Here’s one that came in a Zenpop.jp box – use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a groovy discount!
They had this to say about it – ‘It’s time to get familiar with koji. Barley kōji (⻨麹) or rice kōji (⽶麹) are made by fermenting the grains with Aspergillus Oryzae Hyphae. And
that’s the magic ingredient used in your Noodle God’s (麵神, megami) cup of delicious shoyu ramen. Myojo foods wanted to challenge the conventional wisdom that “thick
instant noodles have a rough texture”. That’s what the Megami series is all about. Make thick noodles taste awesome. The salted koji was kneaded into ultra-thick noodles to improve the
taste. The rich scented soy sauce soup (shoyu, しょう油) combined with pork has excellent combination with the noodles. This cup comes with a lot of cabbage, char siu (チャーシュー), processed back fat, bean sprouts (moyashi, もやし), and green onions.’
Well, this sounds very fancy. Let’s give it a shot!
