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.
