Myojo Chuka Soba Tomita Junsui Pure Tonkotsu Ramen
When I visit and shop at my go-to 7-Eleven, I always notice newly released cup ramens lined up on the shelves. But recently, I couldn’t find the one perfect for the blog article.
However, the product that caught my eye today finally hit the point and made me instantly grab it without thinking a lot.
Chuka Soba Tomita Junsui Tonkotsu Ramen Instant Noodle
This instant noodle named Chuka Soba Tomita Junsui Tonkotsu Ramen is from 7&i group’s highest-grade line, Seven Premium Gold,
created by teaming up with Myojo (明星) with the help of the ramen restaurant Chuka Soba Tomita (中華蕎麦とみ田).
Based on the official website of 7&i, it went on sale on 20 June (2022) and cost me 300 yen (tax-included).
The Junsui (純粋: meaning Pure) Tonkotsu Ramen is only offered in the head shop of Chuka Soba Tomita located in Matsudo City, Chiba, and the dish is a one-of-a-kind super thick noodle soup.
And to recreate it, this bowl comes with a familiar-looking dried wheat noodle block and four packets shown above. The contents of each are,
- The transparent packet contains dehydrated garnishes (先入れ: put before cooking the noodles)
- The orange one has a special pork oil with umami and thickener (後入れ: put after cooking the noodles)
- The brown has a Tonkotsu (豚骨: pork bone) tare sauce (後入れ)
- The green has a special flavoring oil with a sansho flavor for Ajihen (味変: taste change)
The garnish or topping consists of a thin slice of Char-siu roast pork, Menma bamboo shoots, and green onions.
I cooked the instant noodles of Chuka Soba Tomita Junsui Tonkotsu Ramen following the directions on the side label.
And here, I share the process with photos for those who want to try the ramen someday.
|1||After you put the garnishes into the cup, pour boiling water until it reaches the line indicated inside.|
|2||Then, close the lid, place the orange and brown packets on top, and wait for 4 minutes.|
|3||Four minutes later, remove the lid and add the contents of the orange packet. And stir to thicken the soup. Then, pour in the Tonkotsu Dare sauce and mix it up again.|
|4||Now it is ready to eat! Enjoy the ramen!|
The broth is quite thick but less than the Tenka-Ippin Ramen. The flavor is rich, loaded with plenty of umami from pork bones.
At this point, the ramen has already reached a decent level, but by putting the special sansho oil after eating halfway, it becomes perfect.
The seasoning oil is not that spicy but delightfully aromatic, making the ramen exquisitely flavorful.
