Here’s one that came in a Zenpop box. Zenpop is a subscription box service – check em out and use coupon code RAMENRATER for a discount!
Here’s what they had to say about this one – “Maybe you’ve tried curry before, but this may be the first time to try soup curry. While they may sound similar, they are indeed two different dishes! Soup curry originated in 1971 in Sapporo, Hokkaido. It’s a very soupy curry with a spicy taste and lots of added ingredients, mainly various vegetables. Usually it’s a much bigger serving than normal curry dishes you’ll find in Japan. Warm up with Sapporo Ichiban’s soup curry topper with cabbage, fried eggplant, flavored minced chicken, and red bell pepper.”
Interesting – I was thinking this would be a beef one but nope – chicken! Let’s give it a try!

The noodle block.
Loose seasoning and bits from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, kamaboko, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, kizami nori, pepper flake, and sesame seed. The noodles are alright – soft and kinda meh. The broth was a thinner style curry but the flavor was there. Lots of eggplant in this one which worked well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901734038542.
