#2799: Maruchan Kitsune Soba

#2799: Maruchan Kitsune Soba

Here’s another neat one from Zenpop.JP. Thank you! So Zenpop has all sorts of monthly boxes including ramen boxes. Nine instant ramen in one box for a good price – check ’em out! Here’s what they had to say about this one –

Kitsune means ‘fox’ in Japanese and Kitsune soba is topped with fried tofu, which according to folklore, fox spirits are fond of. Since this product is made to sell in the Kanto area, where Tokyo in included, the soup has a stronger flavor of shoyu compared to the Kansai one.

sounds good to me – let’s crack it open

Lots of powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and shichimi togarashi. Noodles had a kind of chew that seemed like they would do so much better dry than in soup. The broth was so salty and strong that it was just kind of gross to me. The saving grace of the kitsune was the only thing keeping this from the stripey hole. 0.25 out of 5.0 stars.

#1228: Maruchan Seimen Japanese Instant Noodles Shio Aji

Here’s one I got early this year the MBS TV station sent to me after I did the God Of Patena TV show! Thanks again – hope to be on again someday! Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains meat. To prepare, boil 500ml of water. Add the noodle block and cook for three minutes. In a separate bowl, add the contents of the liquid sachet. After the three minutes of cooking, put the noodles and broth into the bowl, stir, and it’s done.

Has a nice scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and pork I sauteed with a little garlic salt. The noodles were premium with a nice gauge and chewiness that was akin to fresh variants of store-bought fresh ramen noodles. The broth had a good saltiness, but not overly so. It had a rich depth in soy taste, but not overwhelming. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4901990511001.

Here’s the appearance I did on God Of Patena!
