#3435: Nissin Cup Noodle Smoky & Spicy Sio - Japan

Here’s one that was in a box from Zenpop. Their monthly boxes feature a slew of varieties from Japan – use coupon code RAMENRATER for a discount!

Sio (shio) is salt ramen. I’m really curious how a smoky and spicy taste will go in this one – not what I’m used to so that’s a plus. So many varieties from Japan – and always something new to try which boggles the mind after trying over 3,000 varieties. Let’s check it out!

The noodle block.

Loose bits and seasoning from the cup.

A wet sachet that was affixed to the lid.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chili flake, spring onion, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Noodles hydrated to about 85% of enjoyable. The flavor was just a confusing mess; kind of reminded me of an alfredo sauce pizza from a local joint. Just not my thing. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105250143.
