Marketing Food Guides

Urban diners eat out at the seemingly infinite numbers of ramen restaurants now populating our larger cities. Even if you can get to a ramen restaurant it isn’t always great, and the good spots are often packed, leading to long lines and hungry bellies. But what if the closest ramen restaurant is miles away.. where to buy ramen noodles to eat? Not only that.. how about authentic Japanese ramen? Our favorite way to tackle this problem is, of course, to make ramen at home.

We provide soft, non-fried ramen contained in our Authentic Japanese Ramen sets and Kae-dama kits. These noodles are soft- right out of the bag. And can be cooked hard or soft just like you can at your local ramen restaurant. Use in Yakisoba, Ramen, or Stir-fry: check out these recipes for yourself!

High-quality ramen noodles have a distinct chewy spring and a definite wheaty sweetness. It’s hard, if not impossible, to recreate such noodles at home. Sure, recipes exist, but they require alkaline salts, sometimes chemicals, and high-pressure extruders. Authentic ramen shouldn’t have a long paragraph of ingredients. Non-fried and chemical preservative free will give you the taste you want.

Ten for $1 may seem like a deal.. but..where to buy Japanese ramen noodles?

Most of the store-bought variety (think college dorm staple food) noodles are fried to extract all of the moisture out of them. Sure, that’s great for your disaster kit that has to last 2 years..but really- it’s not the best. Fried noodles will have an oily fried taste that usually is overpowered by the seasoning packet to mask that flavor. In comparison, Hakubaku Shoyu and Tonkotsu Ramen sets include our Kaedama noodles. Made in Japan by ramen experts and have been since 1941

At Hakubaku, quality Japanese ramen noodles are key. We never fry our noodles or use chemical preservatives! We dry the noodles using our and let the moisture out naturally – but stops short of a totally dry, hard noodle. This leaves the noodle flexible, flavorful, and ready to add to your next dish. Cooks in 2 minutes for hard, or, 2:30 minutes for a softer noodle. Never breaks down or gets mushy in soup! Both our Kaedama and Ramen Kits contain a perfect portion of noodles in their own sealed pouches ready to use.
