Here’s one that came by way of Japan Crate’s Umai Crate – thanks! You can get nice boxes of instant noodles all the way from Japan to your door every month – check em out! Here’s what they had to say about these in the pamphlet that comes with the box:
This slightly sweet noodle soup dish offers you the at home opportunity to make something that you’d find at Nagoya station in Japan. Flavored by bonito, short for Katsuobushi (dried, fermented and smoked tuna), these noodles pack an interesting punch of flavor in your mouth.
Hey nothing like a nice flavorful punch in the mouth! Let’s take a look!
Sugakiya Nagoya Kishimen – Japan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add noodle to boiling water and cook a minute after water has returned to a boil. In a separate pot, boil 250ml water and add in soup base sachet contents. Drain noodle and add to bowl, then add soup. Finally, top with dry mixture and enjoy!
The noodle pouch.
Dry soup base.
A fine powder.
A dry vegetable sachet.
Looks to be mostly katsuobushi.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added narutomaki, tofu puff, spring onion and shichimi togarashi. The noodles are quite good – extra wide and nice and thick. The broth has that sweet taste, however it isn’t overly fishy like so many bonito udons are. The bonito was very tasty and went well. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901677003522.
