#2905: Sapporo Ichiban CupStar Hokkaido Potato Miso Ramen

Here’s another neat one from Zenpop.JP. Thank you! So Zenpop has all sorts of monthly boxes including ramen boxes. Nine instant ramen in one box for a good price – check ’em out! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘thanks to its fertile land, Hokkaido produces a wide variety of foods, and this ramen includes potato that grew in the rich land. The soup is seasoned with Red Miso, which has a strong taste and dark red color. You’ll be surprised to find how potato tastes in a great miso soup.’

Alright! Let’s give it a try!

Loose ingredient from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles hydrated well enough and weren’t soggy or spongy. The broth had a definite miso taste to it which was pretty good. Lots of garnish here which of course is really welcome, but potato isn’t exactly what I found to be a great pairing. Interesting but kind of meh. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901734033608.
