Here’s another one from Zenpop.JP. Zenpop offers a lot of diverse Japanese boxes – lots of assorted things like ramen and also stationary among other things. Here’s what they have to say about this variety –
‘Hokkaido has lots of regional ramen varieties in its vast land, including shrimp miso ramen. The flavor of shrimp is strong but mingles well with the taste of miso. If you’re a shrimp person, you’ll be slurping down the soup after all the noodles are gone! This one is perfect for winter.’
Alrighty then – time for some winter slurping! Let’s give it a try.

The broth was pretty darn hard to complain about – a very nice balance of miso and a sweet shrimp flavor. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071278892.
