Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft boiled egg, spring onion, chashu pork, sesame seeds, shichimi togarashi and Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts. The noodles were good – nice gauge and chew and hydrated well. The broth had a very good shio flavor and a nice bit of scallop and seafood taste as well. Included garnish was comprised of wonderful cabbage and little fishcakes with character images on them which was nice. Very good! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902881400893.
