Kenko Foods Genmai Ramen – Japan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat but guessing it has fish. To prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook 2~3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block. You can see little dark flecks throughout from the rice.
The powder base sachet.
A fluffy concoction.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts, spring onion, narutomaki, corn and shichimi togarashi. I didn’t expect to enjoy these noodles as much I did, to be honest. They’re very hearty and chewy which is a big plus in my book. The broth was pretty good – Kind of a miso thing going on – not bad at all. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4973044020067.
