Meet The Manufacturer: #1453: Nissin Japanese Ramen Kyushu Black Instant Noodles With Soup Base

Toiday, I’m reviewing another new one from Nissin Singapore – Kyushu Black. Kyushu style ramen is different in that it features broth with a cloudy nature and rich flavor. Nissin Singapore’s Kyushu Black looks from the package to feature this. The black part? Black garlic oil! Looks interesting! What to add…

Last night, my wife and I had a sumptuous dinner over at Aunt Cindy and Uncle Joe’s place nearby. He just got a fancy new barbecue and made some excellent ribs we enjoyed with some local craft beer! I got some leftovers! Let’s dig in!

Here’;s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle to 600ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add in powder and paste. Stir and enjoy!

The dry seasoning sachet.

A large amount of light powder.

A paste sachet.

It has a sesame and garlic scent to it.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added barbecue ribs, green onion, kizami shoga and hard boiled egg. The noodles are again as in their Tokyo Shoyu variety – a nice gauge and premium feel. Good stuff! The broth is nice and milky with a rich flavor. The oil adds a very nice tension to the broth and looks really nice! Absolute enjoyment in a bowl. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888279660031.

Here’s a new one that came out a couple of months ago. I’ve got a copy I need to finish and review! So far, it’s really good.

Here’s a TV spot for the new Nissin Japanese Ramen line.

Meet The Manufacturer: #1450: Nissin Japanese Ramen Tokyo Shoyu Instant Noodles With Soup Base

Here’s a new line from Nissin Singapore – their premium Japanese ramen. There are two of them – this Tokyo Shoyu and one called Kyushu Black which I will be reviewing in the few days. So what is Tokyo Shoyu? Well, let’s start with some Wikipedia info on shoyu ramen:

Shōyu (“soy sauce”) ramen typically has a clear brown broth, based on a chicken and vegetable (or sometimes fish or beef) stock with plenty of soy sauce added resulting in a soup that is tangy, salty, and savory yet still fairly light on the palate. Shōyu ramen usually has curly noodles rather than straight ones, but this is not always the case. It is often adorned with marinated bamboo shoots or menma, green onions, kamaboko (fish cakes), nori (seaweed), boiled eggs, bean sprouts and/or black pepper; occasionally the soup will also contain chili oil or Chinese spices, and some shops serve sliced beef instead of the usual chāshū.

Then, info on the Tokyo aspect:

Tokyo style ramen consists of slightly thin, curly noodles served in a soy-flavoured chicken broth. The Tokyo style broth typically has a touch of dashi, as old ramen establishments in Tokyo often originate from soba eateries. Standard toppings are chopped scallion, menma, sliced pork, kamaboko, egg, nori, and spinach. Ikebukuro, Ogikubo and Ebisu are three areas in Tokyo known for their ramen.

Got it? Hope so! Let’s have a look at this new one from Nissin Singapore!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, narutomaki, kizami shoga, green onion and chicken I coated with La Selva Beach Spice Company Daily Grind seasoning and baked. The noodles are round and have a very good texture – definitely premium. Elastic and chewy with a nice bounce. The broth is wondeful – not overboard on strength and has just the right amount of oil to make things a little nicer. The seaweed is a welcome touch. Wonderful – 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Looks like a good book!
