REVIEW – Ajinomoto Tokyo Style Chicken Shoyu Ramen (Frozen)
We tried some of Ajinomoto's frozen Chicken Shoyu (soy sauce) Ramen from Costco.
The box of ramen contained four frozen noodle bowls, individually packaged… which is nice because it means one less thing to be washed in the dishwasher.
Following the instructions, a frozen ramen bowl was super easy to prepare… just fill water up to the fill line in the bowl and microwave it for 5-6 minutes. The only thing of note is to spread out the water a little bit when pouring it over the noodles or the noodles might end up getting clumped.
The ramen broth tasted pretty good; it had a light soy sauce and chicken broth flavor. The corn was also sweet, and the noodles were a little bit al dente.
The picture of the bowl on the box was actually somewhat accurate (in terms of the count of each item) -- the ramen soup came with exactly one piece of broccoli, five-ish pieces of chicken, two red peppers, and a little bit of corn and carrot, along with the noodles.
Even though it all tasted good, there wasn't enough for a whole meal for me; I was still hungry afterward. The soup could have used more of everything -- chicken, vegetables, and noodles.
And it probably isn't a good idea to drink all the broth, either. Even though the broth tasted good and didn't taste too salty to me, one bowl of it contains 96% of your USRDA of sodium.Food: Ajinomoto Tokyo Style Chicken Shoyu Ramen
