Tonkutsu is the Japanese word for pork. When used in the phrase "tonkutsu broth ramen," you would have just heard the main theme of the Ramen Ya restaurant in Melbourne's CBD. Its convenient location at the Bourke Street GPO makes this food outlet central to many passing trams, thereby increasing the temptation during your lunch break.
Temptation indeed. We all know that fatty substances are the things to shun when on a diet, but all too often we simply can't help ourselves. If you are looking for the place to finally succumb to the enticement of high fat, then Ramen Ya is not to be missed. All of its Japanese noodles are coated in delectably smooth pork fat whilst maintaining that very rich Asian taste.
This restaurant comes with a special children's menu and bookings are essential for many people visiting at once. No parking is available, but that's what the trams are for.
