I could have a whole category on this blog of things that taste like sushi. This little number would be right up there at the top of the list, it is delicious, well that goes without saying of course its delicious or I wouldn't of gone to the bother of telling you about it. So what else? well it feels a little bit fancy because of the smoked salmon, its good for you and the ramen noodles are earthy and sexy and its perfectly finished with nutty toasted sesame seeds. I am in love.
