Bone Broth Noodles

It’s love at first bite. This noodle pack comes with some of our seasonal favorite. While a skeleton plays dramatic music on the organ, the curtains open to reveal our best Halloween serving of Japanese noodles. It’s all treats and no tricks in this month’s Bone Broth Noodle Ramen Pack.


日清のどん兵衛 鶏白湯うどん

Donbei Tori Paitan Udon

Allergies include: Wheat Egg Dairy Chicken Pork Soy

Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Donbei Tori Paitan Udon

You’re familiar with tonkotsu ramen, the lovely taste Kyushu-style pork bone broth based dish, but have you heard of tori paitan (鶏白湯)? This is the chicken version of the same dish, and a new product of the familiar donbei (どん兵) line from Nissin.

The chicken makes these instant noodles much lighter than their pork bone counterparts, and Nissin found a culinary creative way to enhance all the flavors. The hot water-based tsuyu (つゆ) takes advantages of the chicken flavor, to which chicken oil (chiyu, ちーゆ) was mixed, giving your dish a warm and creamy texture.

If you’re a fan of udon (うどん), the thicker Japanese noodles, this is the perfect cup to try a less common dish that they can be cooked in. It’s a very casual eat, with a mellow broth that welcomes the udon perfectly; a sweet and creamy chicken noodle for when the days  get colder.


Nomihosu Ippai Miso Butter Ramen

Allergies include: Wheat Egg Dairy Sesame Soy Chicken Pork Gelatin

Cooking Time: 3 minutes
Nomihosu Ippai Miso Butter Ramen

It’s on the cover, you can’t miss it: butter. What dish doesn’t butter make better? Okay, maybe a few, but in this case, this miso butter ramen is on point! It comes with a rich soup finished with a delicious butter block, just the right amount to make you want more!

It’s part of the nomihosu (飲み干す一杯) series, “drinking cup”, which is known for its drinkable broth! For those of you who’ve tried some restaurant ramen, you know how heavy some broth can be: and very salty on top of that, making it hard to finish drinking them at times. But not this one!

Butter in a miso ramen is quite uncommon, but goes really well together and gives it a unique flavor. The soup is thick but smooth like butter. You’ll find some green onions and chili peppers to give it a bit of an accent and tighten the flavors together when you eat your noodles.

Hakata Yaki Ramen

Toyo Suisan is in it for the local flavors. This town this taste, あの街この味!That’s the series they are developing to bring you flavors from across Japan. Just released this month, on August 9th, these Fukuoka edition hakata fried ramen are a treat from your senses.

Hakata ramen (博多ラーメン) is a specialty in Kyushu, the larger south-western island of Japan, and originated in the city of Fukuoka. You may know it as a type of tonkotsu ramen, as it is called in the rest of Japan. Hakata is the historical name of central Fukuoka.

The fried noodles from our Fukuoka Hen Hakata Yaki Ramen are thin noodles with lovely texture and their recognizable yellow color coming from the use of kansui (かんすい) in the preparation. The noodles are a perfect match for the pork bone-flavored sauce and ready in one minute on the clock. Topped with a little sesame oil, the broth is a savory delight.

マルタイ 味よか隊とんこつラーメン鹿児島

Aji Yokatai Kagoshima Tonkotsu Ramen

Allergies include: Wheat Egg Dairy Sesame Soy Chicken Pork

Cooking Time: 3 minutes
Aji Yokatai Kagoshima Tonkotsu Ramen

Can you locate Kagoshima on the map? It’s the southern tip of the island of Kyushu. Although it is Kagoshima style tonkotsu ramen, it is known nationwide that the tonkotsu culture of Kyushu as a whole originated from the city of Kurume in Fukuoka to various places, and the so-called paitan soup, which we also got for you in this pack, became one of its most famous contributions to the Japanese noodleverse. 

Originally, in Kyushu, it is traditional to use pickled ginger, takana leaf mustard, etc. to eliminate the smell of pork bones used for the broth, but in Kagoshima they opted for garlic and green onions. Well-established ramen shops famous in Kagoshima include "Noriichi", "Komurasaki", "Sabon Ramen", "Kuroiwa", etc., but each of them has a different style when it comes to preparing tonkotsu ramen.

And therefore, each restaurant has influenced the other ramen shops in their respective area, and has created a paradise for local ramen aficionados: each of them as a unique taste only available in their small area.

Now, think about all that when you’re having a taste of those noodles!
