#1987: Nissin Yokohama Walker Iekei Ramen

Here’s another interesting bowl sent by Javier over at www.BoxFromJapan.com, a great subscription service! You get 4 bowls a month from Japan – they also do candy! Definitely check ’em out! This one says it’s a tonkotsu with chicken fat? Interesting. Let’s give it a go!

The noodle block.

The liquid base sachet.

Has a rich scent; reminiscent of miso actually.

The vegetables sachet.

Meat and vegetables!

A sachet of nori.


Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and S&B nanami togarashi. The noodles are very nice – high quality and fresh feel. The broth has a milky kind of miso and tonkotsu feel to it, and then that chicken fat that gives it extra body and character with a rich taste and good oiliness. The garnish definitely satisfies – good sized vegetable and the meat was a very nice bonus, as was the nori which added a good taste to the broth. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. 4902105239131.
