Chocolate Ramen is back at chain restaurant Korakuen, with a new friend: White Chocolate Ramen

By Dale Roll, SoraNews24

It's February, and you know what that means: Everything is chocolate-flavored, and that includes even ramen! Ramen restaurant chain Korakuen will be bringing back their popular Chocolate Ramen, along with a new variety of White Chocolate Ramen, to celebrate this Valentine’s Day season.

Though Korakuen isn’t the first to sell either chocolate or white chocolate-flavored ramen, previous renditions we’ve tried have either been tsukemen style, in which you dip the noodles into the chocolate broth, or have used chocolate as a topping, rather than incorporating it into the broth.


Korakuen’s limited edition Chocolate and White Chocolate Ramen are different, however. The Chocolate Ramen not only uses chocolate as a topping, but includes cocoa oil in the soy sauce-based broth. The broth is thick, with faint notes of chocolate, which is a nice touch when you want to try something unusual but not overwhelming.


The new White Chocolate Ramen is slightly more decadent. It’s got a salt broth base, to which cocoa oil and cream are added, making this broth a creamy, rich, and deep experience. Topped with white chocolate, this is sure to be a pleasant upgrade from Korakuen’s usual menu.


Both ramen dishes cost 640 yen each, and will stay on the menu until March 11. You’ve got plenty of time to stop by and give them a try, so why not bring your honey to Korakuen and share a chocolaty ramen dinner with them this Valentine’s Day?

I read the title of this article with a degree of horror. After reading the article I rethought things and decided it really might not be all that terrible. One of my favorite Mexican dishes, and what very well may be the national dish of that country, is chicken mole. Another name for that dish could well be "chocolate chicken" and it is delicious.

Some things should remain savory. While its successful and it draws people, I still think Max Brenner is a disgusting place. I don't need chocolate ramen, pizza, salad, or many other savory items with a chocolate twist.

Disgusting, why mess with tradition.

Yikes, that sounds terrible. I guess people will try it out of curiousity though.
