#3009: Acecook Yokosuka Navy Curry Udon - Japan

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one –

“Yokosuka, Kanagawa used to have a navy base, and ‘Japanese curry’ was first born as a military food there. The city is now called ‘Curry City’ and based on their rules, curry should be served with salad and milk. Eat this Yokosuka curry udon and get the guts to fight against a hot summer.’

Curry City?! That’s the raddest thing I’ve ever heard of. Let’s check it out!

Smells like pepper.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, tofu puff and soft egg. (Sorry about the picture – I took it in the kitchen and dumped it down the sink before I brought it out to the photo setup I have). Noodles indeed are chewy with a slightly wider gauge. Broth has a nice peppery curry hit to it and included garnish was decent. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901071239640.

#2736: Kaset Instant Vermicelli Spicy Seafood Salad Flavour

#2736: Kaset Instant Vermicelli Spicy Seafood Salad Flavour - bean thread thailand the ramen rater

Found this one at the Jason’s Market grocery store in the bottom of the Taipei 101. I thought it looked interesting; first, it’s from Thailand. Second, it’s bean thread. I haven’t reviewed anything with beat thread in a very, very long time!

Of course, another neat thing about this one is the brand. I’ve never reviewed anything by Kaset brand – nor had I heard of them before seeing this one. It kind of boggles my mind; after so many reviews that there are still companies out there I’ve not even heard of. Makes me feel secure that there will be noodles for the next million years to review! Let’s check out this one from Kaset.

Looks like bits of vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Holy cow – okay so the bean thread came out just fine – transparent and glassy with a light chew. The flavor was a one two punch of heat and lemongrass along with nice seafood notes. The included garnish had vegetable and seafood bits and it was great. This was a very small portion, however, the sheer strength of flavor here makes it not one that you would scarf down and move on. A slow nosh full of flavor. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
