Tsukada Nojo’s Beauty Collagen Soup Now Sold In Frozen Pack At Don Don Donki
Bijin nabe for Chinese New Year reunion dinner!
Chinese New Year falls on February 1 this year, which means reunion hotpot season is upon us. If you’re fond of beauty collagen soup in your steamboat, here’s some good news: Japanese chicken collagen hotpot chain Tsukada Nojo’s bijin nabe soup stock is now sold at Don Don Donki’s outlets in frozen packs.
Now, this is very convenient
Each made-in-Singapore pack costs $17, and yields 750ml of beauty collagen soup. The stock is made by boiling chicken bones “for over eight hours”, and you will only need to thaw the frozen stock to its signature pudding-like consistency and boil it to make soup (add water if it’s too thick for your liking). You can also use the stock to cook porridge or noodle soup.
Collagen from Jidori chickens
According to a sign at Don Don Donki, imported Jidori chickens are apparently used for Tsukada Nojo’s collagen soup. The special American cage-free breed, which is all the rage at buzzy restaurants in the US, is raised on a vegetarian diet with no antibiotics and hormones, and is said to have more intense chicken flavour than the typical chook.
If 750ml of soup is not enough for you…
Tsukada Nojo’s restaurant outlets are also selling the collagen stock as a 1kg frozen cube for $24.61 (price after GST). Due to increased demand for the upcoming CNY, there are only 50 cubes available daily per outlet.
