Very close to what I do. I use spam and fry it in a pan first. Then season w. a little soy sauce. I also don't care for hard boiled egg but I make a Japanese rolled omelet and slice it into strips. Fish cakes are hard to come by here but I'll try it if I find it. A little fresh ginger goes a long way in this and frequently I'll add some left over veg (even if it has a sauce...like stir fry etc) or a handfull of cabbage, spinach, seaweed, etc. Good stuff...I like the pork ramen best for this but they all work.
