Review - Marutai Kagoshima Kurobuta Tonkotsu Ramen

     As I mentioned in my previous entry, my husband bought this Marutai Kagoshima Kurobuta Tonkotsu Ramen (マルタイ 鹿児島 黒豚とんこつラーメン) at Don Quijote in Tokyo last month. This contained two servings of instant ramen. Last week, he finally cooked it for our lunch. :)

      The yellow map on this package is Kyushu (九州), which is the most southwesterly of four main islands of Japan. The green area on the map is Kagoshima prefecture (鹿児島県), where is famous for Kagoshima pork, which is called Kagoshima kurobuta (かごしま黒豚) in Japan.

      He added egg, green onions, nori and shredded ginger pickles to the ramen.

      Our hometown is Fukuoka prefecture, where is one of the most famous places for tonkotsu ramen in Japan, so when it comes to tonkotsu ramen, we are pretty picky about it. Actually, we loved the Kagoshima ramen! :) It was pretty rich tonkotsu soup made from Kagoshima pork. As you can see the photo below, it had browned green onions (焦がしねぎ) which added savory flavor to it.

        If you love a richer tonkotsu taste, I recommend you to try Marutai Kurume Tonkotsu Ramen (マルタイ 久留米 とんこつラーメン), but you might think Kurume one is too greasy. This Kagoshima ramen is savory and has rich (but not extremely) tonkotsu flavor.

     Marutai instant ramen always tastes authentic. If you are planning on visiting Japan, you should try their all 8 regions flavors, Kagoshima (鹿児島), Nagasaki (長崎), Kurume (久留米), Hakata (博多), Kumamoto (熊本) , Saga (佐賀), Miyazaki (宮崎) and Oita (大分). You can purchase their instant ramen at Don Quijote (Donki), which is one of the biggest Japanese discount chain stores in Japan. By the way, my favorite one for now is Marutai Nagasaki Agodashi Soy Sauce Ramen. :)
