Here’s an interesting one from Japan found in a Zenpop box – check out zenpop.jp and use the coupon code RAMENRATER for a discount!
Here’s what they had to say about it – “Toyo Suisan is in it for the local flavors. This town this taste, あの街この味！That’s the series they are developing to bring you flavors from across Japan. Just released this month, on August 9th, these Fukuoka edition hakata fried ramen are a treat from your senses. Hakata ramen (博多ラーメン) is a specialty in Kyushu, the larger south-western island of Japan, and originated in the city of Fukuoka. You may know it as a type of tonkotsu ramen, as it is called in the rest of Japan. Hakata is the historical name of central Fukuoka. The fried noodles from our Fukuoka Hen Hakata Yaki Ramen are thin noodles with lovely texture and their recognizable yellow color coming from the use of kansui (かんすい) in the preparation. The noodles are a perfect match for the pork bone-flavored sauce and ready in one minute on the clock. Topped with a little sesame oil, the broth is a savory delight.”
Okay so it only takes one minute to cook and it’s tonkotsu flavored yakisoba? Let’s give it a try immediately, if not sooner!
