Best Buta Kimchi Ramen from Acecook Super Cup Series

When I went to university in Tokyo, I was among the students who lived a frugal life, and I loved Acecook’s Super Cup 1.5 series (first released in 1988) very much.

As the number 1.5 denotes, the amount of ramen is large compared to average instant noodles and ample, and besides, every flavor is so tasty (because of which I liked it).

Even among them, the best for me was this Buta Kimchi Ramen (豚キムチラーメン: pork kimchi ramen), and I enjoyed that for the first time in a long time today.

Not only is this Buta Kimchi Ramen so yummy and voluminous, but it is also inexpensive and budget friendly.

I bought this at a supermarket for 118 yen, by the way.

The contents are like this. The cup comes with two flavor packets (green: exquisite pork kimchi oil/brown: soup base powder).

And the dehydrated garnishes on the dried wheat noodle block consist of seasoned pork, Chinese cabbage kimchi, green onions, and red chili peppers.


The cooking of this instant ramen is not that complicated. First, put the soup base powder and pour boiling water until it fills the line inside the cup. 

Then close the lid and wait for 3 minutes, and later, add the pork kimchi oil and stir well.

The wheat noodles are firm, pleasantly chewy, and go down smoothly, while the broth is light but has a not-so-spicy nice kimchi flavor.

The taste of this Buta Kimchi Ramen has not changed but is so good that I think it could not be better than this.

Yes, I can say this is one of the best instant noodles of my life in many respects.
