Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated well and were of the good standard quality of Japanese Cup Noodle – flat, soft, lots of noodles. The broth was a rich creamy one with a beef kind of taste to it. As for the garlic taste, I found it kind of absent and the egg yolk must have been part of the thickener for the broth. The garnish bits were nice – Jew’s ear mushroom, bell pepper and bits of meat were abundant. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105236390.
