Once you get outside the United States, cilantro is known as coriander. This is actually the second coriander variety I’ll be trying from Japan. Didn’t expect that to be a popular flavor for Japan, but hey, why not. I really like coriander. This one comes from Zenpop.jp. They have monthly ramen boxes that are a really great deal – definitely, check them out! Okay – let’s crack this one open.

The noodle block.
Loose garnish and seasoning from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out quite nicely – gauge and chew are on point in this cup. The broth has a very nice chicken and coriander taste to it – really enjoyable and rich. The bits of cabbage, coriander, and chicken round out the scene. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901734031468.
