This is the broth I bought [link]
It took forever to get here but man was it worth it. Used noodles bought from the Asian store, some nori, pork belly, soft boiled egg, Maggi hot sauce,sriracha chili sauce and some sesame seeds.
I've started making ramen at home because I'm not satisfied with what is available in Kingston. I've found I can make it better than what is available here.
You can find concentrated tonkotsu broth packets online (I like this one which does ship to Canada even though it's on US Amazon). The flavor is quite good.
Since the broth is the hardest part, the rest is fairly simple to make at home:
-Metro sells pork belly and it's easy to make great chashu in a slow cooker.
-Boil some eggs to medium hardness and make a marinade with ginger/soy sauce/rice vinegar/sugar (there are plenty of recipes online) and marinate them overnight.
-I pick up the noodles from J-Town when I'm passing through Toronto, but I'd assume at least one of the Asian grocery stores sells good noodles.
-Pick up some scallions and whatever other toppings you want to toss on.
It's pretty fun to make as a weekend project (start the chashu and eggs on Saturday and you'll be rewarded for dinner on Sunday).
I mentioned it above this comment, but if you miss pasta/ramen, look into Well Lean noodles. They're a lil pricey but they have 2g carb per pack of ready-to-eat noodles. I cook whatever sauce i intend to mix them in, then rinse the noodles with hot water in a colander to warm them up and dump them into sauce. Their texture is a little gummier/chewier than noodles but.. i actually quite enjoy chewing on them. I don't recommend their "rice" variant. it sucks.
For ramen, I buy these for the broth of ramen, which according to amazon reviews might actually be what they use at actual ramen restaurants that dont legitimately boil bones for 24 hours before serving. it's pretty good. Solves my ramen craving and is way healthier and betus-friendly.
These are pretty good: Tonkotsu Broth - Amazon UK
while I looked into making my own broth just not enough time but did find an excellent concentrate which I'll try to share. I soaked some dehydrated shiitake mushrooms in boiling water for about an hour then removed the mushrooms and added the concentrate to the water along with some sesame oil and soy sauce tonkotsu ramen concentrate
I've been very lazy with cooking lately, so I 'meal prepped' some chicken breasts and make various dinner combinations throughout the week with them.
With the chicken part done, this took roughly 15 minutes to put together.
1 medium zucchini squash.
Spiralized to your preferred size.
Soup base + 1 cup (250ml) of water.
Bring to a boil. Then add in any spices you want. This combo included cayenne pepper, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Translated the back of the soup package and the carbs were 4g.
2 medium boiled eggs.
If it helps: I make my eggs with the Krupps Egg Cooker, but apparently they're not being made anymore and the one listed on Amazon is extremely overpriced.
1 portion of prepped chicken.
Grill or pan fry for finishing texture.
Place zucchini in your bowl, pour in soup, top with chicken and eggs.
Japanese Noodles Tonkotsu Ramen Concentration Pork Bone Soup, 1-Pounds, 10 Packs
I remember someone asking this a while ago - Amazon has it. Here's an example
Here it is on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Japanese-Noodles-Tonkotsu-Concentration-1-Pounds/dp/B00K69ZK46?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_1&th=1
I guess you could check the instructions people have put in answers and reviews, or use it as a starting point for further research? Hope it helps.
I'm a Tonkotsu ramen guy, but the best Instant Ramen I've had was the Morimoto branded Tokyo Chicken ramen they sold in a combo pack at Costco with a Tonkotsu ramen. Both types had a powder pouch and an oil pouch. The Tonkotsu was pretty mediocre, but man that Tokyo Chicken instant ramen made me cry with happiness.
My favorite Tonkotsu instant ramen is getting these pouches of a concentrated Tonkotsu paste and fat mixed in:
And I use these noodles:

Here you go
Definitely... there are so many cheap items from the produce section that can add a lot of depth to ramen. You can crack an egg into the hot broth and it'll poach quickly.
You can also order concentrated tonkotsu broth packets on Amazon and skip the powder packet that comes with the noodles. https://www.amazon.com/Japanese-Noodles-Tonkotsu-Concentration-1-Pounds/dp/B00K69ZK46/ This stuff was really good, and I used one packet for two servings.
I,ve bought this off Amazon a few times it's pretty good to for the broth. [link]
Amazon seems to like this: Japanese Noodles Tonkotsu Ramen Concentration Pork Bone Soup
I used this tonkotsu broth concentrate off Amazon for the broth.
I used this recipe for the chashu / ajitama.
I used this recipe for the shoyu tare
I used this recipe for the aroma oil, specifically the green onion oil.
I used these noodles I got from Amazon.
Overall, I was very very pleased with this bowl of ramen. The broth took over a month to get to me, but it was totally worth the wait. My plating is still crap, but I'm working on it very slowly. Next time I'll get some green onions, since I did discover that little bit of green garnish adds a lot to how the dish looks.
If you can find packs of Itsuki or Kabuki tonkotsu, I would give them a try. Kabuki also does an animal-free tonkotsu style. I've been using these packs from amazon and adding my own noodles:
