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 – ‘Curry (カレー) noodles is the kind of comfort food that, well, comforts you at any time and in any situation. What’s even more comforting than a cup of noodles? A cup filled with noodles. Who likes half empty cups? Nobody. Nissin created this one by filling 80% of the cup’s volume with noodles and a delicious, light (あっさり) curry soup with seasoned pork, carrots and green onions. It’s all in the subtlety of the various ingredients that really come together to warm your stomach. Once you’ve started slurping, practice some Japanese by saying “Oishii” (おいしい), which means “delicious”!’

I’m very interested in this one – the original I’ve had many times, but this is different. Let’s check it out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, egg, narutomaki, sesame seed, spring onion, and mung bean sprout. The noodle is narrow and flat – very standard for Cup Noodle. Broth is a nice curry, abutted with a lot of potatoes. It’s interesting. Better than the original? Maybe a touch. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105252499.
