Aji Yoka Tai Tonkotsu Ramen Kumamoto from Marutai

Allergens: wheat, egg, dairy, sesame, soy, chicken, pork, gelatin Cooking time: 3 minutes Let’s talk about Kumamoto Ramen (熊本ラーメン) for a second, the big rival from Hakata Ramen on the Kyushu Island. Kumamoto ramen has noodles that are a little thicker and the soup tastes a little milder because chicken stock is blended into the tonkotsu soup. Another difference from Hakata Ramen is the use of garlic. Kumamoto uses cooked garlic that is fried or roasted, while Hakata ramen uses raw garlic. For this cup, the tonkotsu soup (とんこつ) is a perfect blend of two types of garlic, which are characterized by their appetizing taste and fragrance. The pork bone soup is a perfect match with 100% vegetable oil fried noodles. They come with special black garlic oil, which is a characteristic of Kumamoto ramen. Be ready for a cup of ramen with strong flavors, taking you on a journey to Kumamoto and its traditional cuisine!

For such a spicy soup, it’s best to have light and thin noodles with good crispness. The soy sauce based soup with 3 kinds of chili peppers is colorful, with plenty of aromas, spiciness, and umami from chicken, pork, and bonito. It’s topped with minced meat, scrambled eggs, chili peppers, and green onions.

Soup Harusame Wantan from Acecook

Allergens: wheat, egg, dairy, sesame, soy, chicken, pork Cooking time: 3 minutes Here’s something new: delicious Harusame noodles (はるさめ, 春雨). Harusame is the Japanese name for cellophane noodles or glass noodles. The Japanese kanji for Harusame are 春雨, which means spring (春) and rain (雨). Such a poetic name for noodles, isn’t it? They are not made like your usual ramen or soba, but made of both sweet potato and potato starch in Nara prefecture, and they are usually thicker than the Chinese counterparts. Harusame has a smooth and chewy texture and goes very well with the soup from this cup. It’s a well-balanced Chinese-style soup, with the umami of chicken bones and the flavor of potherbs blended together with a hint of soy sauce. The dish is finished with wontons (ワンタン), eggs, green onions, and sesame seeds.
