Marutai Kurume Noukou Tonkotsu Ramen

     When my husband was on his business trip in Japan, he purchased 8 kinds of Marutai Kyusyu Ramen. Marutai is a Japanese company that makes instant ramen. The company was established in Fukuoka in 1947 and started selling Bou Ramen in 1959. Bou (棒) means stick in Japanese. While most instant ramen is wavy noodle block, the noodles of Marutai Bo Ramen are as straight as sticks. That's why this ramen is called Bou Ramen (棒ラーメン). Each Bou Ramen has two servings of instant noodles. These years, they've started selling Kyusyu region series in Japan, and the series has been very popular there. We've tried Kurume, Kagoshima and Nagasaki so far.

       Last week, my husband cooked this Marutai Kurume Noukou Tonkotsu Ramen (マルタイ 久留米 濃厚とんこつラーメン). Kurume (久留米) is a city located in Southern Fukuoka. Kurume is famous for tonkotsu ramen in Japan. Actually, our home town is pretty close to Kurume, and we've gone to ramen restaurants located in Kurume so many times since we were children. There are numerous tonkotsu ramen restaurants in Kurume, and famous restaurants are Taihou Ramen (大砲ラーメン), Maruboshi Ramen (丸星ラーメン) and Taihou Ramen (大峰ラーメン). When you walk close to tonkotsu ramen restaurants in Kurume, you will definitely notice smell of pork-bone broth. Indeed, Kurume tonkotsu ramen tastes richer than Hakata and Kumamoto tonkotsu ramen. (You might think it's too greasy.) By the way, noukou (濃厚) means rich in Japanese.

       It was just as excellent as I expected. :) Marutai always makes the best authentic tonkotsu ramen! By the way, I think that the worst Japanese tonkotsu ramen is Nissin Raoh Umami Tonkotsu selling in the U.S.
