I had not idea who/what Morizumi was, but I just assumed it was another ramen shop tie-in product. Later, I finally found it on the Nissin Japan website and I had to look up the restaurant online to find out what was so special about Morizumi. It turns out Morizumi is relatively famous as it is run by a Michelin starred chef, Mr. Morizumi himself.

1-1-1 Kasuga, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo
Closest to Suidobashi Station (about a 5 min walk)
He runs a nice little cafe that doesn't resemble your typical ramen shop as it isn't a narrow space with one long counter. His cafe is bright and roomy with tables and a nice casually decorated atmosphere. It welcomes female customers and families apparently. Anyhow, he's collaborated with Nissin to produce a very nice cup noodle that I give a two thumbs up to.
