#1809: Marutai Nagahama Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen

Here’s another one that was sent to me by Javier over at Box From Japan – thanks! Box From Japan is a subscription service – you can get a box sent to you every month with some great noodles within! From what I’m reading, it sounds like this one has a tonkotsu broth – with pork bone flavor! Let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains pork. To prepare, add sachet contents to bowl and boiling water to fill line. Cover and let steep for 2 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Dry soup base.

Very fluffy powder.

A liquid sachet.

Has a pork kind of scent.

A solid ingredients sachet.

Looks like spring onion and sesame in there.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a lone slice of chashu pork. The noodles are thin and have a nice chew to them. Probably some of the best noodles I’ve samples in a bowl. The broth is a creamy pork tonkotsu – savory and rich. The sesame and spring onion add a perfect balance. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902702004200.
