#2096: Maruchan Seimen Noukou Toro Tonkotsu

Here’s one from the Box From Japan box from March! BoxFromJapan.com is a monthly subscription service – you get 4 neat and very unique bowls of ramen sent from Japan along with a few chopsticks and a little letter! Really awesome – I’ve not gotten any that I’ve reviewed before at this point which is really quite amazing! Today it’s a shiny gold ensconced tonkotsu. Let’s have a look!

The noodle block.

Powder soup base.

A fluffy powder.

The liquid soup base sachet.

Very thick.

The solid ingredients sachet.

Spring onion and a piece of dehydrated chashu pork.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles sported a good chewiness and premium gauge; not too thick, not too thin. The broth was a creamy thick tonkotsu which almost seemed a little chowdery to me – still very good. The pork hydrated very well. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990334150.
