Nissin Tokyo Shoyu Japanese Ramen Instant Noodle
Nissin Tokyo Shoyu Japanese Ramen Instant Noodle from Singapore.
Inside the packet, the noodle block and three sachets of dried seaweed garnish, seasoning powder and seasoning oil.
A closer view at the fried noodle block.
The seasoning powder is "chicken" flavoured.
The garnishing consists of just tiny bits of dried seaweed.
The seasoning oil is a blend of palm and sesame oil with artificial "chicken" flavouring.
The hot steaming bowl of noodle soup was ready to eat within 5 minutes. The globules of oil were clearly visible floating on the surface of the broth.
The noodles were thick and quite bouncy. There was a slight wheat taste. I liked these straight (instead of the usual curly), slurpy smooth noodles.
The "broth" was tea coloured with little body. The "chicken" flavour was savoury but there was no aroma from the broth.
The little bits of dried seaweed were quite fragrant and worked quite well with the noodles. However, there was very little of it.
The "broth" was quite greasy - a film of tacky oil got stuck to the dip stick. I did not finish the broth as I found it too oily for my liking. (Suggest readers use less of the oil from the sachet in the packet.)
Nissin Tokyo Shoyu Japanese Ramen Instant Noodle is certified Halal.
Rating: 4/10 based on Johor Kaki standardised instant noodle rating system.
