Here’s what they have to say about this one – “

Onomichi is a small city of 136,000 in Hiroshima prefecture known for it’s ancient temples. It is a hilly city southwestern coast of Honshu island, the main island of Japan.

This Ajihei ramen is characterized by it’s soy sauce (shoyu) based broth cooked with fish to imbue a unique but light seafood flavor to round out the broth. Although noodles in the region typically are wide and flat, Ajihei ramen sticks with a more traditional thin-medium noodle thickness to not over power a lighter shoyu based broth.”

Let’s have a look at this fancy premium variety from Japan!

Two servings of noodles.

Two servings of soup base.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, narutomaki, chashu, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, sesame seeds, nanami togarashi, and chili oil. The noodles are thin and quite nice – they’ve still got a backbone with a light kind of disposition at the same time which was nice. The broth is very rich and has a great oiliness to it. Impressive! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4972874209840.
