#3022: Myojo Japanese Yakisoba Curry Flavor – United States

#3022: Myojo Japanese Yakisoba Curry Flavor - United States

I was in Bellevue the other day and hit Uwajimaya for a couple things. I thought hey – I’ll make yakisoba for dinner! I just got a big huge frying wok and so that should be fun. So I go to the aisle with the cold cases and find the yakisoba. The one I usually pick up was frozen hard as a rock – not cool. I looked for another and most of those were brick-hard. Then I found this one and was happy. Well, I get it home and I’m pissed. It’s curry. Now, everyone knows I love curry; it’s almost a religious thing for me. But not everyone in my place likes curry for dinner. So that was that – no yakisoba for dinner. It’s my fault for not noticing it was curry, but then again I wish the one I wanted wasn’t akin to a cinder block in its solidness. But personally, I know this should be pretty good stuff – let’s give it a try!

Certainly smells like curry.

Man… Okay so the noodles are slightly thinner than most of the yakisoba I’ve had. Just a perfect tooth and great quantity. The flavor. This is heaven where Japanese curry is concerned. Sweet, salty and CURRY! Probably the best curry thing I’ve had in a Japanese variety thus far – and it’s made in the United States. Get it. Eat it. Marry it. 5,.0 out of 5.0 stars.

I’m pretty sure this has been in existence for decades and decades. One thing I truly enjoy is fresh yakisoba and making it for friends and family.

Think I might do a cooking video along with it. done a ton of live cooking vids lately so maybe it’s a good idea – we’ll see… Let’s hit it!

#2470: Myojo Udon Japanese Style Noodles With Soup Base Hot & Sour Flavor - United States - The Ramen Rater - nama

Here’s one that comes by way of a reader named Colin from Massachusetts – thanks again! So I’ve reviewed a slew of these packets of udon in the past. It’s been a while though – don’t know that I’ve ever seen this hot and sour either. Udon is a lot different when it comes to noodles than your standard instant – here’s a little from Wikipedia –

Udon (饂飩?, usually written as うどん) is a type of thick wheat flour noodle of Japanese cuisine. Udon is often served hot as a noodle soup in its simplest form, as kake udon, in a mildly flavoured broth called kakejiru, which is made of dashi, soy sauce, and mirin. It is usually topped with thinly chopped scallions. Other common toppings include tempura, often prawn or kakiage (a type of mixed tempura fritter), or aburaage, a type of deep-fried tofu pockets seasoned with sugar, mirin, and soy sauce. A thin slice of kamaboko, a halfmoon-shaped fish cake, is often added. Shichimi can be added to taste.

Hot and sour seems a definite departure from the more traditional udon. I could be wrong though – it does happen from time to time! Let’s take a look and give a try!

A granular powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shichimi togarashi and 31-40ct shrimp. The udon came out as expected – thick and chewy. The broth has a hot and sour taste. It leans towards the black vinegar kind of sour but not overly so. Moreover it has a bit of a bright crispness to it as well. Finally, the heat level is on the moderate end of the stick. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 011152036281.
