So cold noodles are generally for the summer months and this one’s no different – I just didn’t get to it in the summer months. In fact, I’m reviewing this in Novemberand the review should be coming out in early 2020, so that’s kind of weird I suppose but hey – I think nooles are good any time of year so doesn’t bother me. Let’s check ’em out!
Itsuki Chinese Lemon Cold Noodle – Japan
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it’s meat free or not – check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse is cold water. Add wet sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Two large wet sachets.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, sliced chashu, sesame seed, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and shichimi. The noodles have a good chew to them and gauge works here. I like how they get an extra little chew from their coldness. The broth/sauce is good – kind of a lemon and black vinegar affair. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901726013557.
