Ahh...... it’s simple and the one that nobody would care......
Don’t say that nobody would care! You’ve never wondered why, Boss? Why do Japanese people put cheese on top of curry & rice??
It’s just because it tastes more delicious with it, no?
I’m just curious how delicious it is!!!

If you are that curious...... why don’t we try it?
Let’s eat curry & rice with cheese on top!

Alright then, here it is. It’s a cup noodle with cheese curry flavor that everybody likes!

I love it~!!!
By the way, you haven’t put cheese on top of curry & rice or eaten something with curry flavor?
Nope...... I don’t know if it would taste good. Plus, I can’t eat spicy curry......
It doesn’t have to be a spicy curry, though!
How about you, Boss? Do you put cheese on top of curry & rice?
I sometimes do. Well, let’s give it a try now!
Already!! Bon Appetit!!!

Cheese as a topping changes its smell? Taste? Or aftertaste?

How did you like it?
It’s much better than I had expected!!!
What kind of taste did you expect before you ate?
Well...... Since I basically like curry-flavor cup noodles, I thought it would change the whole taste to cheese flavor, which I don’t like...... But I can still taste curry and I think cheese actually makes it milder and more delicious!
Yep. It doesn’t have to be only curry but by adding cheese as a topping makes the whole taste milder, deeper and richer...... When we first have a bite, we usually taste the ingredient itself, but then, if we put cheese, we taste cheese later on, which would not make us tired of the taste. It becomes more delicious too. For instance, hamburg steak is one of the examples of that.
I’ve heard that the humburg steak that has cheese inside and the one that has cheese (sauce) on top taste different...... although they are the same cheese......
Maybe because how the juice from the meat and cheese combine is different, which might taste different. To me, I like the one with cheese inside better, which best harmonizes with juice from the meat~!! It depends on the type of cheese but basically, cheese matches with any food, which makes the food more delicious!

Q. Why Do Japanese People Put Cheese on Top of Curry & Rice?
A. Because it’s tastier that way!
Again, Cup Noodle Cheese & Curry Flavor that I tried today was so good~! Unlike I expected, I still tasted the original curry taste with mildness and richness as aftertaste too! If you haven’t tried it yet, why don’t you give it a try??
FYI, it’s so good if you put a soft-boiled egg into curry-flavor cup noodle! Why don’t you try that too~?
