Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat- or (occasionally) fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork, dried seaweed, kamaboko, green onions, and occasionally corn. Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning produced by fermenting rice, barley, and/or soybeans with salt and the fungus, the most typical miso being made with soy.
