TIP:  How to prepare a delicious bowl of “Hokkaido Ramen”:

1.  Prepare boiled water in a pot.
2.  Put noodle in the pot after the water is boiled and keep it boiling for approximately 5 minutes
3.  For ramen soup, please open the packet written with “スープ” (Soup base) and pour it in a bowl while boiling the noodle.
4.  Add boiled water (separately boiled) into the soup base to finalise ramen soup.
5.  Put the cooked noodle into the ramen soup on “4” and add packet labeled ‘えび油’ (Shrimp oil) into it.
6.  You can add boiled egg, thin roasted pork, seaweed and green onions per your preference.

*The most important thing to cook this ramen is separately boiling between noodle and soup. It is different from the way of cooking for general type of instant noodle.   Hope you enjoy Sapporo ramen!
