In a large soup pot, combine broth, garlic, ginger and chicken and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add soaked and drained noodles, mirin, brown rice vinegar, tamari and red pepper flakes. Continue to cook the soup for another 2 to 3 minutes until steaming hot. Stir in cilantro and serve immediately. The longer the soup sits, the thicker the noodles become.
