What makes a bowl of ramen irresistible? Deeply developed broth, thoughtful toppings, perfectly paired noodles and the elusive, all-important umami flavor. Here, we break down the elements of a perfect ramen dish.

Umami, the savory flavor you can't quite put your finger on, is found in ingredients like mushrooms, konbu, soybeans and chicken. Difficult to describe, impossible to ignore.

 The 5 elements of ramen appeal to taste, aroma, texture and aesthetic. By arranging these elements like notes in a chord, the ramen harmonies are endless.

Noodles come in all shapes and sizes. They are selected to pair perfectly with the other elements of the ramen dish based on surface area, retention and slurp volume.
