I tried 'Nissin Donbei Special Yuzu Pepper Salt-Grilled Udon' with a refreshing yuzu scent and spicy green chili peppers.

When I opened the lid, there was a packet of liquid soup and a special yuzu pepper paste inside. The toppings were already included with the noodles.

Pour boiling water up to the inside line and let the liquid soup warm on the lid for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes, discard the hot water from the drain.

Remove the lid and pour in the liquid sauce and mix well.

Finally, add the special yuzu pepper paste and mix to finish.

As soon as I tried the noodles, the refreshing aroma of yuzu spread across my tongue, and I could feel the sharp spiciness of the green chili peppers. The soup base was a combination of chicken and bonito stock, so it had a light flavor, but the yuzu pepper paste gave it a punchy taste.
