Nissin Cup Noodle Rich Sea Urchin Cream Instant Ramen
As you know, Nissin Foods is Japan’s top instant noodles manufacturer, and its flagship cup ramen, Nissin Cup Noodle(s), is widely enjoyed in many countries.
Nissin has created unique quicky flavors for the series over the past few years, including Matcha and Pizza Potato Tomato. And the other day, I accidentally found this Rich Sea Urchin flavor.
Nissin Cup Noodle Luxurious Rich Uni Cream
I purchased this Nissin Cup Noodle Luxurious Rich Uni Cream at a supermarket. As you can see from the name, the main feature of this cup ramen is Uni (うに) or sea urchin.
In the cup, there is yellow stuff associated with sea urchin roe. According to the product description, the things contain 6.9 percent of real sea urchins.
Other garnishes include broccoli, and the orange sachet attached to the lid contains a special flavor paste.
The cooking of this instant ramen is the same as regular Cup Noodles. But as a finishing touch, you must add the special flavoring paste to the cup.
The yellow stuff becomes fluffy and more like real Uni, rehydrated with water after cooking.
Its taste is also pretty close to sea urchin and can satisfy the eater.
Meanwhile, the broth has plenty of umami of seafood, which goes perfectly with the Uni-like stuff.
The Cup Noodle Luxurious Rich Uni Cream is pricy compared to regular Cup Noodles, as it is rich and luxurious.
But it tastes pretty good and is recommended to every instant ramen fan, though it is probably a limited-time offer.
