Myojo Instant Ramen – Are they any good?

Let me start by saying that I’m a fan of Myojo’s Premium instant ramen. The texture of the noodles is really quite different to what you get in most other instant ramen noodles. They actually come quite close to what you might find in a restaurant – but of course they’re never going to be quite as good.

Myojo instant noodles come in a variety of different flavors and types. Myojo’s signature instant noodle flavor is Spicy Chicken Curry. Myojo also offers other flavors such as Seafood, Shrimp and Scallop, Chinese Style Beef, and Vegetarian.

I’ve also written about the top 10 selling instant ramen in Japan.

My Favorite Type of Myojo Instant Ramen

 

Chukazanmai Instant Ramen

Chukazanmai is a long standing favorite of Japanese people. The noodles really have a soft, springy quality to them that really sets them apart from a lot of the others. 

They are pretty easy to make considering how they turn out.

How to Make Chukazanmai Instant Ramen

The instructions on the back of the pack read:

  1. Boil noodles for 4 minutes in 400ml of water
  2. Put in soup flavoring
  3. Mix soup to dissolve
  4. Put in a dish with desired vegetables and meat.

The chukazanmai pack contains two flavor packages, a liquid and a powder.

Here’s a shot of the noodles boiling up. The noodles are soft when you open the pack and have a nice texture.

I like to add chinese pork, eggs, carrots, hakusai cabbage and spring onions to top it off. It comes out looking something like this:

Where Can You Buy Chukazanmai
