#3201: Jinanbo Tonkotsu Ramen - Japan

This one was in a Ramen Trunk subscription box.These boxes are full of extremely high end varieties that you’ll never find in the United States or anywhere outside Japan! Check out this link and use coupon code RAMENRATER20OFF for 20% off any single box or subscription!

Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Based in Fukuoka on Kyushu island, the home of tonkotsu ramen, Ramen Jinanbo is an award winning Tonkotsu broth (pork bone broth) ramen that ranked #1 in a prestigious nationa ramen competition.

The chef has studied and perfected a recipe which uniquely minimizes the scent of the pork bones in order to create a rich soup base that is neither too fatty nor salty. This is a famously delicious soup that has become popular with all ages and people.

The classic Hakata-style made from wheat are thin and straight noodles, perfect for capturing this soup and delivering that perfect mouthful. Best prepared firm or al dente.”

Hey awesome! Let’s check it out!

Thick stuff!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, chashu, kizami shoga, shichimi togarashi, sesame seeds, soft egg. Noodles are thin and very good – they only cook for a minute or so and just come out exquisitely. The broth is porky and hearty and smooth – just the nicest flavor you could want in a tonkotsu.

#3243: Sapporo Ichiban Pickles Kimchi Chige Ramen – Japan

#3243: Sapporo Ichiban Pickles Kimchi Chige Ramen - Japan

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Kimchi chige flavor soup is made up with savory seafood, veggies, and bonito broth. Plus added garlic so that you can feel some umami in the spicy soup. Sourness and spiciness of kimchi goes well with the soup and soft texture of tofu toppings to whet your appetite.”

O’m unsure about the pickles reference; I think it has to do with the kimchi aspect as I found Pickles Corporation and it looks to be about things ‘pickled’ perhaps. Let’s check it out!

Here’s what you see when you take off the plastic wrap (click image to enlarge).

A decent sized noodle block.

The liquid seasoning.

Guess I should have used the little white sake cup for this one, huh? Well, it’s more of a orange/brown color than black.

Veggies!

Here they are – looks like a decent amount of them too!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some Bird’s Eye Stir Fry vegetables, some oven roasted turkey breast and some Ajishima Kim Chi furikake. The Noodles are pretty good – definitely has a kind of texture and quality I usually would expect from perhaps a frozen dinner – they’re pretty good! The flavor is nice – a slightly spicy orange chicken. The veggies are really good – all over and of good quality. This is a nice one! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC barcode 07066208728 – get it here.
