Miso Ramen with Braised Pork Belly & Marinated Soft Boiled Egg

I love to eat Japanese food but it has becoming more and more expensive nowadays. Is difficult to find one that is not so expensive and yet taste good.

Ramen is a popular Japenese Noodle Soup.  So during the weekend, I told my mum that I will cook Ramen for her. This is my first time cooking Ramen soup base from scratch. Though there is lot's of work in prepartion of the soup base to the braising of the pork belly, I enjoyed myself cooking in the kitchen and when I see the happy face of my family eating the bowl of piping hot Ramen, I felt so much appreciated.

 Marinating of the Soft Boile Egg
Prepartion of the Braised Pork Belly
 Soaking of Seaweed

Edith - cost of raw material increased so food cost kep rising. Some of my clients are switching to cheaper ingredients so as to maintain their food cost.
