Round the Clock Ramen in Melbourne
Whether 4am or 4pm you're keen on some tasty Asian food. Oftentimes these cravings can go unsatisfied - for even in the afternoon you may restaurants keep odd hours between the lunchtime and dinner seatings . For times like this - and really anytime or day or night - Menya Sandaime is worth a call by.
Having opened in early July with a mission to bring a Tokyo-like experience to Melbourne, it is a solid spot a Melburnian can visit anytime they are hungry; and around the clock: for Menya is open 24 hours and 7 days a week.
Of course, great as the concept of an 'open all the time' restaurant is, the chief consideration shall always how good is the food? On this it can be said this Russel St restaurant very much delivers. The food is flavoursome, tasty, and generously proportioned.
The menu on offer is somewhat elemental - in that Menya has a choice of a couple of ramen bowls and around 10 or so appetisers - yet, as distinct from being a bad thing however, it is actually quite a virtue. This is a menu a regular would have chance to work their way through after a few visits, and learn their favourite dishes.
Instead, this just shouldn't go unmentioned in case you and friends had your heart set on trying 20 different dishes appetisers one night - and from a menu the size of a newspaper - for something like that you've many options just a few blocks away in Tattersalls Lane.
Further to the food alone, Menya also has a number of drinks. Alongside being a licensed restaurant - so you've chance to sip a beer while munching your noodles - there is also a good offering of Japanese sodas, as well as the ever-popular Coca Cola.
Finally, should be said the ambiance of Menya is also good. To be sure, it appears this is a place that must get very busy - and at very odd hours - yet as well as the staff remaining calm and polite, the wider enviroment of the restaurant is warm and inviting. So, if yet to try this restaurant there is always chance to do so - anytime day or night - and you're unlikely to regret it when you do.
Menya Sandaime, a ramen bar open all the time; and sure to win many fans for the quality of food and environment on offer around the clock.
