There is nothing surprising about this combination as Kakaige Tempura udon are commonly available on the shelves of Japanese supermarkets. What makes this better is that the Kakaige Tempura is very thick in texture and therefore more crunchy. It has an intense onion aroma to it which boost the bonito flavour of the broth.
Nongshin Tempura Udon is an udon ramyun with deep and refreshing udon soup whose taste is made with katsuobushi, seaweed and tempura flakes.
Addiction warning - This is one of Japan's most popular instant noodles and it is hard to switch to any other instant noodle after tasting this one. Soy based, it comes with a generous piece of fried toufu which makes the meal seem more complete instead of just having plain carbo. This pot of chewy, thick udon noodles comes with a separate savoury udon soup sachet and shichimi spice sachet as well.
