Cup foods 6

3 Japanese Shirunashi Cup Noodles (汁なし)

We don’t want to eat hot cup foods in the summer. So Japanese have developed cup noodles without hot soup.  These are called “Shirunashi” noodles and are different from Tsukemen.

Today, I introduce 3 type of Shirunashi cup noodles.

Shirunashi men Zero (汁なし麺0)

“Shirunashi” means no soup.
This cup foods is great for dieters! Because, the noodle has zero gram of carbohydrate😮, only 48kcal! This cup noodle made of agar and konnyaku powder. 

What is this ?


The noodles are not enough…
This is for kind a snack. I guess I won’t get full.

How's taste?


The texture is slightly rubbery. Taste is sour soy sauce as same as generally Hiyashi Chuka

But…I do not like this noodle texture. soup is Ok though.

Hiyashi Bukkake (冷やしぶっかけうどん)

Hiyashi Bukkake Udon
“Hiyashi” means cold. “Bukkake” means to throw water over one. 

This type of noodle takes time. Because, it needs to drain hot water and also it needs wash the noodles in water for cool down well like a Tsukemen.

 So we can eat this at home only.

What is this ?

I failed….I put ingredients in at first by mistake😥
I should have to put them later. (But it was OK.)

How's taste?

Hiyashi Bukkake Udon

Taste looks like the Teriyaki. It was disgusting because we never eat teriyaki flavored noodles😣

I do not like this.

Shirunashi Tantanmen (汁なし担々麵)


This is also Shiru nashi ramen, but Tantanmen (担々麵).

This noodle is inspired from Nakiryu, a Michelin starred ramen restaurant, Otsuka district next Ikebukuro in Tokyo.

Nakiryu (鳴龍)

“Naki” means howl. “ryu”means dragon.

When you clap at a particular spot in a room with a dragon ceiling painting, it causes vibrations.
It seems this vibrations like a dragon howl, so that we call this dragon as “Nakiryu”

I think the restaurant was named after the phrase “so good that dragons howl.

What is this ?


Pouring hot water and steam for 5 minutes.  Mixing both bags in front into cups after drained hot water.

How's taste?


I’ve eaten there many times before it became famous because it’s close to my house. it’s a unique spice and addictive tantan noodle🤩The texture is similar to that of instant raw noodles.

Today I introduced cold cup noodles. We usually eat spicy foods in summer like tropical countries. 
These types are not in overseas. When you go to Japan, try to eat them😋
