Light stuff.

An oil sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, and fried garlic. The vermicelli came out nice and soft. As always, I do a couple cross-cuts with a pair of kitchen scissors to make it easier to enjoy. The broth has a light pork taste to it, great oiliness, and the vegetables and TVP that were supplied hydrated nicely as an accompaniment. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8934563978150.

I’m really excited about these – got 5 different varieties from Nissin Thailand – always looking for anything kid related when it comes to instant noodles!

#2207: Nissin Big Cup Noodles Tonkotsu Flavour

#2206: Nissin Deka Buto Kuro M-yu Tonkotsu

Here’s another one sent to me by Javier from Box From Japan. Box From Japan has subscriptions for all sorts of neat Japanese things. I regret to say that I was informed that they won’t be taking subscriptions for their ramen boxes for now – hopefully that will start again soon. He mentioned that you can purchase instant noodles from them here. Here’s what he had to say about this particular variety:

Large portion of intensely flavored thick noodles that you’ll get totally hooked on. Noodles: Straight, thick noodles. Texture is smooth and a bit hard. Soup: Thick pig feet soup with a black sesame oil aroma. The noodles mix well in this soup. Ingredients: Ground beef, toasted sesame seeds, chives, and red chili pepper.

Sounds interesting – let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains meat. To prepare, add powder sachet and boiling water to fill line. cover for 4 minutes. Add in liquid sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

A very light powder.

The liquid base.

Interesting scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are thick and have a really great chewiness to them – really good stuff! The broth is a rich pork tonkotsu, and the augmentation of the hamburger and vegetables are really impressive. It’s quite tasty and premium – wouldn’t have expected hamburger as a tonkotsu garnish would be so good! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105238479.

#2205: Maruchan Bowl Taste Of Asia Hearty Pork Flavor Tonkotsu Ramen

Tonkotsu is probably my favorite traditional ramen flavor. This and creamy broth with pork. Can’t beat it. Well, it’s now available from Maruchan in the USA in this bowl form! Let’s see how it fares!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains meat. To prepare, add in sachet #1 and room temperature water to the fill line. Microwave at 1000 watts for 3 minutes (if you have a microwave with different wattage, use this tool to convert the cooking time). Add in contents of sachet #2. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The first of two sachets.


Sachet number two.

Lots of fluffy powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, chashu pork and chilli flake. The noodles are thin and flat with a very light chew to them. The sheer amount of noodles is pretty amazing! The broth is definitely tonkotsu, but I feel it doesn’t have the right… Something. Instead of a milky and rich pork taste, I get a more salty and chicken flavor. It is thicker than most instants here in the USA that’s for certain. The vegetables hydrated very well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789003516.
