Myojo Chuka Soba Tomita Instant Mazesoba Noodles
These days, I’m enjoying listening to Perfume’s newest Album “Future Pop”, and the album tour is actually just around the corner! It starts on September 21st in Nagano which I’m going to see.
Before going there, I actually went to Makuhari Messe this February in Chiba City to take part in their fan club concert.
The next day, with a friend of mine living in Saitama, I went out to the city Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture to eat Tsukemen noodles offered by Chuka Soba Tomita.
Chuka Soba Tomita (中華蕎麦とみ田)
“Chuka Soba Tomita (中華蕎麦とみ田)” (Google Map) is a ramen shop located in Matsudo famous for Tsukemen noodles.
Once we arrived there, we bought ramen tickets from a vending machine and made a reservation for the specific time period we have the Tsukemen noodles. After that, we headed to the city center to kill some time.
Actually, Chuka Soba Tomita is so popular that it offers dishes by advance reservation. As for us, it took about 2 hours until we could eat the Tsukemen noodles.
But it was worth the wait. The thick dipping broth had lots of umami from seafood, pork bones, and chicken, and was really delicious, while the homemade noodles were delightfully chewy and could make us satisfied.
Myojo Chuka Soba Tomita Tonkotsu Gyokai Instant Mazesoba
Speaking of Chuka Soba Tomita, the other day I came across the instant noodle pictured above “Myojo Chuka Soba Tomita Tonkotsu Gyokai Mazesoba” in a 7 Eleven by chance.
For the unfamiliar, “Mazesoba (まぜそば)”, also known as “Abura Soba (油そば)“, is a kind of soupless ramen whose noodles, before eating, need to be mixed with liquid seasonings placed at the bottom of the bowl.
As you can guess, the instant noodle was actually created by Myojo with the help of the ramen shop Chuka Soba Tomita.
Contents and Cooking
In the container, these 3 packets were placed on the dried wheat noodle block.
As you can see in the video, the cooking of this instant Mazesoba is almost the same as the cooking instructions for instant yakisoba.
As “Tonkotsu (豚骨)” means pork bones and “Gyokai (魚介)” means seafood in Japanese, the instant noodle was literally packed with the savory umami from pork bones and seafood and tasted quite good.
