Lots of little granules and other bits from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, green onions, and chashu pork. Noodles were a little thicker which worked well although I wasn’t sure it would at first. Broth has a nice oiliness and rich flavor – spiciness is slight and heartiness in the forefront. Small bits of mince were present throughout which was welcome as well as small square slices of meat. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902881417389.

Here’s one I got from ZenPop, a company that’s producing ramen boxes in Japan. They have a new box every month with 9 different varieties for $29.50 – a pretty impressive deal as they include the shipping in the price.

Here’s how they describe this variety: ‘This miso based soup is spiced up with cilantro. It’s hot and spicy, but is absolutely savory! Don’t forget to keep a towel and a cup of water at hand. You’ll be dripping in sweat and get thirsty!’

Alrighty them – let’s give this a look!

A deep colored oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles were of a standard gauge although straighter than most if that makes sense. The broth was really interesting. Juxtaposed with a strong cilantro (coriander) flavor throughout was this spiciness – Sichuan pepper. It really was the last thing I would have expected from a Japanese instant noodle yet there it was. Very curious and interesting – they just keep coming up with more and more new flavors. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071239251.
