Here’s one that came in a Zenpop.jp box – use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a groovy discount!
Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Ready for something new and original to celebrate Koinobori? Children will love it for sure! Toyo Suisan’s Curry Nanban Soba comes with a
fragrant Japanese-style soup with a distinctive Japanese curry taste. It’s very smooth, and has a hint of spice, but rest assured, it’s only enough to tingle your tongue. The dish is served with deep-fried tofu (お あげ) and kamaboko (蒲鉾), seasoned pork and green onions. The chewyness of the soba paired with the umami of the pork, and the refreshing bitterness of the green onions combined with the Japanese style soup and curry flavor make this a truly outstanding cup of noodles!’
I like curry, so hopefully I like this. Bring it on.
