WHAT IS JAPANESE RAMEN?

Ramen is nothing more than a wheat noodle soup often accompanied with thin slices of boiled pork roast, seaweed, spring onions and komaboko. Ramen is a Japanese dish made with surimi and blue fish and often includes aged or marinated eggs in soy sauce. What matters for a good ramen is the broth and the way in which the various ingredients are combined to restore the unmistakable flavor of the ramen.

There are many variations of ramen based on the type of broth, the four main ones are the Shio broth (light and salty broth), the Tonkotsu (made with pork bones), the Shòyu (very dark based on chicken and vegetables) and the Miso (condiment derived from soybeans).
