As we transition from the sweltering summer heat to cooler temps, my mind is strictly on soup season. It's the best time of the year really, where dreams of sipping on bowls of pho, ramen, tinola, laksa, lobster bisque, tom yum, and chowder dance around in my head. Popular ramen chain, Ippudo, also knows what time it is. That's why they've debuted a tonkotsu broth in a can.
Dubbed Koku to Umami no Ippudo Tonkotsu Ramen Soup (Rich flavor and Umami Ippudo Tonkotsu Ramen Soup), the sippable version of Ippudo's delectable broth, is now available in an on-the-go can form. It's worth noting that Ippudo has tweaked their original broth recipe for this product, reducing the amount of oil and salt, to make it more suitable for sipping out the can.
The Ippudo canned ramen is sold online and at Acure vending machines located in East Japan Rail train stations. Can't wait to crack open a hot one.
