PRLog - Dec. 6, 2012 - PHILADELPHIA, PA (December 2012) Genji Sushi, provider of all-natural sushi and Japanese inspired cuisine at 160 Whole Foods Market locations, has introduced two new Miso Tonkotsu Ramen bowls made with freshly-chopped vegetables and authentically prepared ramen noodles, bringing restaurant-quality ramen to Whole Foods Markets.
This Hokkaido style Miso Tonkotsu Ramen combines two of the most popular and beloved flavors of ramen: Tonkotsu pork broth and Miso broth. In contrast to the selections commonly found in grocery stores, the Genji bowls are all made in Whole Foods Markets by Genji Sushi Chefs daily.
Says Genji Corporate Executive Chef Takao Iinuma, “Though traditional Japanese Ramen is gaining popularity in the USA, many customers only know the freeze-dried instant ramen they find in their local grocery store. We look forward to sharing a more authentic ramen that is still easy to prepare at home, but full of the kinds of flavors and textures that can only come from fresh ingredients.”
Noodles are topped with chopped carrots, scallions, and corn, and a tonkotsu miso paste that dissolves with the addition of piping hot water to quickly cook the noodles and create a distinctly classic broth. These prepped bowls will maintain their freshness throughout the day, and can easily be transported home or to the office and finished with boiling hot water.
The Miso Tonkotsu Ramen toppings will include two options to start: Shrimp Tempura and Roasted Pork (Chāshū). Each 33 fl oz bowl will be priced at approximately $8.49, although pricing will vary slightly by state.
Expanding their line of grab-and-go soups, Genji is proud to demonstrate a continued dedication to creating authentic, 100% all-natural Japanese cuisine for American consumers on the go.
