Miso Ramen

Miso Ramen

I guess I had made almost all the common ramen variation here like the shoyu, tonkotsu, beef, spicy and even made our own ramen flavour and I think we missed one more flavour, the Miso ramen.

Miso ramen if compared to the others is quite a new version where it started its popularity during 1965. Developed in Hokkaido this feature of this type of ramen are the generous amounts of miso combined with oily chicken broth which gives it rich, nutty, semi-sweet and very hearty soup. Like any ramen you can add any toppings you want but the most popular ones used are spicy bean paste, butter and corn, ground pork, cabbage, sesame seed, nori and chopped garlic.

  6. Miso Ramen…. holy YARM! I am obsessed with Asian soups since returning from my travels this year. I reckon we eat these types of foods at least 5-6 times a week. Adding your recipe into the mix. Mmmm!
