Here’s what they had to say about this one -‘The series Itsumo no Ippai (いつもの一杯) from Toyo Suisan is one that we like to keep an eye on, because it often goes under the radar. They aren’t famous for releasing original flavors, but rather making classics excellent, like this Wonton soy sauce tonkotsu ramen (ワンタン麺) with smooth noodles and pork flavor base with vegetables and garlic. Wonton noodles are originally of Cantonese origin, and consist of egg noodles with a hot broth, vegetables, and the famous wonton dumplings that gave them their name. Nowadays, you can find many different regional variations of the dish, including Japanese ones! Give it a try and see for yourself!’
Shoyu and tonkotsu go together quite nicely from what I’ve tried in the past – let’s hit it.

Ah wantan and narutomaki!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, chashu, sesame seed, mung bean sprout, and spring onion. Noodle had just the lightest sponginess. The broth was really nice – an even combo of soy and tonkotsu broths that was tasty. The wantan were perfectly hydrated, and I have to give extra marks on the narutomaki which actually tasted like seafood! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901990371827.
