Here’s another one from ZenPop. Zenpop offers a wide variety of Japanese product boxes to your door – lots of stationary and ramen as well – check em out! Here’s what they had to say about this curry udon –

Udon in curry soup! Though curry has its origin in India, Japanese curry has followed its own unique path and now tastes quite differently compared to the original one. Pork based curry soup spiced up with soy sauce and bonito with delicious chewy noodles. A Japanese favorite!

If you’ve been following my reviews for a while, you know that I have a special place in my heart for curries of all stripes. Let’s have a look at this curry udon!

Looks to be mostly pork and some other bits.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, egg, kamaboko, barbecue pork, and spring onion. The udon came out nice and plump. Very thick and just what I expected – and enjoyable! The broth is extremely thick and has a salty curry flavor. I could’ve handled a little lighter on the saltiness. The included bits of meat were pretty good and the included kamaboko was about standard as you can get. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990333054.
