#3300: Maruchan Yellow Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen - Japan

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘This is a brand new ramen just debuted. It’s an updated version of an original that came out in 1982. The simplicity of this bowl of ramen is just right and irresistible. You can taste the kikurage (wood ear mushroom) as one of the toppings. Kikurage is low in fat and calories but rich in protein and other nutrients and is a particularly good source of the B vitamins, too. The tonkotsu broth is excellent – can you taste the umami from the dried sardine? There are two chashu pork slices on top to satisfy your mouth!’

I definitely enjoy tonkotsu – let’s give this one a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, sesame seeds, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, narutomaki, and shichimi togarashi. The noodles are nice – not crazy nice but work very well here. Broth is on point tending toward the saltier side but has a very nice character to it. Inclusion of kikurage and chashu really helkp a lot. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990362696.
