Komurasaki Instant Ramen – 熊本ラーメン

You may remember my encounter with Komurasaki and their Oosama-ramen early on in my trip to Japan and how their creamy tonkotsu soup reminded me a lot like Shinsengumi’s. Well, the same goes for their instant ramen.

The contents include long, blonde strands of thin, yellow noodles and a packet of tonkotsu soup. No toppings as expected.

This creamy soup is great, but it still doesn’t impress me all that much. The balance of flavors combine for a mellow taste much like the real thing. But man, do I miss those toppings!

The Hakata-style noodles were very easy to slurp. Their smooth texture gently rubs the tonsils as they go down.
