  11. Stir well and then take the miso soup off the heat because the noodles will become too soft. Check the seasoning and add extra miso or hot chili sauce to taste if necessary. Scoop the noodles, pork belly and spinach into large bowls. Divide the rest of the miso soup evenly. Then sprinkle the soup with the sesame seeds and serve piping hot.
