Mukashinagara no Shio Ramen

Charumera Tonkotsu is a ramen that takes the speedy aspect of instant ramen one step further: it can completely cook 90 seconds flat!

Unlike traditional tonkotsu soup, the broth is lighter and better for drinking after you’ve finished your noodles. It’s not hard to realize why this is one of Japan’s most popular instant tonkotsu ramens!
Sunaoshi Shoyu Ramen
Combining the best of both worlds, this ramen features both shoyu and tonkotsu in one soup.
