Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Sapporo Ichiban Japanese Style Noodles & Beef Flavored Soup

Beef flavor isn’t usually something I think of when I think about ramen. I generally think of pork, chicken, fish, seaweed, etc. Beef leads me more towards ramyun to be honest. But these are varieties catering to the taste of the United States – and beef is definitely a western kind of flavor as well. Let’s see how a beef noodle goes in this variety. Looks like I did a re-review ion 2017 and the first time I reviewed it was #205 in 2010! Okay – let’s get to it!

Smells beefy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added thin sliced roast Angus beef, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, cilantro, and hard boiled egg. Noodles have a nice thickness to them as always – it’s like they get engorged on the broth but maintain their character. The beef flavor is simply superb – I’m going to say as far as just being a beef instant noodle, these are definitely among my favorites. 4.25 out of 5,.0 stars. UPC bar code 076186000035.
