Video:Tonkotsu (Pork Broth) Flavoured Instant Ramen From Japan!

Tis’ must be the season to experience Japan – two of my colleagues went for a holiday there, one after the other! One came back with a ‘souvenir’ for the office’s babi-eating folk: Tonkotsu (pork broth) flavoured instant ramen from the famous Ippudo Ramen brand.

Instructions were all in Japanese, but there are some illustrations and everything is pretty straightforward. Messed around with a new video editing software on the phone, so here it is:

Really impressed with the end product! Did not feel like an instant ramen, not one iota. The broth was creamy, rich and full of flavour, and the ramen had a nice al dente bite to it. Too bad we can’t find this in Malaysia – unless anyone knows of a Japanese specialty store that sells them? 🙂

  1. Ippudo Ramen is my favourite ramen chain in Japan. On my second last visit there, I organized a tour of Hakata (we took the shinkansen from Osaka) just so I could visit the restaurant. I had seen the owner/chef on a Japanese game show (TV Champion) and thought his food looked amazing. I even wrote to TV champion to get the name and location of his shop. It was a long journey, but definitely worth it.
    On my last visit, I was overjoyed to find out that he had opened up branches all over Japan. I went to the Osaka branch twice.
    Sorry to ramble.
