Here's my preference for ramen, I have sampled many different chef and ramen houses in Asia and US.

I prefer miso soup base with a good amounts of lard. I dislike some Tokyo ramen that was basically 50% lard.

I like medium and not thick cuts of pork belly with a good amount of blubber and meat.

I hate shrimp tempura over ramen, the panko crust just soaks up the soup and becomes this messy dough in my soup. Hate it.

I also like seawood, shredded pickles, and good portions of cooked veggies along with a decent amount of fish cake.

As for the ramen itself, I am a big fan of extra thin and bouncy ramen. Some places use slightly thicker ramen but they can be tricky because sometimes they're not cooked thorough and have hard pieces.

Extra spicy for me, always.

Kids discovered something better than mac and cheese.

They like this ramen with cheese. Sigh. Apparently it's a thing in parts of Asia now.

I used to LOVE Ramen noodles. It was pretty much my standard when I was single and/or wanted a quick lunch. Now, with the ridiculous amount of sodium in one cup of ramen noodles I dont eat it anymore. I do however LOVE going to Ramen restaurants.

There is a place near me called Ramen Yamadaya in Sherman Oaks that has the BEST ramen noodles I've tasted outside of Japan.

Naruto is also the name of the best Ramen place in Anchorage They are the only Ramen house I've seen that uses a mixture of Halibut and Pork broth. Sooooooo good! They also have more veggies than most Ramen houses I've seen.....so I get the Veg Ramen and then add the Chashu to it.

Try this, cook and drain ramen noodles (no packet) and add a dab of butter and a slice or two of cheese, kids'll love it

Chinese ramen noodle restaurants are getting quite popular. In San Diego, we have a small chain of restaurants called Tajima that does some tasty things with ramen.

Nongshim Shin Ramyun is the absolute best. My half-Korean best friend turned me on to them. Her mom owned a Korean grocery store and gave them to me by the case when I was broke and living in my first apartment. At that time, I had never seen them in local grocery stores. I've seen them at Walmart before now though.

As for the Maruchen ramen type, I like roasted chicken the most. It seems to taste a little more like a chicken soup and a tad less artificial. Not saying it's top-notch foodie food or anything.
