#936: Yamachan Tonkotsu Ramen Mild Pork Flavor Soup Base

I did a Meet The Manufacturer on Yamachan a little while back and found their products to be quite good! Here’s a new one they’ve come out with – a mild Tonkotsu! Sounds excellent! Thanks to the folks at Yamachan in San Jose, California for sending this! Now, to the review!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The noodle blocks, although they’re not very blocky! Fresh and nice looking!

Here’s the soup base.

They also sent bamboo shoots, aka ‘menma.’ Click image to enlarge.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onions, thinly sliced ham, minced garlic, hard boiled egg, kizami shoga (pickled ginger, menma, and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are very nice – a little chewy and firm of backbone but gentle and giving as well. The broth is extremely good. Strong notes of pork and a very comforting flavor makes the noodle and broth pair exquisite., This is wonderful stuff – go find it (I’ve seen Yamachan products it in the cold case at 99 Ranch Market as well as Uwajimaya in the Seattle area)! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars!

How to make and share Yamachan ramen!

Drumming at a Japanese festival in San Jose, California – lot of stamina to do this stuff!


  1. More of a question. My girlfriend and 1 have a sushi shop in montreal. Being that there are do many and ramen is so good. With no really good shop in the city. We’ve decided to make it a Ramen shop. We are looking for the best white base stock available. We made our own boiling pork bone. But it’s very time and energy consuming. So if you know where we can acquire some I’d appreciate it. Thx

    1. You can contact NISHIMOTO TRADING CO, LTD. They have an office in montreal. They can get you yamachan ramen pork and chicken soup base ( Tonkotsu soup base). If you are having hard time getting a hold of them let me know
