Ramen Ya

Some people take their ramen very seriously. Aside from your traditional ramen, think instant ramen, ramen burgers, ramen pizzas, ramen salad and pretty much ramen-everything. There's even a museum dedicated to ramen. For now, I'm happy with the classic deep bowls of broth, filled with oodles of noodles and fun. 

Nestled in the maze of Melbourne's GPO, you will find Ramen Ya - voted one of Melbounians' most loved ramen cafes.  Let's put them to the test, shall we ?


Chasu Ramen






Tsukune Ramen

Their specialty tonkotsu broth was rich, hearty and ​full of flavour - ground up pork bones slow cooked for hours and hours. The round bowls were swimming with bouncy noodles, and garnished with tender fatty chasu/tsukune (minced chicken), kamaboko swirls, bamboo shoots, pickled mustard greens & ginger, chopped spring onion and salty sheets of seaweed. Unfortunately for me, the egg was hard boiled and there was none of that gooey-goodness.  

Ramen Ya served up a mean bowl of ramen. Though they certainly hit the spot, I really did want that gooey creamy egg.  The best ? I can't say for sure.
