So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety -“Have a taste of a Japanese take on Sichuan style dry noodles! It takes this typically stir fried dish and transforms it into a delicious ramen. And as we have seen in the past, Kenko Foods has made this ramen with all natural ingredients and good health in mind.”
Interesting – alright, let’s take a look!
Kenko Foods Hot Dry Noodles – Japan

The noodle block.
A seasoning sachet.
A dry powder base.
A liquid base sachet.
A reddish liquid.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallion, hard boiled egg and shichimi togarashi. The noodle is soft but enjoyable as a sturdier one in that they are of good quality and work so well with the broth. Now, the broth neither seems spicy, nor to I get any kind of Sichuan taste. It actually reminds me of the taste and heat level of the Great Value spicy noodles I’ve found in Canada – meaning heat is non existent. Nonetheless, they’re tasty good. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Woot woot! Juggling in Japan!
