Have you ever wanted to have a late night snack because you felt really hungry in the middle of the night?
Whether you are feeling lazy or don't have enough time to cook, Sapporo Ichiban miso flavor is up to feed your craving.
It is my favourite fallback comfort food. It's easy to prepare and filling, so it is perfect as a late night night snack.

Believe it or not, this company, ironically, doesn't have any office or factory in Sapporo.
The president of Sanyo Foods, Takeshi Ida named the noodles brand name, Sapporo Ichiban in 1961 because he was impressed by the taste of Sapporo ramen when he traveled to Hokkaido.
Did you know that?
This miso flavor debuted in store in 1968.
It is a classic instant ramen, which has excellent flavor.
Let's dig in...
Each value pack comes with 5 individually wrapped packets
Beautiful miso-colored packaging
Let's open one pack
Unlike the Roah series, these do not have brown grainy specks on them.
Which means, they are not made from whole wheat flour.
Smooth noodles - characteristics of fried noodles.
This package has two flavor packets. One is a miso soup base...
... the other packet is shichimi togarashi (hot peppers).
It gives this instant noodles a bit of spice.
Cooking Directions (from the package):
Optional: Try adding an egg, vegetables, and meat as desired.
The taste of this miso flavor will linger in your mouth for hours after you finish eating these soup noodles because the broth is very tasty.
The spice packets add a kick to this savory and umami bliss of soup. This broth pairs well with many kinds of toppings. I recommend putting a lot of vegetables.
Let’s be honest...
The miso taste is mild and light, so you may feel like it doesn’t taste like regular miso soup. But you can enjoy this broth with the noodles, as I feel like they go well together.
But know this, Sapporo Ichiban miso flavor does not taste like miso ramen from a seasoned ramen shop.
If you are looking for the taste of miso ramen from a restaurant, here is a quick and easy tip:
Put some fresh miso paste into the soup.
It has a good flavor and has the characteristic chewiness of fried instant noodles.
In fact, they have a lot more bite than the usual soggy ones. Very smooth and a true comfort food.
With this spice packet, the noodles taste good, but additional toppings make it great!
But wait – there're toppings that I recommend.
My Thoughts Overall ★★★★☆
Trust me. It’s worth it.
It is an affordable option, that does not skimp out on quality.
Do you want to try a new flavor?
If you are looking for break from the beef, pork, chicken or oriental flavor noodles, but you don't want to raise your budget, these noodles are the perfect choice for you.
It has a very long shelf life, so it makes storing these noodle packages much easier.
Imagine eating these yummy noodles for lunch or midnight snack. They are great to stock up on in your cupboard for emergency situations, like snow days!
