They had this to say about it -For their brand Maruchan (マルちゃん), Toyo Suisan always uses the best noodles. Especially for their QTTA series, for which they have a
special type of noodles for each flavor. In this Cheese Cream Flavor, the noodles are fried in oil and finished with a smooth and soft texture with their proprietary manufacturing method.
The umami of lard exudes from the noodles and is a match for the creamy soup. It comes with a little pork and chicken, and a dominant garlic & cheese flavor. Want to give it a French touch? Try it with a side of freshly baked bread! Now you’re wondering: what’s umami? I’ve used this word again and again. It’s simple: umami (うま味), can be translated as “pleasant savory taste”! ‘
Interesting stuff – let’s check it out!

The noodle block..
Loose seasoning from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, scallion. and spring onion. Noodles were alright. The little bits of mince were tasty. The thing I couldn’t stomach was the buttery flavor that was offered was such a fake butter taste; like movie theatre popcorn flavor. It was just over the top. I was hoever miffed that my wife really loved this one and enjoyed over half of it. Go figure; opposites attract! 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901990369862.
