Nissin Cup Noodle Bukkomi Meshi Instant Rice
When it comes to Japanese instant noodles, Nissin Cup Noodle is one of the most popular cup ramens, known as the world’s first instant cup noodle.
The manufacturer Nissin introduced the line’s original product in 1971, and since then, the company has been developing a wide variety of Cup Noodles to suit local tastes in each country.
Nissin Cup Noodle Bukkomi Meshi
In recent years, Nissin introduced instant rice products with the brand name of Cup Noodle, and today I got the regular product “Bukkomi Meshi (ぶっこみ飯)” from the series.
The cup rice was released in March 2017, but this is the first time I try it.
By the way, the meaning of “Bukkomi Meshi (ぶっこみ飯)” is putting steamed plain rice into the soup after you finish all the noodles in a bowl of ramen.
Therefore, when you peel back the lid, you see white rice grains in the cup instead of wheat noodles.
The garnishes and soup base for the cup rice are almost the same as the original soy sauce flavor Nissin Cup Noodle, including shrimps, egg bits, and mystery meat.
The cooking of this Nissin Bukkomi Meshi is as simple as its noodle soup version.
- First, peel back the lid to the dotted line on the surface.
- Pour boiling water evenly onto the rice until it reaches the line indicated inside the cup.
- Then, close the lid and let the rice sit and cook for 5 minutes.
- 5 minutes later, remove the lid, stir all the ingredients well with chopsticks, and it’s ready to eat.
Some Japanese people love the miso soup-soaked rice, while some others like to put plain rice grains in the ramen soup after they enjoy the noodles.
You might think these are crazy ideas, but if you try this instant cup rice once, that thought would change.
I think this Bukkomi Meshi cup rice is just as delicious as the original soy sauce flavor Nissin Cup Noodle.
