My final creation for the summer, “Steak Mazemen with Aojiru Noodles”! Also, I have decided to do a mazemen dish that utilizes a protein that I rarely use for ramen: beef.

I am brainstorming ideas and getting hungry thinking about what could come of the final product ✌❤

ETA: Here it is, “Kasane Miso Tsukemen”:

This is my double broth miso ramen, but with some twists! Instead of my original recipe that focused on miso & curry, I focused on miso and lemon.

The base is a gyokai tonkotsu with chopped onion, hojicha ma-yu, chili powder, and lemon juice. After pouring in the broth, I topped the bowl with scallion, lemon slice, gyofun, black pepper and chili threads. I love the flavor that the lemon brings! I added some extras while eating lol

My bf added kimchi to his, and minus the gyofun topping! Looked tasty, in my opinion! ^-^

The chashu pork was tea-smoked and the chicken was lightly boiled.


• It’ll feature the familiar miso flavor blend. However, I will trade the buttery, curry chicken flavors for summer-friendly lemon, smokey/sweet gyokai tonkotsu.
• Utilizing medium-thick, straight tsukemen noodles.

It was exciting to do a collab ramen dish with Hōjicha Co. and I present to you a unified creation utilizing both their Kyoto-grown and distributed tea with Flying Crane Ramen’s artisanal ramen and broth. It is a Hōjicha Shoyu Tsukemen [Vegan Set]:

From far left: Hōjicha Tsukemen Noodles with boiled cabbage, glass of plum hōjicha iced tea garnished with a cherry, fried lotus root slices and fried tofu cube, and shoyu vegan broth flavored with Japanese sweet potato, shoyu, shiitake and a variety of almost 7 different stewed vegetables and aromatics.
“Hōjicha Marr Oil (Ma-yu)”: This was made using their finely grained Hōjicha Powder and my blend of aromatic oil. This intentionally is not as intense as the ma-yu from burnt garlic. This version of ma-yu that I crafted is meant to be suited for vegan, seafood or even chicken based-broths.
Toppings (some not visible): Hōjicha Marr Oil, Black Sesame Seeds, Benishouga and Fresh Scallions
