Maruchan Black Pork Curry Udon : My best curry udon instant noodles
The Maruchan’s instant cup noodles I want to introduce this time is Maruchan Kuroi Buta Curry Udon (マルちゃん黒い豚カレーうどん), or literally Maruchan Black Pork Curry Udon Noodes (Amazon.com). Actually, I have the Japanese instant Udon noodles now.
This curry Udon instant noodle cup is another popular and standard instant cup noodles of Maruchan, which is famous as a long-selling instant curry Udon noodles in Japan. The original cup was released over 20 years ago.
There are two packets of ingredients included in the cup, the silver one for soup base powder and the transparent one for toppings.
These dried toppings consist of seasoned pork, onion, and carrot. Speaking of the feature of this instant curry udon, the soup broth is somewhat thick and rich in curry flavor and umami of pork and sweet onions, while the noodles are wide and flat like Nagoya’s “Kishimen (きしめん)“.
The noodles are not only well-coated with the broth thanks to its thickness, but Maruchan Black Curry Udon also has an addicting flavor of rich curry and is really tasty. In fact, like many other Japanese people, I have loved this instant curry Udon for a long time, over 10 years, and it is my best instant curry Udon noodle cup of all time.
