#2190: Myojo Barikata Noukou Tonkotsu Shoyu

Here’s another one from Javier over at BoxFromJapan.com! Box From Japan is a subscription service – you can get a box of ramen (and candy too) from Japan every month for $25. I can honestly say I still haven’t gotten a variety I’ve reviewed before from them – something pretty amazing! Here’s what they had to say about this variety:

The Noodles: Noodles with a harmony of hardness, straightness, and thinness. The rich soup accentuates the unique noodles. The noodles have a floury quality while still being ramen shop-esque. They are non-fried noodles with an added hardness and al dente quality. The Soup: We first added soy sauce, garlic, and ginger to a pork bone extract base. We then combined the mixture with a potherb blended pork oil to achieve a rich, smooth pork bone soy sauce flavor. The soup’s compatibility with the noodles is extraordinary. The Toppings: We focused mainly on roast pork, adding bamboo shoots and green onions, plus sweet red pepper for color.

Awesome! Let’s check it out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, hard boiled egg and chashu pork. The bowl was done so fast (literally sixty seconds) and the noodles were just perfect. This and definitely had a floury flavor to them – reminisent of Hakata style. The broth was like a gravy – a sloppy tasty wonderful gravywith some amazing flavor. The bits of vegetables were decent as well. The only problem I had with this one was the slice of pork, which was a little on the rubbery side with a kind of over seasoned thing going on. Aside from that, this was a top ten bowl. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4902881421553.
