 UDON noodles are made from wheat flour. They are boiled and served in a broth, usually hot but somtimes  cold in summer. Udon is topped with ingredients such as a raw egg to make tsukimi udon, and deep-fried tofu aburaage to make kitsune udon.  SOBA is buckwheat noodles thinner and darker in color than udon. Soba is usually served cold (zaru soba) with a dipping sauce, sliced green onions and wasabi. When served in a hot broth, it is known as kake soba.  RAMEN is thin egg noodles almost always served in a hot broth flavored with shoyu or miso. This is topped with a variety of ingredients such as slices of roast pork (chashu), bean sprouts (moyashi), sweetcorn and butter.  It’s not just instant ramen — Sapporro has corn-butter ramen and Kyushu has Tonkotsu ramen.

There are 15 one-serving bundles in one pack. And the taste isn’t bad. It certainly is better than Shirakiku’s cheap soba noodles. Oddly, this turned out to be a Product of Korea! The label though is in Japanese and English.

Ingredients: Wheat Flour, Tapioca Starch, Buckwheat, Salt, Water

OK, so there’s not much buckwheat content in it, but it works for a quick meal.
