Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Welcome to Hokkaido! No visit to Hokkaido is complete without a bowl of their famous miso ramen.

This month we have a unique combo pack. The first set is a famous miso ramen from Sapporo based Keyaki Ramen.

The Keyaki ramen is distinct due to its recipe combining three different types of Hokkaido miso with their secret broth recipe which includes smooth pork back fat, a concction of aromatic oils, flavorful vegetable paste, and finally a hint of ground dried sardine powder. This secret recipe not only creates a one of a kind rich and savory taste but also has made Keyaki ramen immensely popular up north in Japan and across the entire country.’

As they mention, it’s a combo pack and includes two packages of two differen varieties. Let’s take a closer look.

The noodles in Kuro Tetsuya are ‘willow-like’ with natural irregularities in the noodles through the unique cutting process thus mimicking a hand cut texture. This noodle has won some awards including the 2008 Monde Selection Gold award. The noodles are classified as ‘Chinese-style’ soba.

Topping off the delicate bowl of ramen is a pack of fragrant chicken oil. Use at you discretion and taste preference. The noodles contained in this pack are a common medium thickness with a high protein content. As a recognition for Furano Ramen’s dedication to finding the perfect balanced taste, this Tomikawa ramen was listed in the Michelin Hokkaido Guide 2012.”

Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Okinawa prefecture is a group of islands in the south of Japan. Well known for its tropical weather and beautiful beaches. However, equally well known is the  unique Okinawa Soba produced on these islands.

Okinawa Soba is a noodle soup with thick wheat noodles reminiscent of udon noodles and are slightly flat. Definitely a deviation from typical thin ramen noodles but just as delicious.

The soup is a pork based broth flavored with kombu (seaweed) and bonito (fish flakes) adding to a lighter and more delicate taste.'”

Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Ebisoba Ichigen  is a ramen restaurant originally founded in Sapporo City, Hokkaido. Due to their very distinct taste and their success they have even expanded to Tokyo opening 2 shops in the capital city.

Ebisoba Ichigen’s unique feature and taste can be attributed to its use of shrimp broth into their soup base. The shrimp broth is delicately boiled with some of the freshest Hokkaido shrimp (including the heads!), to create this flavor which is highly sought after and truly one of a kind. This combination creates a very rich and savory broth with a hint of sweetness fro the shrimps. This box is the miso based broth perfectly combined with the shrimp flavor.

This is truly a ramen you don’t want to miss. Oftentimes some patrons believe the shrimp flavor to be too strong but the chefs have perfected the shrimp flavors in the pursuit of the perfect seafood broth.”

Wow – so this sounds really fancy – I’m enthused as I love shrimp – let’s see what we have!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, spring onion, shichimi togarashi, kizami shoga, chashu pork, sesame seeds, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Holy crap this is delicious. Okay, so the noodles have an excellent chewiness and a great gauge – probably the thickest ramen I’ve had that hasn’t been considered udon. The broth has a tasty miso flavor – rich and deep. But that shrimp oil is just showy and giving; it’s like Warren Buffet at an orphanage giving. IT’s tasty – makes everything taste like an umami bomb made of prawns just was detonated in your mouth. Loved this and actually ate the whole thing. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.JAN bar code 4533446001059.

The tonkotsu broth contains broth made from Black Pigs from Kagoshima and has a distinct vegetable taste which is slightly sweet. There is also a distinct “burnt onion” taste unique to Kagoshima ramen.”
