Now you can enjoy the authentic taste of Japan at home, because Shoryu has launched a new menu of DIY Shoryu Kits. Our girl Hannah Tan-Gillies cancelled her Saturday night plans to try her hand at mastering the art of ramen with Shoryu’s Restaurant Kits – and honestly – it was a lot easier than expected.
Nothing beats a steaming hot bowl of Ramen and Shoryu’s Ramen kits come with everything you need to turn yourself into a socially-distanced ramen master in no time. We sampled the Shoryu Ganso Ramen Kit, which has more than enough noodle goodness for two and will add some Japanese style to your Saturday night meal.
Each DIY kit includes 600ml of Shoryu’s absolutely delicious 12-hour ‘bangin’ Tonkotsu soup stock, two servings of original ramen noodles, Char Siu barbeque pork belly, Beni Shoda red ginger, spring onions and Kikurage mushrooms.
Ramen enthusiasts can also order additional soft boiled nimatago egg, and nori seaweed to add that extra dash of authenticity to your ramen concoction.
The DIY kits are fool-proof and can be assembled in 10 minutes. You start off with mixing the soup stock with some water and putting it to a boil. While this is simmering, you slice and brown the Char siu pork and thinly slice the spring onions and quickly boil the noodles. Once all this is ready, assemble your noodles and enjoy.
While the preparation is quick and easy, the result is absolutely incredible. The soup stock is wonderfully rich and is perfectly balanced with the light wheat noodles. The browned char siu pork belly, mixed with all the trimmings, certainly captures the authenticity and flavours of Shoryu Ramen, and we didn’t even have to leave the house.
