Tonkotsu Ramen (successful version!) 豚骨濃湯拉麵 (成功版)

FINALLY! This is it! Ha! I finally got this right!!!!!!

After more research on the web, I found out the key items are onion, sesame and mirin! Yup, the soup base this time started to taste like what we had in store, but of course, this is an easy version, so it is less dense/thick than ramen place's soup stock. It was good enough to satisfy Mr. T and my stomach!

The night I made the soup base, there was a storm watch in Seattle, so everyone rushed to the grocery store stocking up......I waited so long in line just to buy a bunch of green onion. There was a three people gang with a fully loaded cart before me at the cashier. I was like....erh, should be alright, I will just wait.....15 minutes later, they finally scanned all the items in the cart and then the cashier started to scan item AGAIN! One of the old men bought stuff separatel...@(#)$(#)I$(#%*(@#$@#....!!! After walking out the store, I told myself, this ramen has to be good!!!

And so I was especially happy with the ramen heheh :D
