Here’s another one that was sent to me by Javier over at Box From Japan – thanks! Box From Japan is a subscription service – you can get a box sent to you every month with some great noodles within! It says in the leaflet sent with the box that this has a duck flavor and a sweetness to it. Let’s check it out!

Liquid soup base.
Very dark liquid.
The solid ingredients sachet.
Spring onion, duck meatloaf and fried batter.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kizami shoga and spring onion. The noodles had a different consistency than I’m used to – very interesting and it seemed fitting for duck. It was almost more earthy; not in flavor but in texture. The broth was probably the best duck I’ve had yet – it’s not too strong, not too weak. I also liked the duck meatloaf bits and other garnish – everything hydrated very well. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
