Not So Tonkotsu Ramen: Recipe

RECIPES | This not so Tonkotsu ramen is a twist on a classic Tonkotsu ramen . It is by no means a traditional broth as I struggled to find pigs trotters which are characteristically the base of this style of ramen. Nonetheless the combination of pork ribs, soup bones and chicken wings make a thick, creamy, rich broth which is utterly delicious.
