Here’s one sent by Javier over at Box From Japan. Box From Japan is a monthly subscription service where you can get boxes of neat Japanese instant ramen or boxes of candy and they have other special ones as well! Definitely, give them a look!

So this variety is sour and spicy – and the sour comes from black vinegar. Black vinegar adds a kind of tangy tartness which I find a really neat condiment and works really well in noodle varieties I’ve tried. Let’s check out this bowl Chukazanmai!

Freeze dried ingredients that really spring to life when added to boiling water. Usually vegetables and meats.

Black vinegar.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Chinese sausage, and spring onion. The noodles have a strong chew and good backbone – a good reason to call this one premium. The broth has a nice balance of sweetness, sour tanginess from black vinegar, and an underlying afterthought kind of spiciness from Sichuan pepper. Very interesting and quite good. The inclusion of the freeze-dried block that expands with a nice variety of vegetables rounds out the bowl. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902881421386.
