Ramen Love xoxo

Melbourne is a melting pot of cultures. A food haven. Vietnamese, Italian, Greek, Arabic…you name it and you’re likely to find a restaurant serving that cuisine.

I seldom eat out in Melbourne tho. My family lives here and everytime I come home, I always make the most of my mum’s cooking. 🙂 But out and about on a cold Melbourne afternoon, my sister and I stopped for something warm. Ramennnnnn

Who could resist this delicious Japanese noodle dish. We enjoyed this indulgence when we used to live in New Zealand. And there was this place in Auckland that served fantastic ramen. It was not a fancy place rather it was like an old, “dirty”, and cramped ramen house in Japan. So authentic with the cooks preparing the food infront of you, the big pots of boiling stock and noodles taking much room of their tiny kitchen. I  particularly like the enthusiastic welcome they give each diner coming in. A loud “irrasshaimase!” A Japanese greeting to show respect to customers walking into a place of business.

Ramen Ya in downtown Melbourne is however “mainstream.” A modern restaurant with Japanese-inspired decor. But their ramen is definitely still traditional. In fact, they say they are the tonkotsu ramen specialist.

My tonkotsu charshu ramen. Plus gyoza on the side. Yum

Can’t argue with that as I left my bowl of ramen empty and my stomach full 🙂
