Here’s another neat one from Zenpop.JP. Thank you! So Zenpop has all sorts of monthly boxes including ramen boxes. Nine instant ramen in one box for a good price – check ’em out! Here’s what they had to say about this one –
Kitsune means ‘fox’ in Japanese and Kitsune soba is topped with fried tofu, which according to folklore, fox spirits are fond of. Since this product is made to sell in the Kanto area, where Tokyo in included, the soup has a stronger flavor of shoyu compared to the Kansai one.
sounds good to me – let’s crack it open
Maruchan Kitsune Soba – Japan

The noodle block.
Loose bits from the bowl.
The soup base sachet.
Lots of powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and shichimi togarashi. Noodles had a kind of chew that seemed like they would do so much better dry than in soup. The broth was so salty and strong that it was just kind of gross to me. The saving grace of the kitsune was the only thing keeping this from the stripey hole. 0.25 out of 5.0 stars.
