Here’s what they have to say about this one – ‘Released on June 14th: the newly developed “Mysterious Meat Karaage”. The chicken soup comes with a combo of three spices: garlic, ginger, and black pepper, and is accented with the refreshing sourness of lemon to create a taste that will keep you coming back for more. The mystery meat karaage has a juicy flavor that makes you feel like you are eating fried chicken like in the restaurant. And do you know where lies the mystery? The karaage flavoring is actually made of soy, giving an original twist to a classic dish! The other ingredients include cabbage, scrambled eggs, and green onions.’
Hey this sounds neat – I don’t often get to see these limited-run Japanese varieties. Very curious – let’s check it out!
Nissin Cup Noodle BIG Fried Chicken And Lemon – Japan
Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).
The noodle block.
Loose seasoning and bits from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken, sesame seed, black pepper, and spring onion. Honestly, I didn’t get the fried chicken and lemon aspect – until I tasted the little nuggest in there. Honestly, they and they alone tasted like fried chicken with lemon and that was just fascinating. Bits of potato were in there as well. It was one I did want to continue to eat. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
