I know this is a really dumb question but I honestly don't know the answer. What's the difference between soba and ramen? I suspect it has to do with what the noodles are made of but I'd be grateful for a definitive answer. And while on the subject of noodles, what are those cellophane noodles made of? Is it true that they are made of some kind of (soy?) beans?
Thanks for being patient with an ignorant chowhound.
