As I was craving for ramen, I came across Nissin Ramen and decided to give it a try. I bought Tokyo Shoyu and unleashed my
professional beginner cooking skill. Definitely, skills are needed for cooking instant noodle even if it’s just boiling the water and putting them in -ahem-. So, for beginner chefs out there, be proud of yourself even when you only can cook instant noodle! You are considered a good COOK too! 😛
In the packet, there’s the typical 3 sachets which are the oil, seasoning and special garnish as usual.
And TA-DAAAH! Here’s my unglam version of my take of cooking my ramen. Sorry for not being able to show you the special garnish as they were all underneath that ramen. I love adding soft boiled eggs into my instant noodle as it definitely builds up more flavors
(Just because I LOVE eating eggs). The moment when you pop the egg yolk and it spreads out to your noodle, uumph – perfecto!
At first, I was skeptical on how would an instant noodle ramen can be on par with the original ramen in Japan or any authentic Japanese ramen restaurants here. Although I have not tasted a lot of ramen restaurants in Malaysia however the only ramen restaurant that I have been eating at least once a month whenever I have the chance is Ippudo Ramen (Heavenly good).
Firstly, the flavour of this ramen packed quite a punch for me. I have been eating tonkatsu ramen (Pork bone broth – sorry to the Muslims reading) all my life and this Tokyo Shoyu Nissin Ramen gave me a whole new aspect towards ramen flavour.
To be honest, I thought the broth would just be mild savoury shoyu (Soy sauce) one. To my surprise, the soup was very flavourful! It tasted like miso soup with richer flavours in it! Even though it was very flavourful, however the saltiness of the soup was on point – not too salty.
In addition, the noodles had a springy, smooth texture just like how I wanted. All in all, it is a good bowl of noodle and definitely one of the cheapest options of ramen that you can find out there and tastes good too (Better if you can add more ingredients in like seaweed, etc). At the time of writing this, I made myself hungry again somehow. 🙁
Moreover, you can head over to Lazada to purchase if you would like to try this instant noodle at home! Try the other flavours too (I heard Kyushu Black is the best seller) ;). On the plus side to the Muslims, it is HALAL :D.
