#1516: Men-Sunaoshi Miso Ramen

Been quite a while since I’ve had some miso ramen, and this will be only my second Sunaoshi review. This one was in my hamper asking to be reviewed today and so I thought why not give it some attention. Ready? Set? Miso.

Here’s the import/distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free according to this, but check for yourself.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add noodle to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, mung bean sprouts, sliced green onion and kamaboko. The noodles have a nice bounce to them – a standard gauge of an instant, but a nice quality nonetheless. The broth is a nice miso flavor. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 4973288830958.

Here’s a 12 pack of Sunaoshi Miso bowls!

#1200: Men-Sunaoshi Tonkotsu Ramen

Review #1200! Wow – only 800 to go to #2000! By the way if you’ve got a second, can you vote for The Ramen Rater in the Best of Western Washington contest? Trying to get first place in the food blog category! Here’s the link. So here’s an interesting one I picked up in Canada. Took a bit of figuring to tell what it was for sure – let’s check it out!

Here’s the distributor sticker (click image to enlarge). Says it contains ‘pork essence.’

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). 500cc water (about 2 cups) for 3 minutes is what it’s saying on there. Usually every instant tends to show the water number then the cooking time number.

The soup base powder. Smells pretty good.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little green onion. The noodles are light with a subtle chew. Reminds me of baseline instant noodles you’d find in the US but a little nicer. The broth is light in color and has a rich tonkotsu flavor. It’s got a nice skew on it which is very confort food like. I really liked it – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 4973288623239.
