So the first ‘Generation 3’ varieties I tried was the chicken flavor from this range and I was thoroughly impressed. Today, I’m going to sample the tonkotsu. Let’s just rip into it and give it a taste!
Vite Ramen Garlic Pork Tonkotsu PROTOTYPE v1.3 – United States
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Contains pork. To prepare, they sent along v1.3 specific instructions: cook for 3 minutes in 2 1/2 cups water. Take off heat and add everything in. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block. Has a nutty aroma.
A bag of soup base.
An oil sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added homemade chashu, spring onion, shichimi, La-Yu Chili Oil, mung bean sprouts, narutomaki, and sesame seed. As usual, a nice and hearty noodle with a unique and enjoyable tooth. The broth is a rich pork one, light on the saltiness (they mention augmenting with your choice of sodium, I went with Pappy’s Garlic Herb Seasoning). For something that is supposed to be a health food crossed with a ramen noodle soup, this just sings to me – it has come a long way over the years and I’m very impressed with it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. No bar code.
