How To Make
To make the pork meatballs. Place garlic, scallions, fish sauce, sesame oil, and mirin in a food processors. Process to a paste then mix well with the ground pork. Roll into small 1 inch meatballs and set aside.
To make the umami seasoning place the bonito flakes and kombu in a food processor and grind to a fine powder store in a covered jar.
To make the broth. Place water in a medium pot. Add the furikake rice seasoning, the umamin seasoning and birds eye red chilies. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain broth through a cheesecloth and discard the solids. You want to get a nice clear broth. Add the fish sauce, sugar, sesame oil and vinegar. Bring to a simmer and add the pork meatballs and let simmer for 7 to 8 minutes. Until meatballs are cooked. Stir in the cilantro.
Meanwhile heat a large pan with water enough to cover the noodles and season the water with salt. Once the water is boiling remove from heat and add the rice noodles and let sit until noodles are soft. Drain and rinse with water adding a little olive oil so they don't get sticky.
