For the miso broth: Poach the bacon in 1 quart water for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, soak the kombu in 2 quarts of water. Combine the two liquids, then using a fine-mesh cone strainer, steep the miso paste and bonito flakes into the broth. Simmer very slowly for 1 hour, still with the strainer set into it (do not boil or the broth will become murky). Remove the strainer and the kombu from the broth and keep the broth warm.
For the ramen: Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the noodles. Cook about 7 minutes, then strain and place in a wide serving bowl.
