What is Tonkotsu Ramen?

  • Added:  4 months ago
  • 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

    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;

      I don't think you can say that one ramen is better than another. It's like bread. Is sourdough better than rye? It depends on what you like.

    Can you already speak Japanese? I'm going to Tokyo for five months and im going to do a language course, but some tips before I go on Japanese would be cool from some people who learned japanese from just living there. Did you notice some slang or pronounces that are used often that arent taught?

    So we "don't have broths like this in North America?" Where the hell did you live when you lived here? It's not like Japanese who come to North America and open ramen restaurants suddenly forget how it's made back home. Great video as always, but the typical expat belief that "you just can't get this anywhere but here" is kinda tiresome. I eat at plenty of ramen places here -- small, hidden "gems" just like this one -- that match or better this one. Maybe things have changed since you left, but my favourite ramen shops actually predate your blog, so ... ;)

    just from my personal experience, i rarely finish the whole ramen with the soup the reason being is that i just get too full lol even if im really hungry i can never finish it all so by the time im like 3/4 done with it i just do my best to finish up noodles/chashu and then a few spoons of the soup itself at the end is enough to make me go i canttttttttt no moreeeeeeee so i leave the rest :c

    My favorite ramen restaurant in California makes a Kura Tonkotsu Ramen. It's very much like that one in this video expect I have them add corn because I love corn and it has Kura which is a black garlic oil on top it's very good. I love the egg. It is possible to get good ramen in North America but there has to be Japanese people around. Lots of Japanese people in California.I don't think I could ever move out of California and give up my ramen.

    great video guys! not a good one to watch when hungry. also I'm not sure if this is totally accurate, but I've heard that people do not drink the broth because it's high in sodium and unhealthy oils and it makes people feel sluggish and fatigued. the noodles are fine but the broth is usually very not good for you

    slurping is for flavour, the goos back out your nose and thats more "flavour" (smel, but humans are fucked up and tast and smell is not what we do well)

    +Simon and Martina, you should bite your noodles because you are saying to the chef that you don't like it. So keep on sucking it until it the noodle finish; that compliments the chef.
