Launch of Noisy Noodler

Yes, I think I have previously professed my passionate adoration for noodles. And what better way to show this love than to create a shrine to my favourite starchy carbohydrate.  Whether I’m slurping ramen or laksa, or tucking into a tasty plate of char kway teow or ho fun, my love of noodles encompasses the spectrum of noodle offerings.

My new food blog, Noisy Noodler, will capture my noodle experiences across Sydney, on a hunt for the best noodle dishes in my home city.

Tonkotsu heaven

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.

Ippudo Sydney

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!
