Nissin Cup Noodle Rich Sea Urchin Cream Instant Ramen

Nissin is the top instant noodles manufacturer with the largest market share in Japan. As you know, the Japanese company’s flagship cup ramen is Nissin Cup Noodle(s) which is widely enjoyed around the world.

The Cup Noodle series is known for having many varieties that differ depending on each country, and in Japan, Nissin has created unique, novel flavors for the series over the past few years, including “Matcha” and “Pizza Potato Tomato”.

And the other day when I went shopping at a supermarket near my house, I came across by chance a new product of that kind from Nissin that drew my interest, so I picked it up.

The name of the Nissin Cup Noodle that I purchased this time is “Nissin Cup Noodle Luxurious Rich Uni Cream”.

As you can see from the name, the main feature of this cup ramen is “Uni (うに)” or sea urchin that is popular as a sushi topping.

As a matter of fact, when I peeled back the paper lid, yellow things associated with sea urchin roe instantly caught my eye. According to the description on the cup, the yellow stuff actually contains 6.9% real sea urchin.

By the way, the garnish other than the Uni-like food includes bits of broccoli, and the orange sachet attached to the top lid contains a special flavor paste.

The cooking of this instant ramen is basically the same as that of other regular Cup Noodles, but as a finishing, you need to add the special flavoring paste into the cup.

Rehydrated with the hot water after cooking, the yellow stuff becomes fluffy and more like real Uni. In fact, it has a close taste to sea urchin with a subtle fragrance of it. 

Meanwhile, the broth is packed with the umami of seafood, which goes perfectly with the Uni-like stuff, making the overall soup an absolute delight.

Nissin Cup Noodle Rich Uni Cream is somewhat pricy compared to regular Cup Noodles because it is literally RICH and LUXURIOUS! 

Although I want to recommend this to other instant ramen lovers, unfortunately, it is probably a limited-time offer.
