Heat sesame oil in a medium stockpot over moderate heat.
Add the minced garlic, ginger and shallot. Sautee until fragrant — approx. 2 minutes — stirring frequently.
Add the spicy bean paste, the miso paste, sesame seeds and honey; stir to combine.
Add the sake, vegetable stock, salt and pepper.
Bring to a simmer, and keep the broth to a low simmer while you prep your garnishes. Prep your garnishes before cooking your noodles as the noodles don't take long at all.
Once your garnishes are ready, prepare your ramen noodles as per the packages instructions, but lessen the suggested time by about 30 seconds since your noodles will continue to cook once the hot broth is ladled over them.
Once your noodles are ready, drain them and place them into bowls.
Ladle broth over them, garnish, and serve immediately.
