Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Sounds like it contains seafood. To prepare, add in sachet contents and fill to line with boiling water. Cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block – thin noodles!

A dry base sachet.

Little bits including flower fu!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, sesame seed, and shichimi. Noodles are thin with a kind of off texture – very dry. The broth was a game over for me. A combination of fish and yuzu just did not work to the point of finding it disgusting. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105263853.
