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 – ‘A noodle cup with extra noodles, all we’ve been asking for! 年明けうど ん, or New Year Udon is a tradition from the Sanuki province, in Shikoku.
To celebrate the occasion, they increased the amount of noodles in this cup by 10%. Nissin prides itself on sourcing some of the freshest ingredients, and they did so again with this Kyoto-style udon (うどん). This cup noodle is a convenient way to enjoy the quality of our ingredients! Straight udon noodles with a smooth texture. The soup is made with 100% rishiri kelp (利尻昆布) and soy sauce with a hint of sansho (⼭椒, Japanese pepper). Now, the highlight remains the Kyoto-style deep-fried fish paste. These noodles have a fantastic texture and are true to the taste of Kyoto udon. Savor them while you have some!’

I’m going into this with an open mind. Let’s try it.

The noodle block.

Loose seasoning and bits from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shichimi, mung bean sprouts, spring onion and sesame seed. The noodle in this one wasn’t half bad. The broth wasn’t half bad either. The pieces of fried tofu weren’t half bad. However, it wasn’t half wonderful, either. It was pretty underwhelming. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105258330.
