Nissin - HK - Tonkatsu Nissin - HK - Tonkatsu Cooked

Review: An opaque milky yellow broth frames the Tonkatsu (Pork) flavoured ramen very nicely. The inclusion of sesame seeds is a nice touch, and the aroma of the broth is quite pleasant. Although I was a bit critical of the Hong Kong Nissin noodles in the previous review, they seem to have fluffed up nicely this time, which could indicate a slight undercook in the sesame/chicken review. Two sachets are included again, the soup base, and a seasoning sauce.

The pork flavour combined with chicken is extremely complementary. It is a very filling broth, and by utilising a slight overcook on the noodles, they are able to absorb the flavour quite well. The soup is a perfect balance of strength and weakness, and has a pleasant aftertaste. Add some shredded pork or chicken to the broth, and Nissin’s tonkatsu flavour would be worthy of a low-budget Asian restaurant. However, a noticeable lack of dried vegetables is still a problem.
