#4370:" Nissin Men Shokunin Yuzu Shio Ramen - Japan

Here’s an interesting one from Japan found in a Zenpop box – check out zenpop.jp and use the coupon code RAMENRATER for a discount!

Here’s what they had to say – ‘Nissin’s Menshokunin (麺職人) series is always fun to eat. Especially when they decorate their packaging with beautiful hanabi (花火, fireworks). The concept of those noodles is simple: make them yourself. For the summer months, we’ve selected a delicious yuzu shio (柚子しお) flavor that is both, tasty and refreshing. This newly released product replaced the traditional vegetable flavors by yuzu, a fresh citrus fruit popular in Summer. The portion is very generous, and a detail that makes it stand out, is the deliciousness of chicken oil! The yuzu soup, which has a refreshing aroma of yuzu and a rich flavor of seafood, goes well with the non-fried whole grain noodle. Topped with eggs and green onions, it’s a dish that remains simple, yet
packs a punch of flavors!’

Okay so I like shio ramen, but really not a big yuzu fan. I guess we shall see – everything other than the mention of yuzu sounds good. Time to try.

A liquid base sachet.

A sachet of solid ingredients.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken, sesame seed, shichimi, mung bean sprout, and spring onion. Excellent noodle – premium and great chew. Aside from that, the combo of smoked fish and citrus just isn’t what makes me feel anything warm or happy. Not my bag. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105262597.
