So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety – “A delicious tonkotsu broth! Cabbage and carrots help round out the flavor of this rich cloudy broth. We like to dress up this ramen in a more traditional way!”
Tonkotsu’s on the menu – let’s give it a try!

Feels like a dry garnish sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chili oil, shichimi, chashu, egg, sesame seed, spring onion, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Noodles were interesting – kind of like a floury Hakata thing, but it was odd; made me think that perhaps they were underdone but they weren’t. The broth was a kind of tonkotsu that leaned more towards vegetable than meaty. It wasn’t what my mind gravitates to when it comes to tonkotsu, however it was pretty good. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
