sent to me by a reader named Colin (thanks again!) and he got it at a specialty shop in Mexico. This is a really common Japanese Cup Noodle but I’ve never been able to get a hoold of it – until now. Let’s give it a look!

Some loose noodles, seasonings and seafood.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added kamaboko, narutomaki and spring onion. The noodles came out as expected – your standard thin, flat noodle with light chew. The broth has a nice and again light seafood flavor with a buttery and salty back to it. The inclusion of cabbage, scrambled egg, crabstick, clam and other bits really worked with the broth and I was definitely surprised how much I really enjoyed this one. Excellent Cup Noodle! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 49698633.
