Found this one up at Osaka market at Yaohan Centre in Richmond, B C. I’ve always been a fan of Chikin ramen – it quite literally was the second instant noodle I tried as a kid. I’ve never had it like this, though! So this is an instant rice, but it has chikin ramen flavor. Let’s take a look at this crossover.

Finished (click to enlarge). This didn’t come out as I expected whatsoever. I expected a cup of fluffy rice and a nice flavoring and bits here and there. This was more along the lines of a rice soup – rice in a Chikin Ramen broth. While not bad, not my favorite. The rice was a little flat – seemed like it should have hydrated further. The broth had that nice Chikin Ramen taste which I enjoyed. The included bits were throughout and hydrated well;. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105945568.
Looks like a spicy one – definitely need to give this a shot
