Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Sapporo Ichiban Shio Ramen Japanese Style Noodles

Hey cool! I’ve been really looking forward to reviewing this one. You might not know, but this is the background for The Ramen Rater logo! It was review #652 – posted February 1, 2012. Six years ago! I really liked how the picture came out and thought hey – let’s make a new logo! But only recently have I said what the background was – didn’t think anyone would be interested. Anyways, now you know! Here’s a little about Shio ramen from Wikipedia –

Shio (“salt”) ramen is a pale, clear, yellowish broth made with plenty of salt and any combination of chicken, vegetables, fish, and seaweed. Occasionally pork bones are also used, but they are not boiled as long as they are for tonkotsu ramen, so the soup remains light and clear. Chāshū is sometimes swapped for lean chicken meatballs, and pickled plums and kamaboko (a slice of processed fish roll sometimes served as a frilly white circle with a pink or red spiral called narutomaki) are popular toppings as well. Noodle texture and thickness varies among shio ramen, but they are usually straight rather than curly.

Something else you may not know is that my wife absolutely loves this one. There aren’t a lot of varieties that my wife really, really likes – but this is one of them. Let’s open this one up!

Sesame seeds!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken with Salt For Life and pepper, spring onion, hard boiled egg and Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts. The noodles worked just right as always – nice tooth and gauge. The broth is a nice shio – kind of a chicken shio – it is very tasty and giving. Really like this stuff! 5.0 out of 5.,0 stars.
