#521: Menraku Japanese Ramen “Soy Sauce” Authentic Ramen Soup

Here’s another Menraku coming atcha. Been weird the last two days; gotten over 10,000 visits to the blog from people using StumbleUpon and ending up on the ‘Recipes’ page… Pretty cool! Anyways, this looks like an interesting bowl of noodles and should be tasty. Let’s dig in.

Powdered seasoning and veggies in the larger packet and soy sauce concoction on the right.

Here’s the contents of the packets atop the noodle block. Add some boiling water and give it a few minutes…

The noodles sucked up a good amount of the flavor and were very good. The vegetables re-hydrated to perfection. I got this at Uwajimaya in Bellevue, Washington. You can find it here online. Excellent! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars!

An advert for all the different flavors!

How It’s Made: Soy Sauce

#482: Menraku Japanese Ramen “Shio” Authentic Ramen Soup

Got this one at the new Bellevue Uwajimaya. Shio means salt, so I suppose this is salt ramen. Let’s give it a try!

Oil on left and veggie and soup base pouch on right. Pouch is pretty good sized.

Here it is, awaiting the boiling bath and a couple of fried eggs…..

But it wasn’t nasty salty; it was used as a flavoring rather than something to dump on fries as we commonly do. I don’t know how else to explain. The veggies were great – corn, seaweed and cabbage. Eggs on top and boo yah. 4.5 out of 5.0 – very good. Find it here.
