Here’s one of those ‘dilemma’ noodles. I don’t know what the heck it is called and the bar code yields absolutely no results which are annoying. Luckily, I do have the resource of my readers and asked on the Facebook page for The Ramen Rater. A few people got they were tonkotsu, which is very helpful, although usually, ones like this are some kind of tonkotsu – like a little more detailed. But people were of the belief this was just their standard tonkotsu. Thanks for the info! Let’s dig in
Acecook Tonkotsu – Japan

Loose bits and seasoning.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, barbecue pork, shichimi togarashi, spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles had a kind of off texture to them – a little tough. The broth was way saltier than was necessary. Very underwhelming. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071282837.
