Here’s an interesting one from Japan found in a Zenpop box – check out zenpop.jp and use the coupon code RAMENRATER for a discount!
Here’s what they had to say – ‘The Cup Noodle Big, is the large version of the classic Cup Noodle. It was first released in 1991 and is really popular in Japan. To end the year with a bang, we went straight for the Gyoza-flavored cup; because having ramen together with Gyoza is one of the best flavor combination possible! When you take a sip of the “gravy gyoza-style soup” with the flavor of garlic and Chinese chives, you’ll really taste the umami of the meat. In addition to some delicious meat, the soup is topped with cabbage and chives, which are familiar gyoza ingredients. To make the experience complete, use the Gyoza sauce just before eating, and not right after adding the water, and add yourself a bowl of rice!’
This sounds interesting – cracking open the lid emitted a nice scent! Let’s check out this big cup!

Lookse bits and seasoning from the cup.
A liquid sachet from the lid.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added sesame seed and spring onion. This was one of my favorite cup noodle varieties thus far. The noodle was a tad more stalwart for starters. The broth was savory and the bits of meat throughout worked very well. Quite good, really. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105277713.
