Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, black sesame, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Spring onion and soft egg. Noodle was quite impressive; I’m not usually a big fan of this style but they did a good job here. Moreover, the broth had a nice taste to it, not overly fishy or sweet. Included fishcake, meat and wakame were in good proportion. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4904760010056.
Here’s another one from Wes, a reader in northeast Canada. Thanks! He’s a big fan of products from Tokushima Seifun – and this is one of them. These Kinchan cups are interesting – they’ve got a neat character to them. Here’s what he wrote about this particular cup – ‘They started a new line of noodles supposed to taste like instant noodles of yesteryear. Says it is rich in aromas from red miso and vegetables.’ Sounds interesting – let’s check it out!
Kinchan Toku-Fun Shukodo Miso-Aji – Japan
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat – check for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water to fill line along with sachet contents. Cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, egg, scallions and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles were pretty good. Broth had a tangy red miso taste which I did indeed enjoy – I usually am not a big fan of red miso, so that was a pleasant surprise. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4904760010612.
Here’s one from Wes up in north eastern Canada – thank you again! He has time and again sent really interesting varieties by Kinchan of Japan – really hard to find stuff. This one’s a shoyu tonkotsu – let’s check it out!
Kinchan Noodle Shoyu Tonkotsu – Japan
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Don’t know for sure but guessing this contains pork. To prepare, add in sachet contents and boiling water to fill line. Cover for 4 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallions, soft boiled egg, and chashu. The noodles were a little on the spongy side, however when I had finished garnishing and taken pictures, they were quite good. Broth has a definite soy and pork bone hit to it and the included garnish was very nice with crisp veg and pork. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4904760010353.
