We interrupt your regular programming for an impromptu review of Uni-President’s “The King of Tomato” instant noodle/ramen cup.
This cup noodle was taken out of its natural habitat and cooked on the stove with an addition of two eggs. The noodles were ordinary, but the soup was delicious. It had a rich tomato taste and tomato, as you are aware, is rich in glutamic acid, one of the key umami providing compounds in food. Every sip of soup provided a wave of umami flavours to my senses and left me wanting for more. The packet included these little soft egg bits which were a bit weird, a bit fishy, and no substitute for real egg.
