#2256: Goku-Uma Ramen Noodles Artificially Flavored Tonkotsu

I haven’t reviewed anything by this brand in a long time – they were ubiquitous for a while then kind of disappeared, then came back with more traditional Japanese ramen flavors. Let’s check out this tonkotsu bowl!

Detail from the side and bottom of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail of the lid (detail of the lid). To prepare, add in sachet contents and add boiling water to the fill line. Let steep covered for 3 minutes. stir and enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

A very light powder.

The vegetables sachet.

Peas and corn and carrot and onion and and and…

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, my last slice of chashu pork, hard boiled egg and spring onion. The noodles hydrated pretty well and were interesting. They seemed slightly on the spongy side although a tad chewier than most – although hydrated. The broth came out nicely – creamy and milky and a medium salty taste with a kind of pork mood to it. The bit of dehydrated vegetables that came with it hydrated pretty well, although carrot seemed out of place here. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 074410396664.
