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 – “It’s on the cover, you can’t miss it: butter. What dish doesn’t butter make better? Okay, maybe a few, but in this case, this miso butter ramen is on point! It comes with a rich soup finished with a delicious butter block, just the right amount to make you want more!
It’s part of the nomihosu (飲み干す一杯) series, “drinking cup”, which is known for its drinkable broth! For those of you who’ve tried some restaurant ramen, you know how heavy some broth can be: and very salty on top of that, making it hard to finish drinking them at times. But not this one!
Butter in a miso ramen is quite uncommon, but goes really well together and gives it a unique flavor. The soup is thick but smooth like butter. You’ll find some green onions and chili peppers to give it a bit of an accent and tighten the flavors together when you eat your noodles.”
Ah – another one with a little thing of dehydrated butter. Fascinating – let’s take a look!

Loose bits from the cup.
A sealed mini container with a pat of butter.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, narutomaki, spring onion, mung bean sprouts,. Noodle was pretty good – a little thicker gauge than usual. The broth was a rich miso. Once the butter was added that really poured on the fake butter taste and I wasn’t particularly fond of that. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901071239824.
