すみれ (Sumire) Instant Ramen しょうゆ味 – 札幌ラーメン

The Sumire instant ramen comes in three flavors: shoyu, shio, and miso. The miso is their signature ramen, but I still opted to only buy the shoyu since I’m not much of a miso fan. As I write this though, I’m beginning to regret that I didn’t buy the miso. Luckily for me, I’ll be able to try the miso this weekend at the Mitsuwa Legendary Ramen Fair. Sweet!


The contents include a pack of yellow noodles, menma, two pouches for the soup, and a picture of すみれや.


This oily Sapporo-style soup was incredibly strong…and strange. This thick sardine flavored soup with just a dash of shoyu tasted like I was drinking fish blood. Very different, but I could get used to it…I think.


The noodles were tastier than the soup. Their chewy texture probably saved the soup. I can’t wait to taste the miso this weekend.

Main Ingredients

Soup (スープ): Soy sauce, animal oil, chicken extract, vegetable oil, pork extract, salt, spice, vegetable extract, shiitake extract, sardine extract, caramel color, monosodium glutamate…
Noodles (メン): Flour, egg white, kansui, salt, sake, color…
