Australia’s best ramen – Taro’s

[nectar_dropcap color=”#0a0a0a”]S[/nectar_dropcap]o if you’re craving some seriously authentic ramen but you don’t have the money (or time) for a quick trip out to Japan, then Taro’s is the next best thing. I’ve been going to Taro’s shops for years now – it’s almost like stepping into a mini Japanese restaurant bubble – the decor is understated but solid, the staff are polite and friendly and the food – whoa.

Without fail, i’ll almost always go for the Tonkotsu Ramen with a draught beer. Everything in the ramen is made with clinical precision – there was a post about the noodle making machine being .2mm off. Yeah. Crazy. Crazy awesome, though – because that precision totally pays off – it still continues to be consistently one of the best bowls i’ve ever had. My only criticism is the charsiu (pork) is a little thin compared to other ramen joints, however, given that it’s Bangalow Sweet Pork (sustainable, premium quality pork) it’s easy to look past.

If you haven’t been, there’s an express store in Brisbane City, a restaurant on Racecorse Road, Ascot, and a new restaurant that just opened in South Brisbane.
