Ippudo Releases “Karaka Men” as Newest Souvenir Instant Noodles!

Chikaranomoto Holdings Company has added “Karaka Men” (tonkotsu pork bone ramen with special spicy miso flavors) to the lineup of products under its popular “Omiyage Ramen” (souvenir ramen noodles) series that is available in some Ippudo shops in Japan, Ippudo’s online store, at the airports in Kyushu and major retail stores, among other spots. Further, the complete packaging and the directions on how to prepare the ramen have been modified.


「The “O-Uchi IPPUDO” (Ippudo at home) series has a total of seven products in its lineup, comprising the original “Ippudo Shiromaru 1 Shoku Hako” (one serving of original tonkotsu ramen in a box), “Ippudo Akamaru 1 Shoku Hako” (one serving of tonkotsu ramen with miso paste in a box), “Ippudo Karaka 1 Shoku Hako” (one serving of tonkotsu ramen with spicy miso in a box), “Ippudo Karashi Takana 250g” (250g of spicy, pickled mustard greens), and “Ippudo Kaedama 2 Shoku Hako” (two servings of ball of noodles in a box), along with the “Hot Moyashi Sauce” (hot bean sprout sauce) and “Hiden no Tonkotsu Dashi” (secret tonkotsu broth) that were updated in March this year. Now, there are more products that will let you taste that Ippudo goodness in the comfort of your own dining table at home anytime.


The directions for making the ramen are now provided in four languages (Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean) in response to the increased clamor from overseas. Try to get a hold of these special products as they are perfect as souvenirs and gifts.
