Sure enough, it smells like miso.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, corn and soft boiled egg with a dash of nanami togarashi. The noodles hydrated nicely and were of good quality. The broth was definitely miso, but it was a little boring to be honest. I kind of wanted a little something more. Not bad, but room for improvement. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4974434902529.

A kind of fluffy powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, chashu pork, sesame seeds, spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodle was alright – not something to write home about but doable. The broth though was a little on the stronger funky soy saucy side of the spectrum – not keen on that. I did however like the ample included sesame seeds – was a nice touch. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.   JAN bar code 4974434902543.
