Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘This ramen features a bright shio (salt) seasoning and a beautiful chicken soup! It’s similar to bowls at famous Tokyo ramen shops like “Menya Syo” or “Daiki”. A punchy salt seasoning and warm chicken flavor are the centerpieces. But the yuzu kosho (citrus chili paste) packet adds an extra layer of zesty sweetness. Enjoy the chicken meatball toppings – there are a lot of them!

Everything from @5amramen has been awesome  thus far – let’s see about this one!
