Here’s one I got from ZenPop, a company that’s producing ramen boxes in Japan. They have a new box every month with 9 different varieties for $29.50 – a pretty impressive deal as they include the shipping in the price.

Here’s how they describe this variety: ‘This miso based soup is spiced up with cilantro. It’s hot and spicy, but is absolutely savory! Don’t forget to keep a towel and a cup of water at hand. You’ll be dripping in sweat and get thirsty!’

Alrighty them – let’s give this a look!

A deep colored oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles were of a standard gauge although straighter than most if that makes sense. The broth was really interesting. Juxtaposed with a strong cilantro (coriander) flavor throughout was this spiciness – Sichuan pepper. It really was the last thing I would have expected from a Japanese instant noodle yet there it was. Very curious and interesting – they just keep coming up with more and more new flavors. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071239251.
