What is Tonkotsu Ramen?

  • Опубликовано:  7 месяцев назад
  • We flew out to Fukuoka and drove down to Kurume to eat at one of the founding places of Tonkotsu Ramen. We're trying out Kurume Ramen Seiyoken. It's delicious, and we're going to show you what the kitchen looks like, how the ramen is made, and we'll tell you just how good it tastes :D

    The Ramen eggs though... love them too, it's so easy to do.
    LOL random instructions: Just put room temperature extra large eggs into boiling water(not a violent boil) for 6-7 minutes(depending on egg size) then transfer to ice water for 4 minutes then peel. Then rest in a sake, mirin and soy sauce mixture overnight. If the eggs are medium sized or just average try around 5-6 minutes.

    They're actually amazing sliced and in a sandwich. I will take any excuse to randomly eat these.
    I love your food videos!

    okay, you two are foodies. you must love eating.
    my question is: how about putting my cooking to the taste test? i believe i can make something similar or greater. i just need honest tasting & judges. let me know if you two are interested, but you would have to come back to America because i live in California & i can not really afford to travel.
    thanks, domo arigato,

    I'm really glad you like the same type of ramen as I do! There are lots of ramen shops with Japanese chefs (who learnt in Japan) in Sydney city, and thankfully many do tonkotsu, but not all get it right, with some tasting oily rather than thick & sticky with collagen, or just weak in flavour.
    If you ever travel to Sydney Aus, please give advance notice on your channel! I have some recommendations for things for you to see and eat, and would love to see your thoughts on my favourite ramen shop (the broth is so thick many people can't handle it) 😊

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Месяц назад

      +AllforCJW because the chickens are healthy in Japan, and that's the colour yolks should be. Yellow yolks aren't a good sign of egg health

    1) very true tonkotsu ramen is kind of a minority ramen in Japan. Meaty, rich, creamy food is not really a Japanese palette. People in Kyushu have slightly exotic food tastes (lots of pork, which is why they have the bones to make into the soup) from the POV of main island Japanese. Salt and soy sauce are the "traditional" ramen flavors. And yes, all my foreigner friends like tonkotsu lol.

    2) I think ramen lovers in Japan think it's blasphemous when people don't finish the soup, since like Simon says, it's one of the best parts. I am sure they are silently appreciating you each time you finish that bowl clean.

    I am not the biggest tonkotsu ramen fan but I should try it in Kyushu, not just judge it based on what I have had in Tokyo.

    I love tonkotsu. It's the best type of ramen. Hell, it's it's own dish. There are so many variations. You can have it hearty and fatty or thin and very flavourful and salty. If anyone wants to try some tonkotsu at home, the best instant tonkotsu is made by Itsuki. Their kumamoto justice ramen is incredible. 5 out of 5 from me. It comes with dried ramen noodles, not fried, and it has liquid stock. It's made with black garlic and it's the most incredible thing you've ever tasted. It's not powdered broth either. It's a highly concentrated stock.

    This brings me back to when I was studying in Fukuoka, there was this tiny mom and pop ramen place that I LOVED going to; they spoke no English and it was one of the first places we found on our own that first few days there. Essentially we communicated using hand signals and pointing (and our VERY limited Japanese at the time) for the owners to show us what to try and how to season everything when it came out.

    'Scuse me, getting all teary-eyed thinking about it. ;A;
