Manufacturer’s comments

A new menu item from “Ramen Iida Shoten” is now available! The “Niboshi Ramen” has been reproduced in a cup noodle. The noodles have a smooth texture like fresh noodles and a slightly hard and crispy texture. Soy sauce soup based on the umami of niboshi (dried sardines) combined with the umami of pork and kombu (kelp). By using two types of dried sardines, one with an emphasis on umami and the other with an emphasis on aroma, you can enjoy the rich and flavorful taste.🍜

Ramen Iida Shoten is a popular and very famous restaurant located in Yugawara-cho, Kanagawa Prefecture. It is one of the most popular stores in Japan and has been actively exposed on TV and other media. It is without a doubt a store at the center of the ramen industry!

There are two separate bags. The cup contains only noodles. The “kayaku” in the first package contained two pieces of chashu pork.

Add the ingredients and kayaku from a separate bag and hot water, and wait for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, pour in the liquid soup to be added later.
It’s ready to serve!😋🤤👍


It is a soy sauce-flavored soup with the flavor of niboshi (dried sardines). Speaking of niboshi soups, there are many niboshi soups that contain a lot of niboshi powder, if not cement, without question, but this soup is a little different from that type. The soup is clear, and yet it has a strong niboshi taste and aroma in its own way.

Although one should not expect the gusto of dried sardines like the popular cement dried sardine soups, the soup is said to contain “two kinds of dried sardines, one for flavor and the other for aroma. I can’t say for sure, but I can certainly enjoy the taste and aroma of the niboshi.

The other flavors are mainly soy sauce and kelp dashi. The soy sauce has a sharp taste, but does not push out the saltiness strongly, and makes the niboshi stand up. The kelp added a mellowness to the soup as an aftertaste, and I felt it was the shadow of the key to this soup. This soup is made up of a perfect balance of niboshi, soy sauce, and kombu!

Medium-thick, straight, non-fried noodles that are ready in 5 minutes. Basically, the format is the same as that of Shomen Cup, but the noodles are a little more crispy than the elastic, multi-added noodle type that is the mainstay of Shomen Cup noodles. The chewiness feels a little higher quality.

It is a combination of two large pieces of chashu pork, bamboo shoots, and green onions. This is a high priced cup noodle that offers two pieces of chashu, which I am happy about, but I think it would have been better to have the price reduced by one piece, or to have one piece of chashu with a more premium feel instead of a generic chashu like the one in this Shomen cup or the like. That might have raised the price even more, though.

Iida Shoten Niboshi Ramen

It is a product of niboshi, which is different from the usual “Iida Shoten” with its strong chicken and soy sauce flavors. Instead of using niboshi as a powder, two kinds of niboshi, one for taste and the other for aroma, are added to the clear broth to create harmony with the soy sauce and kombu. The soup is plain, except for the two pieces of chashu pork, but it is a dish that I would like to eat slowly and calmly.😋🤤👍😁🍜🍜🍜
