The noodle block.

A dry sachet of soup base.

A disc of tempura.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, narutomaki, and sesame seed. Noodles were chewy and addictive. Broth had a sweetness but wasn’t overwhelming. Tempura added very nice texture and flavor. Didn’t expect to like this one much at all. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990368308.
