Japanese instant noodle

Instant SOBA noodle in cup

As you also have your own instant noodle culture, we Japanese have it!!

Because, when we see the history of instant noodle in CUP, I can say it’s a Japanese culture!! – at least a lot of Japanese believe it, although I’m not sure whether somebody say NO or not.

The first instant noodle in cup was developed by Nissin food company in Japan 1971, the name is “CUP NOODLE”. I know the “CUP NOODLE” series is soled in all over the world, then the taste and others has originality by each country.

For example, Japanese and other Asian countries CUP NOODLE has long length noodle, but Europe one is short, like pasta, isn’t it? So CUP NOODLE is very famous and popular miracle brand of food, anyway.

Just for refer, there are a lot of instant noodle in cup manufacture in Japan as well as other countries. I introduce big 5 companies in this field in Japan.

1: Nissin ( [CUP NOODLE] )

2: Toyo-suisan (Maru-chan)

3: Myo-jyo 

4: Sanyo ( Sapporo ichiban)

5: Ace cock

FYI : the noodle in cup you saw in the movie is Sanyo food made, the name “Curry Nanban SOBA”.

As you can see, the UDON is in hot soup that made from bonito stock.

And Japanese prefer this simple design bowl, name Donburi, for eating UDON!! And also it’s important to decorate well, although it’s same with other countries dish, yes?

UDON is very healthy because low calorie, quick digested, and reasonable price, haha!!
