Here’s what they had to say about this one – “This is a very special shoyu ramen because it has the added flavor of Maruhon sesame oil (the brand was founded in 1725). It has a soy sauce taste that combines pork and Chinese cabbage, shiitake mushrooms and oyster flavors . The rich flavor of sesame oil gives this dish a delicious and distinctive character.”
Cool – let’s check it out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Lao Gan Ma Spicy Chilli Crisp, sesame seed, shichimi, and spring onion. Noodles were quite nice – round in nature and a good backbone. The broth was a great back and forth of shoyu and sesame oil. The sesame component was particularly good and the company that makes the oil for this one was established in 1725. I guess they’ve had practive. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901734035817.
