Below are the contents of March’s Ramen Pack which is themed Shoyu Love:-
Pokémon Noodle – Shoyu Udon
To celebrate National Pokémon Day on 27th February, ZenPop has included two Limited Edition Pokémon noodles in this Ramen pack! This one is a classic udon dish of thick and chewy wheat-flour noodles in a clear and lightly coloured soy sauce broth which is flavoured with kelp and katsuobushi and a Pikachu-shaped topping – cute!
Pokémon Noodle Shoyu Ramen
The second Pokémon noodle pot is Shoyu Ramen and features a tasty broth flavoured with chicken, garlic, ginger, menma and scallops. It has Pikachu-shaped toppings, a slice of chashu and corn to fill it out.
Ekimae Shokudo Shoyu Ramen
Next, we have Ekimae Shokudo which is similar to the ramen bowls which are served at Japanese train stations. This pot of non-fried noodles comes in a deep chicken broth which is flavoured with soy sauce, garlic and pepper and topped with menma, kamaboko, scallions and bok choy.
Keika Kumamoto Tonkotsu Ramen
Keika Ramen restaurant is a famous ramen spot in Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu. Their ramen has characteristics of rich tonkotsu broth which is made with pork bones and garlic chips with ma-yu, a burnt sesame oil and garlic seasoning. It’s very strong on the garlic so you have been warned!
Yokohama Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen
Tabimen is a collection of seven notable ramen dishes from Yokohama, Kitakata, Kyoto, Sapporo, Hakata and Hiroshima. Here you can recreate one from Yokohama called Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen which uses traditional pork bone broth mixed with Tokyo’s famous shoyu soup – yum!
Homerun Chicken Shoyu Ramen
A solid shoyu flavoured soup is included in this ramen bowl to bright out the original flavour of chicken, whilst the soy sauce addition is not overwhelming. The non-fried noodles and healthy and chewy, and the topps include chashu, moyashi, negi and kamaboko.
Rich and Sweet Thick Yakisoba
The last product in this box is also the biggest and what a treat it is for ramen lovers! This special yakisoba combines thick and chewy noodles with a sweet Kansai-style okonomiyaki sauce. Flavoured with roasted onion, garlic and lots of spices, the rich and sweet sauce goes well with mustard mayonnaise and enhances the toppings of cabbage, aosa and red pickled ginger.
