The place where I opened the lid looks like this. You can see dried seasoned chicken, sliced red pepper, and green onions. Also, at this point, you can feel the strong scent of yuzu.

Pour an appropriate amount of hot water and wait 4 minutes.

After 4 minutes, remove the lid ...

Sprinkle with awakening sesame oil.

If you stir well as it is, it will be completed

When I first sipped the soup, the refreshing aroma of yuzu passed through my nose, and I could feel the sharp spiciness of chili peppers along with the umami of chicken and seafood. However, it is not just a soup that stimulates the sensation of pain, but the taste of the soup remains firmly after the spiciness has subsided, and it has a lingering taste.

The noodles are thin straight noodles. The texture and aroma peculiar to noodles using whole grain flour is perfect for the aroma of spicy soup and yuzu. The spiciness itself is at the level of 'certainly it is impossible for people who are not good at spicy foods', but it is not so spicy that it cannot be eaten. Some of the spicy ramen is just 'painful', but the taste of the soup and noodles is firmly felt, and the aroma of yuzu produces a refreshing aftertaste, which is said to be quite complete. I was impressed.
