So this is the second pork tonkotsu variety offered by Mike’s Mighty Good Craft Ramen – this being the non-spicy version. Let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about this style of ramen –

Ramen soup is generally made from stock based on chicken or pork, combined with a variety of ingredients such as kombu (kelp), katsuobushi (skipjack tuna flakes), niboshi (dried baby sardines), beef bones, pig bones, shiitake, and onions.

  • Tonkotsu (豚骨, “pork bone”; not to be confused with tonkatsu) soup usually has a cloudy white colored broth. It is similar to the Chinese baitang (白湯) and has a thick broth made from boiling pork bones, fat, and collagen over high heat for many hours, which suffuses the broth with a hearty pork flavor and a creamy consistency that rivals milk, melted butter or gravy (depending on the shop).

I’m a big fan of this style of ramen so let’s see how it is!

Has a sesame scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts spring onion, hard boiled egg, chashu pork and shichimi togarashi. The noodles are great – nice gauge and chew. The broth on the other hand was definitely not to my liking. It had a very acrid hit to it that I haven’t expoerienced in tonkotsu before. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars.   UPC bar code 081567702170.
