I’m an advocate of traditional Filipino food. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t welcome unorthodox approach in cooking. I also like to experiment with different recipes, whether it’s a fusion of various dishes from a place that I visited or an adaptation of a cooking demo video that I watched online. It excites me to discover new flavors inspired by various cultures and the people behind them.
This recipe is no different. It obviously takes inspiration from the Filipino Sinigang sa Miso and the Japanese Miso Ramen—both can confidently represent the culinary traditions of the countries where they come from. I have always wanted to try out this recipe simply because I was curious. How would it taste?
To be honest, I was kind of skeptic about the outcome of this dish. The main common denominator between the two national dishes is the miso, and I’m not even sure if the same type of miso is used in both recipes. Not only that, Sinigang sa Miso traditionally uses fish and seafood. But in this recipe, I used pork.
In case you’re wondering, I wasn’t high when I created this recipe :-). Sinigang-Ramen fusion dishes is not new as there are several restaurants out there that already serve this noodle dish. However, I thought the miso would add another layer of flavor. As individual dishes, miso complements both. But as a fusion, it was a feast of umami flavors!
