Authentic Japanese Ramen Recipe? Anyone??

My Dear Chowhounders,

I come to you for advice on making what I consider to one of the most delicious meals. My Google search and a sweep of this website's recipe section have left me unsatisfied. So many people love this dish! How can there not be numerous easy to follow recipes for it??

I'm looking for a recipe for authentic Japanese ramen. No "Top Ramen" or "Maruchun" now. I'm looking for recipes that include fresh noodles (well, just not "Top Ramen" noodles) and steps for making the broth. I'm also looking for places where I can buy the ingredients. I live in New York, but when I enter an oriental grocery stories, I have no idea which noodles to buy. For broths, I particularly love seaweed and miso broth. If anyone has any clues on this seemingly mysterious process, fill me in!

I am addicted to Men Kui Tei in the East Village, but I need to learn how to make this delicious dish myself, so I can have it anywhere at any time! If you know the ingredients and particularly where in the city I can buy them, that would absolutely fantastic.

Someone out there must know! Help!

Yours truly,
ramen lover
