These folks make some really great ramen – I’ve tried quite a few varieties from this range – let’s check out their shoyu!
Sakurai Foods Vegetarian Shoyu Ramen – Japan
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodle block in 500ml water for 2~3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A sachet of soup base.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, mung bean sprouts, spring onion, La-Yu chili oil, narutomaki, and sesame seed. Noodle was nice – good gauge and slippery mouthfeel. The broth was a subtle shoyu – not too strong, not too weak. The broth was augmented with sesame seeds and kind of had a sesame hit to it which worked well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4960813312911.
