#2437: Nissin Raoh Nojyuku Toro Tonkotsu Ramen - Japan - The Ramen Rater - instant ramen

Here’s one I was sent by Javier from www.BoxFromJapan.com. Box From Japan is a service you can subscribe to and receive monthly boxes of instant noodle bowls from Japan! Pretty nifty. This one is a tonkotsu variant – let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about tonkotsu ramen –

Tonkotsu (豚骨, “pork bone”; not to be confused with tonkatsu) ramen usually has a cloudy white colored broth. It is similar to the Chinese baitang (白湯) and has a thick broth made from boiling pork bones, fat, and collagen over high heat for many hours, which suffuses the broth with a hearty pork flavor and a creamy consistency that rivals milk, melted butter or gravy (depending on the shop). Most shops, but not all, blend this pork broth with a small amount of chicken and vegetable stock and/or soy sauce. The noodles are thin and straight, and it is often served with beni shoga (pickled ginger). In recent years the latest trend in tonkotsu toppings is māyu (sesame oil), a blackish, aromatic oil made from either charred crushed garlic or Sesame seeds. It is a specialty of Kyushu, particularly Hakata-ku, Fukuoka (hence sometimes called “Hakata ramen“).

Alright – let’s check this fancy Nissin Raoh bowl out!

#2278 – Nissin Raoh Japanese Instant Ramen Dandan Noodles

Here’s another one from Colin from the east coast – thanks again! So to start with, a little about the originin of these noodles. You se here they’re referred to tantanmen, however they’re also dandanmein – Wikipedia, if you please:

The name refers to a type of carrying pole (dan dan) that was used by walking street vendors who sold the dish to passers-by. The pole was carried over the shoulder, with two baskets containing noodles and sauce attached at either end. As the noodles were affordable due to their low cost, the local people gradually came to call them dandan noodles, referencing the street vendors. Literally, the name translates as “noodles carried on a pole”, but may be better translated as “peddler’s noodles”.

The corresponding Japanese dish is tantan-men, a form of ramen (formally 担担麺, as in Chinese, but often written with , or with 坦 instead of 担).

A variety of English spellings are used. The first word may be either dandan, dundun or tantan, and the last word may also be spelled mein.

So this is based on street food basically. I love street food. Plus, I’m hungry. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat. To prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A large powder sachet.

Has a peanut scent.

A liquid sachet.

A deep red orange liquid.

Finished (click to enlarge).  Added spring onion, fried garlic and nanami togarashi. The noodles were luxury – thick and with a nice chew to them. The broth was very thick — more saucelike. It had a neat taste; a peanuttiness although with a mild heat and a hearty consistency. Excellent! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902105900291.
