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:
Local ramen of Sano City in Tochigi Prefecture. The noodles that are made in Aotake are genuine. Famous ramen with many fans all over Japan. Noodle: Non-fried noodle that is smooth on the outside and chewy on the inside. Wide noodle. Soup: With a slow simmered chicken bone flavor as a base and added pork and savory herbs, the final taste is full of chicken oil and spices. Soup that is refreshing yet filled with meat and rich flavors. Ingredients: Roasted pork, bamboo shoots, green onion.
Sounds good on this cold day! Let’s check it out!

What have we here?
Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are slightly wide and flat. They have a strong chew and nice disposition; I liked them. The broth is very good – a hearty chicken and pork taste which fills the guttyworks with a satisfying feeling. The included pork and bamboo shoots worked very well and spring onion rounds out the bowl. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4903088004884.
