I Dream in Chocolate dined as a guest of SD Marketing & Ippudo. The following review is an honest and unbiased
One of the reasons we haven’t gone to Japan yet is mostly contributed to my love of ramen. The Mr thinks once we arrived in Japan we will be eating ramen everyday. I giggled at this because he isn’t very far from the truth. These days Sydney has quite a number of choices for ramen. Tonight I am back at Ippudo but at their branch in Central Park. I also spotted two new ramens I haven’t seen before their vegetable ramen (Shojin) and the miso tonkotsu.
As usual I always go for the akamaru shinaji with tamago (egg). On my previous Ippudo blog post I noted the egg at the Westfield store was a bit overdone, this time round it was perfect! Lovely and gooey, just how I like my eggs in ramen. The waiter recommended to slowly mix the the red miso but I like to add the whole miso paste in. The ramen noodles are also made fresh offsite and you have a three choices of noodle firmness either soft, medium or firm.
Mr on the other hand was keen to try the miso tonkotsu that we haven’t seen on the menu before. It had the right amount of miso in it and didn’t overpower the whole ramen. Normally I find miso ramen a bit too overpowering.
Readers do you have a favourite ramen restaurant?
