#2673: Nissin Demae Ramen Bar Noodle Hokkaido Miso Tonkotsu Flavour Instant Noodle

日清 出前一丁 #2673: Nissin Demae Ramen Bar Noodle Hokkaido Miso Tonkotsu Flavour Instant Noodle

Here’s yet another of the Demae Ramen Bar Noodle series. These have not failed to impress since the first Straight Noodle Demae Ramen varieties I tried last year. This sounds really good and I like seeing the corn in the above image. One might be surprised, but butter and sweetcorn really go incredibly well with miso ramen. This promises to be bumped up by being a tonkotsu miso – wow I’m definitely curious about this one. Here’s a little about miso as well as tonkotsu from Wikipedia –

Miso ramen is a relative newcomer, having reached national prominence around 1965. This uniquely Japanese ramen, which was developed in Hokkaido, features a broth that combines copious miso and is blended with oily chicken or fish broth – and sometimes with tonkotsu or lard – to create a thick, nutty, slightly sweet and very hearty soup. Miso ramen broth tends to have a robust, tangy flavor, so it stands up to a variety of flavorful toppings: spicy bean paste or tōbanjan (豆瓣醤), butter and corn, leeks, onions, bean sprouts, ground pork, cabbage, sesame seeds, white pepper, and chopped garlic are common. The noodles are typically thick, curly, and slightly chewy.

Tonkotsu (豚骨, “pork bone”; not to be confused with tonkatsu) soup 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).

Alright, let’s take a look and a slurp!

Where the powder is light, this dark liquid looks to be the miso component.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, chashu pork, spring onion, and corn. The noodles are just like the others – straight and they suck up the broth and just work so well with it. Chewy but not overly so. The broth was definitely a mix of tonkotsu and miso – and it works. Not red miso for sure. Very satisfying. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878850075.

#2467: Nissin Deka Buto Kimchi Pork Flavor - Japan - The Ramen Rater - Box From Japan

Here’s one sent by Javier over at Box From Japan. At Box From Japan, you can receive boxes of instant ramen from Japan as well as different subscription boxes like Japanese candy! Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? What’s more, in the two years I’ve been reviewing these, I’ve not ever received one that I’d reviewed before! This one has a unique flavor – let’s see a little more from Wikipedia –

Kimchi (/ˈkɪm/Korean김치translit. gimchiIPA: [kim.tɕʰi]), a staple in Korean cuisine, is a traditional side dish made from salted and fermented vegetables, most commonly napa cabbage and Korean radishes, with a variety of seasonings including chili powderscallionsgarlicginger, and jeotgal (salted seafood).[1][2] There are hundreds of varieties of kimchi made with different vegetables as the main ingredients.[3][4] In traditional preparations, kimchi was stored underground in jars to keep cool, and unfrozen during the winter months.[2] These days, kimchi refrigerators are used instead.

Indeed, kimchi isn’t really a staple of Japan but South Korea. Also, pork isn’t really as popular in South Korea as beef. I would consider this a kind of Japanese/Korean fusion kind of taste which sounds interesting to me. Let’s give it a whirle, Earl!

Unique and tasty. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.JAN bar code 4902105238448.

#2553: Nissin Hakata Ramen Noodle White Tonkotsu - Japan - The Ramen Rater - 日清麺ニッポン 博多とんこつラーメン

Here’s another one, sent by Javier over at Box From Japan. So boxfromjapan.com is a subscription service where you can get a box with four different instant ramen bowls sent to you directly from Japan every month! Rarely have I found a box from them with varieties I’ve reviewed before, and never have I seen varieties available here in the USA. Definitely worth a look if you’re a big fan of Japanese varieties.

Here’s a little about tonkotsu ramen from Wikipedia –

Tonkotsu ramen is a ramen dish that originated in Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture on the Kyushu island of Japan, and it is a specialty dish in Fukuoka and Kyushu. It was originally prepared as an affordable fast food for laborers at fish markets. Today, it is renowned for the significant time it can take to properly prepare the dish. The soup broth is based upon pork bones and other ingredients, which is typically boiled for several hours, and the dish is traditionally served with ramen noodles that are hard in the center and topped with sliced pork belly. In Fukuoka, Japan, tonkotsu ramen is referred to as Hakata ramen.

The soup broth for tonkotsu ramen is based upon pork bones, and “tonkotsu” means “pork bones” in Japanese.[1][2][3] The soup broth is prepared by boiling pork bones in water for a significant amount of time, up to eight hours, and the broth is typically cloudy in appearance.[1][2][4] Additional broth ingredients can include onion, garlic, spring onions, ginger, pork back fat, pig’s trotters, oil and chicken carcases.[1] For service, cooked ramen noodles and slices of roasted or braised pork belly are added, and additional ingredients can include kombu, shoyu, chili bean paste, sesame seeds and others.[1][2]

The traditional preparation method for the ramen noodles used in tonkotsu ramen is for the noodles to be hard in the center.[4] Some ramen shops allow customers to select the level of doneness for the noodles, including futsu for regular or standard, barigane for very hard, barikata for al dente and yawamen for soft.[4] Some restaurants also provide a second order of noodles if requested by the customer, in a system referred to as kaedama.[4]

Ichiran is a Japanese restaurant chain that originated and is based in Fukuoka, Japan that specifically specializes upon tonkotsu ramen.[5] Ippudo is a Japanese ramen restaurant chain based in Fukuoka that is well-known for its tonkotsu ramen, and has been described as “the most famous tonkotsu ramen shop in the country”.[4]

Tonkotsu ramen originated in Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture, which is located on the northern shore of Kyushu island of Japan, and it is a specialty dish in Fukuoka and Kyushu.[2][4] In Fukuoka, the dish is referred to as Hakata ramen’.[2] The dish is also prepared in ramen shops in other regions of Japan.[2] Tonkotsu ramen was originally prepared as an affordable and easily-prepared fast food for laborers at fish markets.[4] In contemporary times, tonkotsu ramen is renowned for the significant time it can take to prepare a proper version of the dish.[1]

Alright – with that, let’s have a look at this Nissin Japan variety ramen bowl!

They’re a thinner gauge and have a good chew and mouthfeel to them. The broth is fierce – very think. Has a kind of pork chowder consistency. The chashu was nice although I prefer the slices in the Raoh varieties produce a little more. However, it hydrated very well and had good flavor. A very nice bowl of tonkotsu! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.

#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“).

#1318: Nissin King Spa王 (Spa Oh) Tarako Spaghetti

I’ll admit when I first saw the packaging, I thought this stuff was called Spaz! I kind of wish it was as that would be exceedingly humorous, but I digress… This is Tarako Spaghetti; so what is tarako? Wikipedia tells us:

Tarako (鱈子?), in Japanese cuisine, is a salted roe food, usually made from Alaska pollock,[1] although tara (鱈?) actually means cod in Japanese.

Tarako is served in a number of ways:

  • Plain (usually for breakfast)[2]
    As a filling for onigiri
    As a pasta sauce (usually with nori)

So I’m guessing we’re talking the last on that list. My son Andy picked this one to try today – a very adventurous choice considering he tends to gravitate towards chicken flavor almost exclusively; tarako sounds interesting. Let’s have a look under the hood of this big bowl of noodles!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). As far as containing meat, I’m guessing there’s fish involved but I’m not sure. To prepare, take everything out and then put the noodles in. Add boiling water for 1 minute then drain. Add liquid and powder sachets and stir. Garnish with seaweed. Enjoy!

Here’s detail of the lid (click image to enlarge).

A fresh noodle pouch.

Powder base sachet.

Has a seafood taste kind of like kamaboko. Since Andy really likes kamaboko, I think I might throw some in there as a garnish for him.

The liquid ingredient sachet.

Guessing this is oil and the tarako.

A garnish sachet perhaps?

Little strips of seaweed.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some kamaboko. The noodles cooked really quick – only a minute, basically just heating them up. They had a nice texture as one would expect from spaghetti. The flavor was pretty good – had a strong seafood kind of flavor and a slight greasiness from the liquid sachet content. The seaweed strips were much better than I expected here; they complimented and were enjoyable. Andy liked it – not as much as his chicken noodles, but still he liked them. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 4902105216163.

This is a pretty weird TV commercial for Nissin Spa王.

#1307: Nissin Cup Noodle Cheese Curry

This one was sent to me by Abbie C. of Hong Kong – thank you again! Curry – and cheese? Been very curious about this one, that’s for sure. I like curry a lot – one of the flavors that’s always strong and varies so much from culture to culture. Let’s see how it pairs with cheese and noodles in this cup.

The distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains chicken, pork and milk products.

The side panels (click image to enlarge). To prepare, open lid halfway and add 290ml boiling water. Close lid for 3 minutes, stir and enjoy.

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

A lot of seasoning and pieces in the cup.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion and pork. The noodles are flat and slightly wide. They have a pleasant chew and are reasonable in quantity. The flavor is definitely curry and what’s most interesting is the cheese component. It’s kind of gooey and has an unexpected feel to it; kind of confuses the mouth a bit but not in a negative way. It’s fascinating. It works well and I liked it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105030196.

Cheese aliens and screaming – gotta love it.

#1168: Nissin Donbei Curry Udon (West Japan Style)

First I want to thank Ken P. from twitter and Mari S. on facebook for help withe translation! Donbei is a kind of personalized donburi. The east is usually more of a salty flavor than the west as well. Many little difference! Pretty neat! Let’s have a look.

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). This one took a long time to stitch together in Photoshop!

These are very wide udon noodles!

The powder soup base sachet.

Very strong curry scent – really good.

The solid ingredient sachet.

Maybe some tofu? Bits of TVP?

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed Walla Walla sweet onion and pork. The noodles are broad and soak up the broth well. The flavor is strong curry – and what’s interesting is that it has a hint of smokiness. The broth is incredibly thick. Bits of textured vegetable protein and potato and carrot are hanging around too. This is the heavy end of hearty. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4902105021590.

#1106: Nissin Raoh Rich Soy Sauce with Roast Pork (2 Slices)

Here’s another one from Scott over at Nissin! Thank again, man! This one has two – count ’em two – slices of pork! Let’s check it out!

The side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains pork.

The noodle block.

The liquid soup base.

Has a nice color and a strong scent of soy.

Seaweed!

A nice bit of garnish. Nori is often served with ramen in Japan.

Veggie packet.

Looks like green onion or chives and perhaps leek?

The star of the bowl: the pork!

Awesome – in the past, these have been really good.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Nothing added today. The noodles have a good texture and chew. The broth is a little salty, but has a rich soy flavor which is very nice. The veggies are decent – very light. The pork slices are perfect – nice having two of them too! The seaweed gives a nice finish to everything. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105224007.

#1083: Nissin GooTa Demi Hamburg-Men

Well looky what we got here! This was one of the new varieties sent by Ichiro Yamoto of Yakantei! So if you’re wondering what this is, it’s a special cup of noodles that includes a dehydrated hamburger patty. No joke! Let’s have a look at this one!

The side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains (you guessed it) beef.

The noodle block with some of the seasoning.

The dehydrated hamburger patty!

Some of the seasoning that was at the bottom of the cup. There was a lot of it!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some green onions. The noodles are of a nice quality – slightly crumbly though. The broth is good – very full of beefiness! I detect slight sweetness, almost like it has something like ketchup in there as well as an interesting tartness. The corn comes together nicely too. So the beef patty is pretty good – it wants to fall apart though. This isn’t any kind of negative though; more of a hint. I found that after I samples each component, I felt that mushing up the patty and evenly distributing the patty throughout the bowl was a must and thoroughly enjoyed it that way. This is something that could have been a poorly done novelty, but is done very well. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105217085.

Here’s a commercial for another version of the GooTa – would love to try this one – sure looks like this guy really likes it!

Back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains meat.

Liquid soup base.

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). The actual color is like that on the left – it doesn’t get light.

A slice of pork!

Fancy!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion and hard boiled egg. The noodles are very nice – perfect chewiness and truly authentic. The broth is what you’d expect from a miso miso – strong miso flavor and hearty. The veggies are good – the corn about as good as you could get. The pork? Ahhh very tasty – and wonderful quality. This is some awesome stuff. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105214084.

#1014: Nissin King Spa Oh Peperoncino Spaghetti (日清生タイプSpa王 ペペロンチーノ)

Here’s one from Nissin Japan. Not a lot of English on this package so I had to do some research. What I found is that this is part of a series of spaghetti instant noodles. You add boiling water to the noodles and veg and let steep for one minute, then drain and add the oil and dry powder packet contents. Let’s give it a try!

Here’s the distributor’s sticker.

The noodles seen here are made or durum wheat and fresh.

Has a buttery garlic scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, green bell pepper, rib eye steak sauteed with minced garlic and Worcestershire sauce and a sprinkle of Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake.Excellent noodles – definitely spaghetti. Nice texture and chew. The flavor is interesting. First, it’s light – don’t look for a strong flavor in this one. It’s subtle and works extremely well. I really liked it – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.
