#3292: Sapporo Ichiban Kita Kyushi Moji-Harbor Cheese Curry Ramen - Japan

Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Let us introduce you to this brand new breakthrough ramen! Yaki Curry (grilled curry) is Moji-Harbor’s, in Fukuoka prefecture, beloved local dish, enjoyed for over 60 years. There are numbers of local cafes serving this dish around Moji-Harbor. The noodle itself is seasoned too which makes the soup blend in better with noodles. It’s a great combination of spicy curry soup with the mellow flavor of cheese.’

This sounds really good – as many of you know, I’m a staunch advocate for curry of all kinds, and Japanese curry is one of my favorite varieties. Let’s see how it fares.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, soft egg, spring onion, shichimi togarashi, Noodles came out pretty well. Broth does indeed have a cheese and curry taste to it, but not really finding the combo all that impressive. I think if it included more vegetable or meat it might be better. Nevertheless, it does have a curry and cheese flavor. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901734037071.

#2918: Nissin U.F.O. Cheese Curry Yakisoba

Hey look at this! This came by way of Hobby Link Japan, a great site that has all sorts of amazing Japanese things including instant noodles! Thank you very much! This variety is a yakisoba with a cheese curry flavor! I tell ya, this sounds really quite good to me! Here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

Yakisoba (焼きそば[jakiꜜsoba]), literally “fried buckwheat,” is a Japanese noodle stir-fry dish. Although soba means buckwheat, yakisoba noodles are actually made from wheat flour, and are typically flavored with a condiment similar to oyster sauce. The dish first appeared in food stalls in Japan during the early 20th century.[1]

Yakisoba is most familiarly served on a plate either as a main dish or a side dish. Another popular way to prepare and serve yakisoba in Japan is to pile the noodles into a bun sliced down the middle in the style of a hot dog, and garnish the top with mayonnaise and shreds of pickled ginger. Called yakisoba-pan (pan meaning bread) it is commonly available at local festivals or konbini (convenience stores).

Sometimes, Japanese white Udon is used as a replacement of Chinese style Soba and called Yakiudon. This variation was started in Kitakyushu or Kokura in Fukuoka Prefecture.

In Okinawa, Yakisoba is popular with Okinawans and U.S. service members stationed on the island alike. After the 1945 hostilities ended on Okinawa, the US military command supplied American food products to the malnourished residents. The preferred Okinawan version was prepared from spaghetti, spam, ketchup, any available vegetable (usually canned), and mayonnaise for frying. Mess halls and other on-base eateries often serve yakisoba. Chopped hotdogs are a popular addition to yakisoba made on Okinawa, in addition to other meats such as ham, chicken, and pork.

Alright – I’m excited to give this one a try – let’s go!

#1307: Nissin Cup Noodle Cheese Curry

This one was sent to me by Abbie C. of Hong Kong – thank you again! Curry – and cheese? Been very curious about this one, that’s for sure. I like curry a lot – one of the flavors that’s always strong and varies so much from culture to culture. Let’s see how it pairs with cheese and noodles in this cup.

The distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains chicken, pork and milk products.

The side panels (click image to enlarge). To prepare, open lid halfway and add 290ml boiling water. Close lid for 3 minutes, stir and enjoy.

The noodle block.

A lot of seasoning and pieces in the cup.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion and pork. The noodles are flat and slightly wide. They have a pleasant chew and are reasonable in quantity. The flavor is definitely curry and what’s most interesting is the cheese component. It’s kind of gooey and has an unexpected feel to it; kind of confuses the mouth a bit but not in a negative way. It’s fascinating. It works well and I liked it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105030196.

Cheese aliens and screaming – gotta love it.
