Noodles from the ramen capital of Japan
Ippudo is an authentic Japanese restaurant with an international presence. It has over 80 stores in Japan and has gained a foothold in Australia, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. In Australia, all 4 of Ippudo stores are in Sydney: the CBD (Westfield), Broadway (Central Park), Chatswood, and North Ryde (Macquarie Centre).

Ippudo at Macquarie Centre now accepts dine in, but the queue is usually long due to limited seating capacity under physical distancing requirements.

The Ippudo at Macquarie Centre is highly visible. It is one of the restaurants accessible without entering the mall itself. Whether you are from the Macquarie University train station or the bus interchange, it is not easy to miss Ippudo. It is beside Max Brenner, to the left of the mall entrance.

Ippudo is popular for ramen. In winter time, hot ramen just warms you up.

So what does Ippudo brings to the plate? While it has some variety of food in the menu, from appetisers, buns, and gyoza to salad, rice meals, and desserts, one generally seeks out Ippudo for its noodles. Ippudo, after all, originated from Japanese ramen capital, Hakata.

Spice up your ramen at Ippudo.

When ordering noodles at Ippudo, be ready with your choice between soft, firm, or just medium. There are three fundamental ramen meals in the menu, and these are shiromaru motoaji (not spicy), akamaru shinaji (bordering on being spicy), and karakamen (a little spicy). If you think your bowl of noodles is not enough, you can order an extra serving, it is called kaedama in the menu. (NOTE that reference on being spicy is relative to my palate).

Ippudo is at the Herring Road side of Macquarie Centre just across from Macquarie University

If it's ramen, it has to be Ippudo.
