“Soybean Paste Flavor, it is the delicious noodles food of Sichuan.” Awww, yes, Engrish.
Seriously, do they not have an English grammar checker, or know about Google translate although Sichuan noodles are delicious. It is also why I recommend Myojo Chukazanmai instant ramen (miso flavor) although prepare for your daily dose of sodium… and then some.
It is more on par with being a miso rather than a Sichuan style dish
I had no clue that this was supposed to be a Sichuan style dish, but what I do know and remember is that this is one of the best brands for ramen noodles due to the way they dehydrate their noodles which is along the same lines of how Italian pasta is processed.
The noodles are what separates this instant noodles from cheaper versions
The deep-fried noodles are spongy whereas the non-fried stuff has actual body to them, so I highly suggest you stay away from the fried stuff.
The ingredients list
Noodles: Wheat Flour, Starch (Potato), Food Starch-Modified, Salt, Palm Oil, Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Metaphosphate, Potassium Carbonate, Alginic Acid, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Guar Gum.

I’ve got a headache from way too much sodium
I rarely get headaches, but eating instant ramen multiple days in a row, along with eating a product with 2,580 mg of sodium (112% of your daily value on a 2,000 calorie diet) put me over the top.
If you want to know how that compares with other products, here is a small sampling:
|Myojo Miso Ramen||2,580 mg||112%|
|Paldo Hwa Ramyun||1,870 mg||81%|
|Nissin Cup Noodles||1,160 mg||51%|
|Digiorno Rising Crust Supreme Pizza||860 mg||37%|
|Chef Boyardee Raviolis (15oz)||780 mg||34%|
|Campbell’s Red and White Chicken Noodle Soup||480 mg||20%|
|Coca Cola (16oz)||45 mg||2%|
It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten this much instant ramen
Time to take a break because I feel eff’d up, and if you want to know what it is like, here is a list of symptoms.
You might have certain symptoms that lead your doctor to suspect that your sodium level may be too high or too low. You might be confused, forgetful, or have problems with reasoning. Other symptoms your doctor may watch for include:– WebMD
Muscle cramps or twitching
Shortness of breath
Swelling or fluid buildup in certain parts of your body
If you’re looking for a second diagnosis, NDTV also has their “6 signs that you are consuming too much salt.”
Conclusion on my thoughts of Myojo Chukazanmai Instant Ramen
A sodium (Na) bomb, time to rest my achy headachy head.
*After my nap* and putting off work for today due to my headache, I finally decided to finish this post.
Aside from the high sodium content, the flavor is good, but of course compared to real miso ramen, it lacks an intense savoriness that real ramen has although it’s not bad for the price and being an instant version.
