Market Ramen is all about making perfect tonkotsu-style ramen. Each bowl starts with a rich bone broth made from local pork, housemade noodles cooked to order and roasted pork belly–with garnishes of green onions, pickled mustard greens, ginger, roasted mushrooms, nori and a slow-cooked egg.
This style of ramen began in the Hakata district of Fukuoka City in Kyushu. Here in Eugene, Market Ramen is emulating that tradition with ramen made by hand using local ingredients and meats. Tonkotsu means “pork bones” in Japanese–and the broth is the central ingredient, made with pork from Deck Family Farms and Tails and Trotters. The noodles are made in house using wheat flour, salt, water and kansui, an alkaline mineral water.
Designed in the casual style of an authentic ramen shop, Market Ramen is a pop-up by Marché chef Rocky Maselli and the team from Marché Restaurant Group, and the latest addition to the Public Market Eateries at the 5th Street Public Market. Twelve seats at the counter offer the full experience, with traditional condiments and eclectic Japanese tableware. Read our feature story.
