So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety -“This is another ramen from the Umakaro series! This one is a classic green onion ramen with a distinct shrimp flavor.”

It’s nice – they have recommendations for garnishes and this one mentions adding bacon. I have an idea for a bit of a spin on bacon I’m hoping might work well. Let’s delve into this bowl!

Looks like spring onion.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added a slice of chashu pork I slowly fried as I was devoid of bacon, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and nanami togarashi. Noodles were pretty good – not colossal but decent. The broth had this kind of vegetable taste to it I liked – a bit of spring onion taste in there but not overpowering. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4979397770130.
