Maruchangan Ramen noodles are among the most sought-after in China.
The noodle restaurant chain is famous for the spicy noodles, and has been offering them at a premium for years.
But in China, it’s not just the noodles that are expensive.
The noodles are also high in salt.
The brand has been under fire recently for its poor service.
In the last two years, the chain has faced a series of controversies.
In 2015, the authorities launched a crackdown on food safety at the chain, and in 2016, authorities also banned Maruchans noodles from the country.
In February, a local court ordered the chain to shut down, saying the food in the noodle restaurants is not healthy.
The chain’s noodles were also banned in China’s capital Beijing last month, but it has since resumed selling them in a few other cities.
The noodles are often used as a substitute for rice, but the brand has long had a reputation for quality.
But the Chinese government has long denied any links to Maruchian, and a spokesperson for the brand told Al Jazeera that the company is in “very close contact” with the government.
A spokesperson for Maruchandan’s restaurant chain told AlJazeera that the noodles are sold at a “premium price” in the city, and that “the quality of the noodles has always been outstanding”.
“The noodles were made in a small factory and there is no presence of salt in the noodles,” the spokesperson said.
“However, the quality of all the ingredients in the recipe is very good.”
The spokesperson also said that the brand’s brand ambassador has been working closely with the Chinese authorities to ensure that Maruchancan is not banned.
“The brand ambassador is working with the authorities and is currently working to ensure the safety of the brand noodles,” she said.
The spokesperson said that, in the meantime, the brand is offering a special deal on Maruchas noodles for those who want to order them online.
The Chinese government does not want to be seen to be discriminating against Chinese-made products, and there are some indications that this is already happening.
Last month, the Chinese People’s Daily published an editorial calling for boycotting Maruchanyns noodles, calling the brand a “sickening, toxic and poisonous product”.
According to the editorial, the noodles were sold at the same price as rice noodles in the cities of Beijing and Shanghai.
