Black Tonkotsu at Tensai Ramen Rotterdam

Today I want to talk about my favorite ramen of Tensai Ramen in Rotterdam: Black Tonkotsu Ramen.

Just look at this piece of art.

Soft, salty, sweet deep lingering flavor in the broth. Chewy noodle texture, which is Hakata style noodles as I see on the menu. A few crunchy menma (bamboo) and crunchy wood ear. A light salty soft boiled egg, still gooey yellow-orange. Three thick pieces of chashu aka fat pork belly and some spring onions.

I like the Black Tonkotsu more than the normal Tonkotsu, because it has more flavor with the black garlic oil. Every time I take a sip of the soup it’s like caressing my tongue with umami or something which is very addicting. Just like eating chips, I want to eat more and more. Sometimes it gets too salty, then I stop. When I start again, the salty taste is less and I can continue eating. It’s like magic soup.

Also if I compare Black Tonkotsu with the Tonkotsu of Yokohama Ramen Saito, this one is more elegant and soft, like a pretty lady sitting on a boat. Saito’s tonkotsu is powerfull and heavy, maybe like fighter. So I visualized the Black Tonkotsu lady.
