Today let’s talk about Miso ramen. Miso ramen is very popular, making it one of the main flavors served at ramen shops. The flavor miso, actually has a long history behind it in Japan. We will talk about its ramen history and how we serve it at Yaguchiya Ramen.
So what is Miso? This is something we get asked quite frequently when our customers are deciding which ramen to try.
Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning which is made from fermented soybeans and mixed with barely, rice, buckwheat, millet, rye, wheat, hemp seed, cycad and a few other ingredients depending on the variation. Japan actually has a long history of the use of Miso, dating back since the Neolithic Era (14,000 – 300BC). This makes Miso the youngest of the main flavors of ramen between Shio and Shoyu. However, Miso ramen originates from Hokkaido during the year 1965.
At Yaguchiya Ramen, we are serving an Iekei style Miso ramen. This ramen uses Miso paste blended with our signature Shoyu. It’s then topped with bean sprouts, chives, sweet corn and 2 slices of chashu. Please give it a try if you haven’t yet!!
