#3394: Nissin Top Ramen Soy Sauce Bowl – United States

#3394: Nissin Top Ramen Soy Sauce Bowl - United States

This is the third and final variety of the new Top Ramen bowls – Soy Sauce. Originally called oriental flavor, Nissin decided to change it over to soy sauce flavor. It’s kind of interesting; I’ve been to Asia a handful of times and seen the term oriental all over the place, however here in the states I’ve heard of some discontent with the term, possibly the impetus for this change. Anyways, let’s give this one a try!

The noodle block.

The dry vegetables sachet.

Dry soup base powder.

A wet sachet of sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, shichimi, sesame seed, chashu. The noodles had a nice firmness to them I didn’t expect for something coming out of the microwave and I appreciated that. The broth didn’t strike me as a soy sauce (shoyu) style so much – it had a very strong mushroom taste to it. Granted, it’s Vegetarian, but still. Included vegetables were carrots as well as others. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662026014.
