Spicy red miso topping and Ajituke (seasoning) kikurage on top of ramen

Kikurage (wood ear mushroom) is a common ramen topping. It adds a chewy texture and absorbs the flavors of the ramen noodles and ramen broth. We marinated kikurage to create Ajitsuke Kikurage, great with our Signature Tonkotsu Ramen!
