Here’s what they had to say about it -To start off this wonderful summer ramen pack, we’ve gotten you some local Osaka Kasu Yakisoba. Those yakisoba (焼そば) are made with flour sauce from the local Daikokuya restaurant! You’ll notice the Tsutenkaku tower, one of Osaka’s landmarks, on top of the packaging. The tower is in an area full of old and traditional restaurants! This is the first soupless cup yakisoba is available in the “Osaka Kasumi Series” using KASUYA’s “Oil Kasumi”! The noodles are of medium thickness and come with soy sauce mixed to them, and the savory flavor of lard remains. The sauce boasts taste just like it was invented for this dish. Although originally used with classic flour dishes such as okonomiyaki, yakisoba, takoyaki, and grilled squid, it also goes perfectly with fried noodles. For this Osaka Kasu Yakisoba, they’ve slightly changed it, and spiced it up!’
Tsutenkaku Tower. I wondered what that was. Never heard of it before. I really need to visit Japan and go to some key places.

The noodle block.
A sachet of liquid sauce.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, Kewpie mayo, shichimi, sesame seed, soft egg, and spring onion. Noodle was pretty thick and had a nice chew. Flavor was like a sweet and soy beef which was interesting. Unfortunately, it was kind of gravy like in it’s saltiness and that wasn’t appealing. However, the amount of cabbage was very much appreciated. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4903088015651.
