I have heard about the reputation of Ryo’s Noodles in Crows Nest for quite a while. However, travelling across the bridge just to enjoy a bowl of ramen isn’t exactly at the top of my list.
Fortunately, they open an outlet a lot closer to home. Ryo’s Noodles just (literally) opened yesterday, 8 October 2015, in Bondi Junction! There were no big fanfares that accompanied the opening. Just a simple, business as usual with a few flyers being handed out.
Most of the stuff on their menu is ramen. They have a choice of pork soup, chicken soup, cold noodles and vegetarian noodles. Other dishes include a couple of curry rice and rice balls. But, you should be coming in for Ryo’s Ramen.
Ramen in spicy hot flavoured soup with roast pork, egg and shallots – $13.50
The ramen’s portion was quite big and they use the wriggly noodles instead of the straight ones. As the name stated, the ramen was actually quite hot! There were decent amount of toppings with quite generous serving of soup.
Ramen noodles in pork and fish stock with eggs, roast pork, fried shallots – $15.00
There were more elements in this ramen than the last one. The layers of fish stock was very visible (and possibly quite fattening! ^_^). The soup was also a bit thicker than the previous ramen. I quite liked the extra fried shallots that gave a crunchier taste to the ramen.
Cod roe rice ball – $5.00
I decided to order the cod roe rice ball because I am actually quite a big fan of rice balls. It looked a bit pricey, but the rice ball was actually pretty big!
The final verdict for Ryo’s Noodles Bondi Junction
