Meet The Manufacturer #889: Yamachan Ramen Rich Shoyu Ramen

This is the last of the samples I got from Yamachan Ramen! Must admit I’m sad to see them go! Very tasty fare and it’s been a lot of fun! This one’s shoyu. Let’s give it a try.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

Here are the bags of fresh ramen noodles.

The soup base.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, yellow onion, green bell pepper, turkey breast, hard boiled egg, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), green onions and Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are nice – chewy and fresh. The broth is pretty good – has a strong soy taste but also a bitterness and a sweetness – as lot going on there. Good stuff! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 767921011101 .

Meet The Manufacturer #888: Yamachan Ramen Nagasaki Sara Udon Chicken Flavor

Here’s something different. Sara Udon means plate noodles – what you have is a crispy noodle that is thin. You put them on the plate and crush gently, then add the sauce and during the meal, the noodles go from crisp to soft. It’s a texture sensation! Well, let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Notice the directions.

Here are the noodles. Like big nests of thin noodles.

Here are the packets of liquid seasoning.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added yellow onion, broccoli, green bell pepper, chicken, green onion and Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are of a very interesting nature; when they don’t have sauce on them, they are crunchy. When they do, they absorb the liquid and become increasingly soggy – in a good way! The sauce is a slightly thick lightly chicken flavored concoction. The flavor is very nice – definitely not too salty at all and really tasty. This is a uniquely Japanese dish that evolves as you eat it – from crisp to soft noodle texture. Loved this one – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 767921016809 .

Meet The Manufacturer #887: Yamachan Ramen Cold Noodles With Lemon Soy Dressing

I’ve had a few cold noodle varieties from South Korean manufacturers, but never any Japanese cold noodles. Let’s have a look at this one!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Notice the different cooking instructions.

The noodle blocks.

This is the dressing; you don’t dilute it.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green bell pepper, yellow onion, broccoli, green onion, oven baked chicken, hard boiled egg and Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are just as good cold as hot – they are nice and fresh and chewy and wonderful. The dressing is very delicate and light. It goes very well – has a light lemon taste which is nice. Good stuff! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 767921019404 .

The Yamachan Ramen noodle factory!

This looks really cool – I think I’ll see what my son thinks of it. He’s seen all of the Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato) and we’re checking out Robotech currently;y.

The noodles are really good as usual – nicely chewy and really fresh. The broth has a complex flavor – a strong soy taste. Has a sort of bitterness and a sweet taste as well. Lovely color too. This is some tasty stuff! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 767921011309 .

Meet The Manufacturer #885: Yamachan Miso Ramen Rich Sapporo Miso

So yesterday I tried the mild miso and today I’m hitting up the rich. This one says it’s ‘Sapporo miso’ – curious to see what its like.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

The noodle portions come individually wrapped on a tray.

The miso packets.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some onions, a hard boiled egg with some Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some baked chicken with Soul Seasoning and Ajishima Kimchi Furikake. The noodles are reaslly good – chewy and fresh. The broth was a surprise. I expected a really really strong miso flavor that would bowl me over. It’s exactly as mentioned on the package – rich. Broth is of a brown and almost milky color. The broth has an extremely nice depth to it and is really good. I was expecting a really salty and almost funky bitter taste which I did not get at all and I am happy about that. Serious depth of flavor – I like it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – this is excellence.  UPC bar code 767921011200 .

This is a Japanese cooking show called Dotch. They’re having a challeng: Onion Miso Ramen vs Salt Butter Ramen! I had no idea onion miso ramen was somewhat normal – I just like onions a lot and it sounded good.

Meet The Manufacturer #884: Yamachan Miso Ramen – Mild

Here’s another one of the fresh ramen samples from Yamachan. I’ve not been a big fan of miso in the past, but I’m open to this – looks fancy.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Note the dual-pot method.

Here are the fresh noodles.

Here is the soup base.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onion, green bell pepper and broccoli. Also some turkey lunch meat with some Ajishima Kimchi furikake on top. The noodles are impeccable – fresh and tasty! Now I mentioned earlier that I didn’t like the flavor of miso. Well, I’m not going to say that I do now, but this was interesting. It was very salty and had an earthy flavor. I know it’s fermented and it definitely tasted like it. All in all not bad! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 767921019206 .

Here’s a nivdeo of the Yamachan factory!

Here’s a video on what miso is and how its made.

Meet The Manufacturer #883: Yamachan Shio Ramen Seafood Clear Soup Base Mild

This is something a little different. This is two servings of fresh ramen in a pack. They’re made in San Jose and this looks to be something gourmet. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

The noodles are fresh – it looks like you could take them out and take a rolling pin to them and they’d turn back into dough! Pretty neat.

The soup base is a packet of liquid.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Just the noodles and broth this time. The noodles are really quite good; chewy and taste literally like they were just made. Definitely gourmet grade. The broth is interesting too. My only experience with the concept of Shio is a couple Shio flavor packs and one bowl. The broth here is salty, yes (Shio means salt in Japan) but the saltiness is tempered with a depth of flavors. It’s not violently fishy by any means – its quite nice really. I liked this one – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 767921019503

I know PSY’s gottten big here with the Gangnam Style, but I’m still surprised Kyary Pamyu Pamyu still hasn’t.
