Re-Review: Nissin Demae Ramen Black Garlic Oil Tonkortsu Flavour Instant Noodle

Since I don’t have a huge amount of noodles that haven’t been reviewed yet (around 8 at the moment and I could go through those in four or five says possibly), I’ve decided I should hit the overstock box and see what’s in there. My wife Kit got me a five pack of these for my birthday back in March and so I figure I should eat ’em up! Here’s the original review – look there for the original pics I did of the packaging, packets, etcetera.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added thin-sliced rib eye, an egg, green onion, Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake and kizami shoga (pickled ginger). The noodles are nicely done – just what you expect from Demae Ramen. The broth was excellent – not too salty and had a rich, deep flavor. I stand by my 4.5/5.0 star rating from before – great stuff!

#702: Meet The Manufacturer – Nissin Demae Ramen Black Garlic Oil Tonkotsu Flavour Instant Noodle

My lovely wife got me this for my birthday! Ooh black garlic oil tonkotsu? I can’t wait to try this! Sounds awesome!

Note the instructions and ingredients (click image to enlarge).

This is the noodle block – in great condition despite shipping from Hong Kong!

Powder seasoning.

Note the little flecks in the powder.

Here’s the star of the show – black garlic oil!

This gets added at the very end.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a smattering of Bird’s Eye Stir-fry veggies, a little kamaboko, a little narutomaki, an egg that I boiled with the noodles, a little Ajishima Kim Chi furikake and a little bit of the Sushinori (seaweed). So if you look at the lower edge of the broth, you can see the black oil! Pretty cool looking. First, the noodles are very good – very much like the noodles Nissin makes for Top Ramen but just a little firmer I think. The broth is sensational – salty and has a nice depth to it – the garlic oil is very nice! This was a very good one – hard to get in the US but worth it if you can. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars!  UPC barcode 4897878830015
