Kaisen Butter Ramen vs Nissin Cup Noodle Seafood + Butter

Yesterday, I picked up two types of seafood flavor instant noodles at my go-to convenience store. 

One is “Kaisen Butter Ramen (海鮮バターラーメン: literally Seafood Butter Ramen)” from Acecook, while the other is Nissin Cup Noodle’s regular seafood flavor.

These cup noodles are what I bought. The Kaisen Butter Ramen instant noodle was introduced by Acecook on June 21 of this year (2021), which, as its name indicates, comes with a small portion of butter.

On the other hand, as you may know, Nissin Cup Noodle Seafood is just a seafood flavor so doesn’t have butter. But I was wondering what this tastes like if I add butter to it.

As a matter of fact, the compositions of these cup ramens look almost the same, so this time I actually added a pat of butter to the Cup Noodle Seafood and compared the taste with Acecook’s Kaisen Butter Ramen.

First of all, Acecook Kaisen Butter Ramen is above all well-balanced in taste as it is designed, from the beginning, as “Seafood Butter Ramen”.

Specifically, the noodle soup itself is light-tasting but has plenty of umami of seafood and the accompanying butter makes the taste much richer and creamier.

But, as I expected, the Cup Noodle Seafood too worked very well with a pat of butter, which adds extra savoriness and buttery umami to the overall noodle soup and makes it decadent.


It might be difficult to get the Acecook Kaisen Butter Ramen outside of Japan, but just by adding a pat of butter to Nissin Cup Noodle Seafood, you can make delicious Kaisen Butter Ramen easily.
