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 – ‘In this cup, the filling, medium-thick noodles, are prepared with a fair amount of garlic powder, soy sauce broth with pork, savory vegetables, and pepper, and soy-based fried bean curd that soaks up the fat. This soy sauce ramen packs a triple punch of dark flavor. It’s a modern version of a good old classic recipe, serving a healthy portion of satisfaction with its friend chicken (からあげ). Myojo is a company that was started back in 1950 in a small back alley and was commissioned to produce dried noodles. They’ve been involved in the technological development of the industry ever since and created some of the best noodles on the market. The series Ippei-chan was released in 1993.’
This should be interesting as I’ve only tried Ippei-chan yakisoba variants and never a cup like this. Let’s change that.

Seasoning and bits from the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, narutomaki, mung bean sprout, spring onion, shichimi, and sesame seed. The noodle is great – a little extra thick. Broth is quite tasty – not incredibly thick but tasty. The star of the show are these little fried chicken pieces – they’re awesome. It’s like bits of fried chicken in there and despite my reservations, it worked so well with shoyu. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902881453585.
