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 – ‘Ramen with local ingredients are always the best kind of ramen. And this time, we’re heading to Toyama (富⼭) prefecture, on the Sea of Japan
coastline. Toyama Bay White Shrimp (⽩エビ, shiroebi), which is called the Jewel of Toyama Bay, is used as a special ingredient for this cup. This salt ramen is made with a rich soup based on chicken and pork, and fragrant white shrimp powder from Toyama Bay, allowing you to fully enjoy the taste and flavor of the Sea of Japan. The Ippin Sozai Series is an original brand that uses the best local ingredients and makes the most of their characteristics. To match with the pleasant seafood flavors, they have garnished the medium thin noodles with spring onions, kogashi green onions and string chillies.’
I’ve seen these special shrimp used in other varieties – they’re particularly proud when they use these. Sounds good – let’s give it a try!

The noodle block.
A sachet of liquid base.
A sachet of dry ingredients.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, narutomaki, shichimi, chashu, mung bean sprout, sesame seed, and spring onion. Noodles themselves came out pretty well – thinnish gauge on them. The broth was a rich prawn sweetness hit and a lot of saltiness. Sadly, the opposing forces kind of knocked out that prawn flavor and it traveled primarily by olfactory means. I prefer a prawn sweetness to ensconce the palate instead of toy with it. Included vegetables were very nice. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901677190208.
