Do want to try authentic Japanese ramen?
Taro's Ramen and Cafe


Our Japanese friend Chi recommended we try Taro's Ramen and Cafe as the best place to try authentic noodles in Brisbane. There are two restaurants in Brisbane, one on Edward Street in the city and the one we visited in on Racecourse Road in Ascot.

When we arrived at our tables, we had to work out the menu which was displayed on an iPad. My dining partner and myself both ordered the Shoyu Ramen. This is a bowl of golden triple soup (vegetable, chicken and dried seafood) flavoured with bungalow pork, scallop and soy sauce, and topped with charsiu, egg, shallots, seaweed and bamboo. The base price is $13.90, but you can add or remove ingredients.

The restaurant specialises in ramen dishes, but you could order kara salad rice, pork kimchi rice, chicken curry, prawn curry, sides and many other Japanese options.

Taro's uses freshly made noodles, organic free range eggs, and no msg and no preservatives. The bowls arrived promptly and the ramen noodles have bite, but aren't al dente like pasta. The stock was delicious and not too salty. In retrospect, I would have liked to order an extra slice of pork.

They are fully licenced, so we tried a tasting platter of sake. We received three shots of sake - Chokara, Ippin and Suishin for $13.50. They also serve Japanese beers like Sapporo, Kirin, Asahi, Yebisu, Echigo and Kujukin. Alternatively, you can order ureshino green tea, wine or soft drinks.

Taro's have weekday lunch specials and a special dish of month.

Taro's Ramen and Cafe is a great spot for authentic Japanese food, which we will now be recommending to our friends.
