博多ラーメン Tonkotsu Instant Ramen

In looking all over the box to find the shop name, this instant ramen is simply called Hakata Ramen Tonkotsu. Hmmm…it says tonkotsu on one side and ninniku (garlic) on the other. I’m a bit confused on why two boxes are stuck together. Oh wait. It says 替玉付 (kaedama tsuki). Wow, I’ve never heard of instant ramen including kaedama. Looks like I’m in for a big meal.


The contents include two packs of thin Hakata-style noodles (obviously), fresh ginger, sesame seeds, dried green onions, garlic chips, and a pouch of フクチャンスープ. Fukuchan soup? Okay so that must be the shop that makes this ramen.


What a beautiful-looking instant ramen. It’s not only good-looking, it’s an instant culinary delight. If this was served at most ramen-ya’s in LA, people would never know the difference. This smooth, creamy tonkotsu soup is loaded with flavors that will leave you speechless. The mind-numbing combination of garlic chips and ginger just blows you away. I take pride in my instant ramen cooking, but all the credit goes to the creators for this one. I don’t think I could’ve messed this up if I tried.


The noodles unbelievably took this ramen up another notch. Their thin, light texture left me yearning for more. Wait a minute! Did I hear someone say…


It’s Kaedama time!!!


These garlic chips are as good as potato chips. You can’t eat just one.

  1. Hi Mike a.k.a. Divefan,Sorry for the torture. I bought this at the ramen museum during my recent trip to Japan. Unfortunately you won’t be able to find this in the states yet–at least I never have. They cost anywhere from $4-$6 which can be pretty expensive for instant ramen, but it’s dam well worth it! If I find a store that sells them in the states I’ll be sure to let you know. Thanks for the inquiry.Keizo

  2. Hey Keizo, quit torturing us!– Where did you find this?– How much did it cost you?– Will it be easy for us non-Japanese speakers to find :-)?TIA,Mike a.k.a. Divefan
