This one was in a Ramen Trunk subscription box.These boxes are full of extremely high end varieties that you’ll never find in the United States or anywhere outside Japan! Check out this link and use coupon code RAMENRATER20OFF for 20% off any single box or subscription!

Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Ebisoba Ichigen  is a ramen restaurant originally founded in Sapporo City, Hokkaido. Due to their very distinct taste and their success they have even expanded to Tokyo opening 2 shops in the capital city.

Ebisoba Ichigen’s unique feature and taste can be attributed to its use of shrimp broth into their soup base. The shrimp broth is delicately boiled with some of the freshest Hokkaido shrimp (including the heads!), to create this flavor which is highly sought after and truly one of a kind. This combination creates a very rich and savory broth with a hint of sweetness fro the shrimps. This box is the miso based broth perfectly combined with the shrimp flavor.

This is truly a ramen you don’t want to miss. Oftentimes some patrons believe the shrimp flavor to be too strong but the chefs have perfected the shrimp flavors in the pursuit of the perfect seafood broth.”

Wow – so this sounds really fancy – I’m enthused as I love shrimp – let’s see what we have!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, spring onion, shichimi togarashi, kizami shoga, chashu pork, sesame seeds, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Holy crap this is delicious. Okay, so the noodles have an excellent chewiness and a great gauge – probably the thickest ramen I’ve had that hasn’t been considered udon. The broth has a tasty miso flavor – rich and deep. But that shrimp oil is just showy and giving; it’s like Warren Buffet at an orphanage giving. IT’s tasty – makes everything taste like an umami bomb made of prawns just was detonated in your mouth. Loved this and actually ate the whole thing. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.JAN bar code 4533446001059.

Sure enough, it smells like miso.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, corn and soft boiled egg with a dash of nanami togarashi. The noodles hydrated nicely and were of good quality.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Sapporo Ichiban Miso Ramen

Here’s one of the four fancy varieties from Sapporo Ichiban – their miso ramen variety. Miso is a fermented soybean paste. Here’s a little about it from Wikipedia

Miso ramen is a relative newcomer, having reached national prominence around 1965. This uniquely Japanese ramen, which was developed in Hokkaido, features a broth that combines copious miso and is blended with oily chicken or fish broth – and sometimes with tonkotsu or lard – to create a thick, nutty, slightly sweet and very hearty soup. Miso ramen broth tends to have a robust, tangy flavor, so it stands up to a variety of flavorful toppings: spicy bean paste or tōbanjan (豆瓣醤), butter and corn, leeks, onions, bean sprouts, ground pork, cabbage, sesame seeds, white pepper, and chopped garlic are common. The noodles are typically thick, curly, and slightly chewy.

It’s true – miso is great  with butter and corn! Let’s give it a try!

Looks like togarashi.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added corn, Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, spring onion and chashu pork. The noodles came out nicely – almost seemed like they were a little different but unsure. The broth had a nice miso flavor. It wasn’t a strong hit you in the face with a baseball bat, but it was strong enough to definitely let you know that it was miso. To be honest, I liked it – it worked quite well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 076186000073.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Kabuto Noodles Miso Ramen

I’ve got to say – it’s been quite a while since I’ve had this one – #1167! Seems like it’s been forever since I’ve reviewed anything from the UK as well. Well, let’s kick this Meet The Manufacturer off with one of their first varieties, miso! Here’s something to note – over in the UK, these aren’t commonly referred to as ‘cup noodles’ – they refer to these containers as ‘pots.’

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open lid and fill to line with boiling water. Cover and let steep for 3-4 minutes. Stir well and let sit for 1 additional minute. Enjoy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, hard boiled egg, spring onion and pepper flakes. The noodles are hearty and plentiful – really plentiful! They have a nice homestyle feel to them too. The broth has a nice miso flavor – and it does indeed have a decent amount of flavor – not bland like most other instants I’ve had from the UK. The cavalcade of bits and pieces in the broth make it really hearty and nice. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 5060250610072.

#1712: Sakurai Foods Organic Miso Ramen

Wow it’s Summer here today! Just hit 90 degrees and the clouds are rolling in – hoping for a nice lightning storm to watch tonight. I’m still reviewing instant noodles in this weather though – it’s 83 degrees in our apartment right now. Wish we had air conditioning! It rarely gets this warn in Western Washington though. Anyways, I thought some miso might be a good one to try today, and an organic one at that. The packaging has a Vegan logo on it, but I think I might add some meat in with it. Let’s have a look at this organic miso ramen!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Add in liquid sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer #885: Yamachan Miso Ramen Rich Sapporo Miso

So yesterday I tried the mild miso and today I’m hitting up the rich. This one says it’s ‘Sapporo miso’ – curious to see what its like.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

The noodle portions come individually wrapped on a tray.

The miso packets.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some onions, a hard boiled egg with some Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some baked chicken with Soul Seasoning and Ajishima Kimchi Furikake. The noodles are reaslly good – chewy and fresh. The broth was a surprise. I expected a really really strong miso flavor that would bowl me over. It’s exactly as mentioned on the package – rich. Broth is of a brown and almost milky color. The broth has an extremely nice depth to it and is really good. I was expecting a really salty and almost funky bitter taste which I did not get at all and I am happy about that. Serious depth of flavor – I like it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – this is excellence.  UPC bar code 767921011200 .
