Can't get enough of that yummy, warm goodness called ramen? For those not too familiar with Japanese cuisine, ramen is a bowl of Japanese noodles with a delicious broth - whether it be miso, pork broth or soy-based.

Often there's a tasty half of a boiled egg, bean sprouts and shallots in it along with some kind of meat. I've gotta say I'm a huge fan. So I'm always on the lookout for delicious ramen restaurants. You'll find that a lot of ramen restaurants in Sydney are centred around Chinatown or the CBD.

I've been to Ramen Kan a few times, and have enjoyed it every time. The restaurant is charming and can get very busy, which unfortunately might mean a long queue has formed before you even put down your name on that dreaded piece of paper and tear off that little tab with a number on it. Ah yes, it's one of those places.

I also like going to Ton Ton Ramen if I'm watching a movie at George Street Events Cinemas and need a super-quick dinner. The restaurant is takeaway style - you order at the counter and find a seat (if you can find a seat, that is). Recently I also tried Ajisen Ramen, which is pretty decent.

Ramen at Menya

But thus far my favourites are On Ramen in Haymarket and Menya Noodle Bar (conveniently in three locations in Sydney City). I've talked about Menya in one of my previous articles, but I can't stress enough how much I love the spicy ramen there.

On Ramen is a cute little eatery near Capitol Square. Many of my friends highly recommended it for being the most authentic ramen in Sydney that they could find. Though I can't say that I've been to Japan, all I know is that the ramen here is amazing.

What's your favourite ramen restaurant in Sydney? I'd love to know.

Gumshara Ramen in Eating World food court would be my pick. The tonkotsu ramen is out of this world and it must be said, not for the faint-hearted. Ichi Ban Boshi is another favourite of mine, with honourable mentions for Ajisen Ramen and Ramen Kan. I’ve heard a lot of buzz about Menya Noodle Bar and Ryo’s Noodles - so those two are definitely on my list of places to visit.
