(PRODUCT SHARING) Shin Chan’s Miso Ramen from Tochigi at METRO IPPIN

Shin Chan has got a better half & Miso excited talking about it!

I went to restock on Shin Chan’s Soy Sauce Ramen and saw something that makes me go excited. It is Shin Chan’s Miso Ramen!

Started in 1950 by Mr. Kiyoshi Imaizumi from Ashikaga in Tochigi Prefecture, Tokyo Noodle has been around for long and produces a variety of instant noodles.

Shin Chan’s Miso Ramen ($11) is from Tokyo Noodle, with 5 packets of noodles in each pack. The noodles are of medium thickness and are fried. Conveniently cooked in just 3 mins, you can add ingredients to make it a sumptuous bowl. This has a different dimension of savoriness as compared to the soy sauce variety, tasting a clearerlighter broth with sweet aftertaste.

I recommend to add lots of vegetables, in particularly sweet corn and a little butter to this miso ramen for a good tasting bowl of sweet – savory umaminess. Nothing overwhelming should be added to cover the taste of the broth.

Shin Chan’s Soy Sauce Ramen can be found at Metro Centrepoint Level 4.

There are 5 packets of noodles in each pack, and the fried noodles can be conveniently cooked in just 3 mins. It tasted really good when it absorbs the savory broth that is flavored with fragrant soy sauce. The presence of bonito in the soup base also gives the ramen an addictive umaminess.

(PRODUCT SHARING) Ajikoi Tomato Juice from Tochigi at METRO IPPIN

I know a very beautiful middle aged woman and she eats tomatoes everyday.

I get to know and try this Ajikoi Tomato Juice that is made in Japan from tomatoes of Japan Tochigi. Tochigi is famous for their production of sweet and juicy tomatoes! Ajikoi Tomato Juice comes in a set and is made with 100% fresh tomato.

Each bottle is 500ml and cost $46 or a 2 bottle gift set at $105. The tomato juice is readily to be drank directly from the bottle or you can mix your own creative beverages.

I recommend to mix the tomato juice with something citrusy, minty, and with a pinch of salt. It will be a refreshing healthy bevey that taste great!

Ajikoi Tomato Juice can also be used to make jelly and other healthy desserts. For me, I like to use this as tomato sauce for cooking in my dishes such as tomato chili chicken and tomato fried quinoa. This is definitely healthier than tomato sauce and the flavor is really good.
