nissin cup noodle seafood: marine layered

Cup Noodle Seafood Noodle is the Rolls Royce of the Nissin Cup Noodle line. Well, make that the Integra Type-R, a fully loaded Japanese classic with sleek curves and quality manufactured components.

The only Cup Noodle variant readily available (on import at least) in both regular and “BIG” sizes, Seafood Noodle is one of the most popular instant noodles on the market.

One slurp and it’s easy to see why. The shio-based soup is lighter and less oily than Original Cup Noodle shoyu; it’s overwhelmingly crabby in flavor, yet mellow with a hint of sweetness akin to the seafood & shio ramen traditions of Hokkaido in Northern Japan.

Loaded with rehydrated scrambled eggs and surimi (imitation crab meat), Seafood Ramen is also reminiscent of kanitama ramen, an infrequent but entertaining assari-kei menu option in which a gigantic crab omlette, often the diamter of the bowl, is laid out atop one’s order of noodles. Surprisingly, Nissin has included slivers of real squid in the mix of toppings, although they rehydrate into something closer to squid jerky, slightly tough and uncompromising. I guess otherwise it would just be called “Crab” flavor, which - if memory serves me - was indeed a very similar item, marketed in the States, about a decade ago.

The noodles themselves are your standard, ribbon-like Cup Noodle strands. They cook up on the soft side, but maintain a fluffy consistency that pairs well with the light broth. I would venture that it’s even okay to let regular Seafood Ramen sit for a while before eating (past the three minute mark, gasp!). You get a little more heft out of the snack, and in this case, the slightly soggy noodles complement the light, sweet soup. Or you can just go “BIG” like I do.

there are a few online sites that sell the japanese cup noodle versions…

but also, if you live near a japanese supermarket, they usually stock em.

Man, looking at this “King” of all ramen noodles makes my mouth water like the fountain of life.  I miss this food!  I can’t find this here in the U.S., at least from where I’m from.  If you can tell me where to order it, i’ll be forever grateful to you.  I found one Japanese web site but they were selling it in Yen and the site was all Japanese and I could not understand it.  Please tell me where to find it.  Thank you.  Your site rocks!

i’ve found a couple of these treasures on ebay.  You’ll have to pay extra the shipping though.  other than that, the seller looks legit to me.

i’v been a regular consumer of this Nissin Cup Noodle SEAFOOD, and i do love it. i’m just concerned about the additives that they put in their product especially the level of MSG the instant noodle has.As i search thru the net about it’s nutritional content of it, i can’t find anything about the MSG level. Before i dont mind that much, but due to my pregnancy…..i’m concerned about the effects to my baby since its a processed food… i would like to know where could i get the infos i want. Plus…where exactly here in the Philipines, especifically manila area i coud buy the product in a cheap, since i usually buy them in big super markets that costs so much…

amylene, go to ebay and type nissin seafood ramen.  they sell one whole case for only about 15USD but the shipping costs about 50 dollars.  so good luck.  but it’s worth every dollar.  they’re soooo good!

hey cecille, thanks for the site.  I’ve just looked into it and it looks good.  i’m just wondering if it tastes the same as the original japanese nissin seafood version.  Have you tried this one?  Is it the same?

hi michelle, lately the ramen selection at the japanese supermarkets in LA have been kind of slim. most of the varieties have stopped being imported because they contain meat products, which the US govt banned because they got pissed that japan had banned american beef. the nissin japanese cup noodles though are fairly common. i used to get the stuff at mitsuwa or marukai; perhaps check with the staff there as to when they might restock it? let me know what they tell you!

Posted by rameniac on 05/19 at 08:21 PM

I live in LA, I went to Little Tokyo, didnt find any, Mitsuwa and Marukai, they dont have it either. You guys know a website that sells the noodles. Not the puzzle? I miss this so much. And I know somebody in Japan, shipping and 1 box is going to cost me $60.00. Maybe there’s something cheaper online.
