How To Prepare

  1. Let’s first begin with preparing the toppings by slicing the spring onion into thin rounds and the rehydrated kikurage wood ear mushrooms into thin slices. Boil your beansprouts in water and slice your hard boiled egg in half lengthways.

  2. The preparation of your ramen noodles is very easy, simply boil a good amount of water to cover them in a large saucepan, add the noodles and let them cook for 2 – 3 minutes.

  3. While your ramen noodles are cooking, dilute the Hakata tonkotsu ramen stock with 300ml of hot water in a bowl. You can add a bit less water if you prefer the stock to be a little thicker and more concentrated.

  4. When your ramen noodles are cooked, remove them from the pan of water and add them to the bowl of stock. Then add the toppings, beginning with the meat and the boiled egg in the centre. Add the spring onion, beansprouts, ginger, kikurage mushroom, sesame seeds and narutomaki neatly around them. Enjoy this tasty ramen with a refreshing Sapporo beer to get even more into that Japanese Ramen shop mood.
