I love Ippudo, but I’m not sure what to make of this instant version. It’s quite impressive that they’ve even tried to duplicate the famous bowl in this flash-fried version, but it’s not what you’d expect. Or is it?
I don’t know. It just didn’t do it for me. I think I’ll stay away from this one. I recommend you only try it if you’re desperate for something quick and only have time to stop at 7-11 (in Japan that is). Even then, I’d probably prefer Goota.
