ramen rating: sun noodles shoyu

sun noodle shoyu ramen

I’ve always admired Sun Noodle’s simple packaging for this nama ramen. The noodles just look so simple and fresh. Will reality match perception?

Mmm, the tasty shoyu broth has a mellow barely-sweet undertone, but is clear and not too heavy. For a nama ramen, it’s great. And the firm curly noodles have a great chewy texture. It seems a bit undercooked at the suggested 2-1/2 mins so you might want to bump the cooking time to 3 mins. The noodles do a good job at absorbing the soup and this would make at least a decent bowl of ramen at a ramen shop with just a few more ingredients. And yes, the noodles do taste fresh.

Sun Noodle shoyu ramen gets a 8/10.

    Great to know of good options Ed, thanks for sharing.
    Btw, I haven’t seen them in a while but I’ve had a couple bad experiences with Chibakiya’s instant from Mitsuwa. Whomever makes them has quality control issues, I think packaging related. Even got one with nori (supposedly sealed) that was brown and old. 🙁

      @Dennis: are you talking about the Chibakiya bowl ramen? Brown and old nori? I hope you didn’t eat it. I remember not being too impressed with it and after looking around, I guess I lost my notes and never posted about it 😛

        Try checking Japanese and some Chinese supermarkets. If there’s a Mitsuwa supermarket near you, they should carry it.
