Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Sapporo Ichiban Original Flavor Oriental Noodle Soup

Here we have the cup version of the flavor we started this Meet The Manufacturer series with – original flavor. This is soy sauce flavor, aka shoyu. Here’s a little about shoyu ramen from Wikipedia –

Shōyu (醤油, “soy sauce”) ramen is the oldest of the four, it 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 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.

Let’s pop the top and dig in!

Sapporo Ichiban offers four standard pillow pack style noodles, four special varieties, and four cup varieties. It makes it easy to do a different one every day during this Meet The Manufacturer series. I have, however, reviewed them all before, but it was a very long, long time ago. I usually don’t like to do re-reviews, but I think in this case I’m very happy to make an exception. I’ve been wanting to do a Meet The Manufacturer with Sanyo Foods America for years and getting the chance to has been a lot of fun!

Today, we’ve got one of the cups – this one has a shrimp flavor to it. Let’s look inside and see what it’s all about.

A flecked powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added organic Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, sesame seeds and shichimi togarashi. The noodle came out quite good – a good backbone and sturdy chew. The broth was very nice – it had a sweet taste of shrimp I found very impressive and tasty. The included garnish hydrated well – especially the shrimp which were of a good size. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 076186700041.

A video about farmed shrimp. Not to say this is how Sapporo Ichiban gets theirs, but thought it might be neat to watch while eating a shrimp noodle cup.
