Noodles are hands down my favourite starchy carbohydrate, and I would be confident in saying that a perfect bowl of ramen is the pinnacle of noodle heaven.
After an enthusiastic review from my good friend, Little Swallow, I was excited to finally try Ippudo. We arrived at around 3pm, which was thankfully well after the lunchtime rush because I hate queuing.
We started with the Goma Q Japanese cucumber with sesame sauce and the Momofuku-style Ippudo Pork Bun. The cucumber was crunchy and refreshing with a clean salty tang, however the pork in the pork bun was a little dry.
However, the main event was the ramen. Ippudo’s tonkotsu broth is just deliciously rich, and the full pork flavour just has a creamy mouth feel that it pretty much sends your senses into an immediate foodgasm.
I think that I would definitely agree with Little Swallow’s assessment – best ramen ever!
