For Ramen rookies:
Ramen (ラーメン rāmen?, IPA: [ɽaːꜜmeɴ]) 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 (チャーシュー chāshū?), dried seaweed (海苔 nori?), kamaboko, green onions and occasionally corn. Almost every locality in Japan has its own variation of ramen, from the tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen of Kyushu to the miso ramen of Hokkaido. Courtesy of Wikipedia
