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 – ‘Tokyo-style Chinese soba noodles with scallops, clams, and a shellfish broth. The savory flavors of scallops, chicken, and potherbs go well with the soft noodles. Paired with char siu and bamboo shoots, it’s a perfect winter comfort food. You may be wondering now, what’s Tokyo-style (東京) Chinese soba, and I’d say, it’s a very good question. Commonly known as chuka soba (中華そば), this version uses shellfish broth (貝だし) instead of the traditional one, together with soy sauce! That makes for a very, very rich broth.’
It’s an interesting one today as this totally looks like a shoyu. Hmm. Let’s give it a try!

The noodle block.
Dry soup base.
Chashu and vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, spring onion, mung bean sprouts, narutomaki, sesame seed, crushed red pepper, and chashu. Noodle was on the ho hum side of things. Broth honestly just seemed like a shoyu with a little different kind of thing going on. The provided chashu was like a slice of ham the size of a slice of pepperoni. Not bad. . 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.
