LV Nagasaki Champon - Ramen Bowl

Gack | Dec 9, 2005 09:28 PM

International Marketplace has lost their edge in the premium instant ramen sweepstakes. For a while there they had a pretty alarming variety of top-notch bowls, the kind that have four or five different packets inside and with absolutely divine flavor and texture. The best I found there was the version of Nagasaki Champon that was made by a company other than Nissin; it had both squid and octopus, and a packet that made it exceptionally creamy and luxurious. But since that time I have ordered cases of the stuff from them; it never comes in, and the other good bowls have disappeared as well. IM seems to be pushing the cheap Korean ramens and udons these days, the ones that all pretty much seem to taste the same - harshly spicy. Does anyone know of an alternative source for these premium Japanese bowls, either in LV or on the Web? 99 Ranch's soup selection is pretty meagre as well, so no dice there... Cheers.
