Meet The Manufacturer: #2792: Mike's Mighty Good Craft Ramen Spicy Pork Tonkotsu Flavor Ramen Soup

So today’s variety is one I’ve been curious about. This is a pork tonkotsu from the United States – something I don’t usually think is going to be great. But if it does as well as everything else has, I think it’s going to be good. Here’s a little about tonkotsu from Wikipedia-

Ramen soup is generally made from stock based on chicken or pork, combined with a variety of ingredients such as kombu (kelp), katsuobushi (skipjack tuna flakes), niboshi (dried baby sardines), beef bones, pig bones, shiitake, and onions.

  • 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 hit it up!

Has a sesame scent to it.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, chashu pork and shichimi togarashi. The noodles came out very well and had a nice chew. The broth made me think more spicy pork than spicy pork tonkotsu. Not saying it was bad, but I didn’t get the creaminess I was hoping for. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 081567702125.
