Here’s one from the Box From Japan box from March! BoxFromJapan.com is a monthly subscription service – you get 4 neat and very unique bowls of ramen sent from Japan along with a few chopsticks and a little letter! Really awesome – I’ve not gotten any that I’ve reviewed before at this point which is really quite amazing! Anyways, check them out! Today’s variety looks really great – here’s what Box From Japan has to say about it:
Seafood tonkotsu soup with all the flavor of a famous shop representative of Tokyo, reproduced in a concentrated soup. Rich tonkotsu soup with seafood added to it for a balanced flavor.
Alright – let’s crack it open and look inside!

The liquid soup base.
Has a really nice scent of pork.
A garnish sachet.
A meat sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and nanami togarashi. The noodles are very good – nice chewiness and body to them. The broth had a nice thickness and was truly a seafood tonkotsu – definitely tasted like seafood. The onion bits were great – never seen them like this before and they were very good. the pork was a perfect touch. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105233108.
