Here’s one from an Umai Crate – a subscription box from Japan. Use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a discount if you’d like to get one! Here’s what they have to say about it – ‘There’s a saying in Japan that long noodles are good luck for a long life! These soba (buckwheat) noodles are extra long for that reason! They also come with tasty crispy tempura balls, seaweed and crunchy shrimp.’
This one is interesting since in a previous Umai Crate, there was one that looks almost identical, but only had the powder sachet where this one has the topping as well – a nice addition! Let’s check it out.
Itsuki Tempura Soba – Japan
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, boil noodle in 300ml water for 1 minute. Add in soup base and stir. Finally, top with garnish and enjoy!
The fresh soba noodles.
A dry soup base sachet.
The garnish sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added kamaboko, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and sesame seeds. The noodles are very good – soft and a good texture. The broth is my favorite tempura broth; not too sweet, not too fishy – just right on all fronts. The included garnish was particularly enjoyable with tempura at the forefront. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.
