    Dear chef-talk gentlemen

      I am a home cook and i tried making ramen before and a matter came up on my mind so i have a question regarding something in japanese ramen.

      Now i know ramen consists of 4 common parts which are the soup, tare or style, noodles, and toppings my question is regarding the soup. I always see broth or stock used as the soup i never seen stews, braises, meat jus, gravy or others used in ramen.

    how come and would it be possible to use them as soup or is there a certain rule or reason that these can be used?

      Therefore i am requesting your input on this matter and  please help me on this getting this inquiry solved.

    Many thanks,

    Lookup tsukamen ramen. Is that really ramen?

    What youre really asking is if you make a completely different dish like beef stew and throw ramen noodles in, is it ramen? Thats too philosophical for me. I will say words have meanings and if I order ramen on a menu I have certain expectations and would be disappointed if they are not met.
