#391: Myojo Hyoubanya no Chukasoba Japanese Style Noodles Oriental Flavor

So on our recent trip to the new Bellevue Uwajimaya, we got a 5-pack of this stuff. My lady Kit really enjoyed the Myojo Charmela stuff so I thought maybe this would be something she would like too.

One packet.  A sleek and awesome packet of Japanese-ness.

The powder of the packet in the bowl awaiting the noodles.

#328: Nongshim Big Bowl Udon Japanese Style Noodle Soup

Ladies and gentlemen, the enormous Ramen Box has been opened and we begin. This one comes from Korea.

A single packet of powdered soup base.

Holy cow look at this one! There’s the big pile of seasoning powder in the middle, but look at all this other stuff! Wow, I’m thoroughly impressed – I wasn’t expecting to see this much stuff going on here. Neat little naruto slices, sliced fish stuff, and fried somethings. I would love to know what all these things are! Lots of veggies too – carrot and onion and more.

This is a rarity in the instant noodle world I assure you. The broth had a very nice seafood taste and was very nice. I really was impressed with this one and give it 4.5 out of 5.0 stars!

#148: Myojo Okinawa Soba Japanese Style Noodles With Soup Base

So been really wanting to try this one! Okinawa soba! We needed to spend a little more for the parking validation at Uwajimaya so this looked good! It’s a 5 pack – haven’t see anywhere selling individuals.

Here is an individual pack of noodles…

Two packets – powder and chili flakes.

So the powder contains some fish extract and was quite good – mackerel, salmon, bonito, tuna… Was quite a crowd of fish.

So here’s the finished product (click image to enlarge). I found the noodles to be absolutely superb – chewy and flat. The broth was complex and had a great smell and taste. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Very good! Get it here.
