About IIKO Mazesoba: IIKO Mazesoba is the first brothless ramen specialist in Australia. Mazesoba ‘まぜそば’ is a brothless ramen that replaces soup with an umami soy-based sauce. The literal translation of its name means ‘mixed noodles’, describing the way diners should mix the housemade wheat noodles, toppings and sauce prior to slurping. Mazesoba is thought to have originated in the 1950s in Nagoya.
