Here’s what he has to say about this one – ‘The expectations are high…and this instant ramen delivers. We’d expect nothing less from Iida Shoten. This is probably the best example of a shoyu (soy sauce) based, chicken-forward ramen in the instant ramen world. It is AMAZING. ‘

Interesting! Let’s cook it up!

The noodle block.

A large liquid base sachet.

A smaller liquid sachet.

A slice of chashu and vegetables.

A slice of nori (seaweed).

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, chashu, narutomaki, spring onion,. Noodle in this are just perfect – gauge and chewiness on point. The broth is very full – chicken and soy sauce notes and the oiliness for days – rich and serious. The chashu that was included was absolytely the best that’s come with an instant I’ve had – chewy and kind of sweet. All in all, I agree – the best ‘chicken forward’ shoyu I’ve had. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990371650.
