Located down the stairs in Dixon House Food Court is Ramen bar O-san and there’s a cluster of these in the Haymarket/Chinatown area. There’s Gumshara, Hakata Maru, Ikkyu just on that one stretch and all in the chinatown foodhalls. What to expect? Delicious Ramen, and there’s also rice bowls.
Black Garlic Tonkotsu $10.80 – we get a nice serve of Ramen with nice and thin charshu style pork – quite good flavour on the pork and this is an appealing bowl of noodles and ramen. The broth itself is light and flavoursome but it did smell/taste more white peppery than garlic. Still, delicious and great cold weather Ramening. They’re famed for their tonkotsu so get these. Mmmm black garlic.
Pork Belly Rice Bowl $6 At 6 bucks, this was hard to resist. You’ll get a reasonable sized bowl with hunks of braised pork belly. Its actually a decent dish if a bit homemadey and basic. Can’t quibble at the price. What a cheap eat.
We also had a Soy Ramen – Chris ate his before the camera got out. That good.
Osan as mentioned is more Ramen for Sydney siders and choice is never a bad thing. For aficinados of Ramen, this is one to check out.
