Most of us would turn to instant noodles as our last resort; For me, personally, I only have instant noodles to satisfy my late night hunger pangs. And trust me, this happens pretty often. I’m sure I’m not the only one! To help all my supper loving friends, I’ve compiled a list of the most Oishi Japanese instant ramen you must stock up when you visit Japan!

 

#7. Ichiran Ramen

Evident in the daily long queues formed by locals & tourists, Ichiran Ramen chain of restaurants is one of the most famous ramen chain in Japan. Imagine our excitement when Ichiran released its own brand of instant noodles; this means we can reminisce the taste of Ichiran even after leaving Japan! Whoaaa…

The tasty broth from this instant ramen is often raved by foodies, so it’s no surprise that they are one of the most popular instant noodle brand in Japan. Top these noodles off with a few slices of meat, and it would probably taste like the real deal from the Ichiran Ramen restaurants in Japan!

#6. Nissin Chilli Tomato Cup Noodle (approx 206 Yen)

Nissin Foods Corporation is the first company that introduced instant ramen noodles to Japan, so you can imagine the history and experience Nissin Foods Corporation has! The locals love the tomato based soup, and also raved about the delicious seasoning that comes with this instant noodles.

#4. Nissin Gozen Kitsune Udon

This is another product from the pioneers of Japanese instant noodles, Nissin Foods Corporation! What makes this instant udon special, is the chunk of fried tofu that comes with it! We certainly have not seen any other instant noodle packet with such a special treat! To the surprise of many foodies, the tofu tastes extremely delectable; its certainly worth a try.

#3. Maruchan Midori No Tanuki Instant Soba Bowl

The Japanese certainly know the way to my stomach! This noodles comes along with tempura! The combination of buckwheat noodles, with a round disk of tempura would definitely satisfy all of my late night supper cravings.

#2. Nissin Raoh Backfat Rich Soy Sauce Flavor

This is another local favorite, courtesy of Nissin! The tinge of soy sauce gives the broth a fragrant taste, and will make you come back for more! The Nissin Raoh Rich Soy Sauce noodles are also said to be extremely thin, but still comes with perfect chewiness and consistency. One amazing thing about this packet of instant noodles, is that it comes with an actual slice of pork fillet! We would never be able to find this in Singapore 🙁

Our requestor also tried the porkbone flavour that’s popular on Airfrov.

#1. Ippudo Instant Ramen

Ramen lovers rave about how this instant ramen comes very close to the real Ippudo ramen sold in Japan’s restaurant. This instant ramen also comes with its own slice of pork, and the broth tastes like it has been boiled for several hours, just like the real deal!
