Here’s one from Japan Ramen Box – a subscription service out of Japan. Here’s what they have to say about this variety – ‘If you’re partial to enjoying the raw flavor of noodles, you’ll enjoy these noodles that have been dried over 3 days to achieve the same taste and texture as raw noodles! These addictive noodles will make you thankful that they were so carefully and painstakingly prepared! Coupled with a thick boiled pork and chicken broth, you can be sure your meal will be filling and satisfying! Asahikawa has been working to recreate this ramen shop taste since 1955 – and they succeeded!’
Shoyu – it’s on!

You don’t have to fly all the way to this old city in winter because Asahikawa will come to your warm, cozy home with this tasty version of shoyu ramen.’ Sounds interesting – let’s hit it!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains chicken and pork. To prepare, add 360ml boiling water and dry sachet. Cover for 5 minutes. Add in liquid base sachet. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, and shichimi togartashi. The noodles were alright although nothing fantastic. The broth has a kind of over-soy kind of taste to them I disliked. The inclusion of the bits of scrambled egg was nice at least. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105245026.
