Here’s one from the April offering of Box From Japan! This looks like one big bowl of tonkotsu! Let’s have a look inside! By the way – Box From Japan is a really great way to get some instant noodles you probably haven’t ever tried before, nor in a million years wouldn’t have access to here in the USA. With that, let’s crack this bog one open!

The liquid sachet.
Has a nice garlic scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kizami shoga and chashu pork. The noodles are definitely high in quantity, although seemed a little more dough-y than I would have liked. The broth is a nice tonkotsu – good thickness and flavor to it. A slight bit on the salty side however which detracted a little from it’s richness. The supplied vegetables hydrated well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071237202.
