Here’s another one I got from a box I wasn’t expecting a while back. This is part of that box which was sent by the Itomen distributor in Taiwan – thank you again! Not sure how they got a hold of my address, but they did and sent me noodles so that’s pretty nice of them. This variety is Bansyu Ramen which they explain as, “Soy sauce and Salt from Banyu. Bansyu is famous for its soy sauce and Salt in Japan since 17th century).” Let’s give it a try!
Itomen Bansyu Ramen – Japan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Probably contains pork but unsure – check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

A liquid base sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, spring onion, nanami togarashi, and soft boiled egg. The noodles were just about as happy as an instant can be – medium soft gauge with a great mouthfeel. The broth was just wonderful – a sweetness in there which just was so good. I didn’t want to stop eating these – 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901104131538.
Watch me mess with Egglettes and cook this one up. These short lived live streams were the precursor to the Instant Noodle Recipe Time series.
