Relish the unforgettable richness and aroma of the perfect pick-me-up - Georgia's Emerald Mountain Blend, enhanced with slightly sweetened milk.
An offshoot of the Coca-Cola Company, Georgia Coffee is the world's first ready-to-drink coffee brand that was first launched in Japan in 1975. Today, it is the world's No. 1 ready-to-drink coffee brand.
ICHIRAN HAKATA-STYLE THIN NOODLES
If you have not had a taste of the famous Ichiran ramen, here is your chance.
It is a popular Fukuoka-based ramen chain offering Hakata-style tonkotsu ramen with pork bone broth soup, which has many branches within and outside of Japan.
Expect thin straight noodles made by experienced noodle artisans using rare wheat flour, producing a pleasant, chewy and slippery texture.
Meanwhile, the broth is characterised by a rich umami taste.
The secret of Ichiran ramen's success lies in the red powder that has an exquisite taste balance, thanks to a mix of spices and Ichimi Togarashi (red chilli pepper).
So grab a pack of Ichiran Hakata-style Thin Noodles ($14.90 per pack, usual price $19.90) to cook up an authentic tasty ramen for two in just minutes.
NISSIN FROZEN SANUKI UDON CURRY FLAVOUR
Upgrade your supper options with Nissin Frozen Sanuki Udon Curry Flavour ($8.50 per pack).
Listed as one of Japan's three most famous types of udon noodles, Sanuki Udon's firm, chewy texture is achieved by using a specific type of wheat traditionally grown in the Kagawa prefecture.
All it takes is a few minutes over the stove for a delicious, hearty meal.
