Ramen Review 6: Nissin Tokyo Shoyu Flavor (Imported)

Ease of Preparation: 8/10
Place noodles, soup base, and veggies into the bowl; add boiling water and allow to stand 5 minutes, covered. Uncover, stir in seasoning packet, and enjoy.

Vegetable Packet: 5/10
Shredded nori. Although quite delicious, it would have been better with a sprinkling of minced scallion.

Seasoning Packets: 10/10
The soup base - chicken, seafood, and pork flavors in a well-balanced and delicious blend - is excellent. A second packet contained a bit of soy sauce and some chicken-flavored vegetable oil. There was just enough seasoning to give a rich, deep flavor to the soup that was very satisfying.

Taste: 10/10
Marvelous. The soy sauce was not at all overwhelming.

Spiciness: 0/10 - This is not marketed as a spicy ramen.

Overall: 9/10 - Recommended.

Without a doubt my favourite packet noodles at the minute. I find they're better with slightly less water (400ml), and cooked for just under 3 minutes uncovered though.
