The space features an open kitchen, with wooden ceiling accents throughout. There's window and bar seating, as well as table and chairs towards the rear near the kitchen. A large pink neon sign depicts a bowl of noodles and a frothy beer, which, now I think about it, is probably why we each ordered a beer with our noodles. We chose a locally brewed Yulli's Seabass Lager ($9.00) .
The menu here is intentionally simple, (5 ramen, including a vegan option), so if you like ramen, then this is where you want to be. You can begin with entrees such as edamame with chilli sea salt ($4.50) or pork gyoza ($8.00 for 5 pieces) if you want to - or do as we did - Save your appetite for the main dish - Ramen. Hakata-style noodles are made fresh daily on the premises. When ordering, you have the option to add chilli, black garlic and miso and customise to your liking.
Friendly staff delivered our meals to us quickly. Soup ramen ranges from $16.90 - $18.80. The vegan option is served with specialty tare seasoning, grilled tomato with black pepper, seasoned bamboo and shallots and extra toppings can be added. A sweet, light and fragrant dish.
