So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety -“If you like the taste of sesame, you will love this ramen. Darker than traditional soy sauce ramen, it provides a savory aromatic taste that will make your mouth water as you’re waiting for it to cook. Get your taste buds ready!”
Well, my taste buds are officially ready. Let’s give it a try!
San-Iku Gomaaji Ramen – Japan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat – check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles in 500ml water for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A kind of fluffy powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, chashu pork, sesame seeds, spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodle was alright – not something to write home about but doable. The broth though was a little on the stronger funky soy saucy side of the spectrum – not keen on that. I did however like the ample included sesame seeds – was a nice touch. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.
