#1890: Kuriki Beef Tongue Shio Mayo Ramen

Okay so you might be wondering – beef tongue shio mayo ramen – that couldn’t possibly mean… Yes. Where did I get it though?

This is Shinichi. In the intro to the Bottom Ten List video, he was kind enough to do the narration. I thought he resided in Osaka, Japan, but he’s currently in the Seattle area going to college! We decided we should meet up at The Ramen Rater WHQ and talk about noodles. He’s working with Mr., Yamato of Yakantei in an attempt to educate people about instant noodles from very localized regions of Japan – I’ll let you know a lot more about it soon. He brought me some really different varieties of instant noodles over, one of them was this one.  To answer the question, yes – it’s mayonnaise flavor! Let’s check this one out!

The back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish. to prepare, boil 550ml water and cook noodle block for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir – cook another 1.5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of two sachets.

Has an interesting scent – going to guess that this is the beef tongue flavor.

The second sachet.

Wow – it smells like mayonnaise – very strange!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), hard boiled egg and barbecue pork. The noodles have a nice gauge and tooth to them – like a light upgrade to your standard instant noodles. But that’s where the term ‘standard’ ends it applicability. The broth has a strong mayonnaise flavor with a kind of beefiness which is very ‘organ like’ – guessing it is ‘tongue-like.’ It’s a little weird eating something that’s supposed to taste like a tongue of a cow, but honestly, it’s quite good. The broth has a nice flavor and isn’t super thin, either. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4543185002002.

If you’re in the mood for something Japanese and want to try it with mayo style, look no further! Kewpie Mayonnaise (Japanese Mayo) – 500g Net 17.64 FL. OZ.
