54. Nissin Top Ramen – Soy Sauce Flavor


This soy sauce flavor was previously known as “oriental flavor” and the packaging was pretty similar to this one. And what is oriental flavor anyways?


Cooking directions –

  1. Boil 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Add noodles, breaking up if desired. Cook for 3 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in seasonings from flavor packet. To lower sodium, use less seasoning.

Since the exact quantity of water wasn’t mentioned, I used about 220ml of water hoping and praying this much would be enough for this pack.


A standard sized wheat noodle block although the texture of these noodles however does look different.

The seasoning sure has an interesting aroma and color. Smells oniony with a hint of spiciness and I can see a few green flakes which I am guessing is leek.


Simple looking noodles are my favorite.

The noodles were way too salty but OM the G the texture of these noodles is brilliant! So 220 ml of water is perfect as the noodles came out to be slightly firmer with a great chew to them. And this is just the way I like them.

However, the saltiness if brutal and I couldn’t taste any other flavor honestly.


Mushrooms are my safest bet for anything “oriental flavor” so I sautéed some shrooms in butter and pepper (well I should have avoided butter since that made the mushrooms salty but little did I know that the broth would be so extremely salty).

Unfortunately I gave up on this plate of noods after about 5-6 bites. This dish gets an additional point only because of the quality of the noodles.

Looking forward to trying other flavors from the same line because bomb noods.

  1. I love these noddles, so easy to make, quick when you don’t have enough time to cook a whole meal! In my case, I make my own seasoning recipe; onion powder, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, a tiny bit a of cumin, and a little bit of my homemade sazón! (All purpose seasoning) Tastes great!

  2. You are supposed to use 2 cups of water which is equivalent to about 473 ml according to the package instructions. If you make this in the future and use 220 ml of water maybe try 1/2 the seasoning packet.
