(PRODUCT SHARING) Instant Noodles in Seafood Dashi Soup at METRO IPPIN

Are you a Somen, Ramen or Udon kind of person?

I always have this question in mind whenever I’m at IPPIN to buy these instant noodles that come with seafood dashi stock.

With these noodles being ‘slurpplicious’, I have the tendency to buy all of them at once. The real headache is I’m always tied to choose my favorite or what to cook for the day; end up cooking all the 3 and overeating happily.

The one in black is Udon with Seafood Dashi Soup ($12). This thin udon has a chewy texture and the broth comes with it has a tinge of spice compared to the other 2.

Came delicately in white, this is Somen with Seafood Dashi Soup ($12). Somen is the softest of the 3, and goes really well with the instant soup provided. There are flavors of chicken and leek in the soup, giving this bowl of japanese somen a homely touch.

Bright in red but nothing spicy, this Ramen with Seafood Dashi Soup is the favorite of my family. It has good springy texture that most instant ramen lack. I love to add an egg, bean sprouts and plenty of corn to the ramen when I have mood for a more elaborated meal.

(PRODUCT SHARING) Kelp Powder Tea Kombucha at METRO IPPIN

It is a discovery everytime I’m at IPPIN!

Kombucha also known as tea mushroom is a fermented, slightly alcoholic and effervescent black or green tea drink. This is intended as a functional beverage with its claimed health benefits such as anti aging, relieve atherosclerosis, constipation, and diabetes, thou no evidence has shown to support these.

This kombucha tea I’m sharing has added kelp powder, salt and sugar to a perfect cup of tasty beverage. Kelp is a type of seaweed that is believed to be a superfood with good source of iodine and other trace minerals. Adding kelp powder to your diet may provide health benefits such as lowering of blood sugar, LDL cholesterol and cancer risk.

You can find this Kelp Powder Tea Kombucha ($11) at Metro Paragon (lvl 2) & Metro Centrepoint (lvl 4) IPPIN section for a great daily drink or thoughtful little gift to your love ones.
