Ramenya Bourke St

Cost: $10-15
Cost rating: 4/5
Taste rating: 6.5-7/10
Overall rating: 6.5-7/10
Would I come back? Yes.

Ramenya on Bourke is part of the same branch as Ramenya @ GPO. In my opinion, Ramenya on Bourke has better ramen.

Paper lantern lights/ Look like glowing jellyfish/ Without tentacles

Cool drinks cabinet/ It’s well stocked with ramune/ Nostalgic soda

“This spoon is too big”/ Not so, ramen fiend of mine/ Good for sipping broth

 

KIMCHI CHASHU RAMEN
Taste: 6.5-7/10
Would I order it again? Yes.

Yay, it has kimchi!/ More toppings than GPO/ More well lit as well

Ramenya on Bourke St seems to be the superior branch for ramen. There are more toppings and the ambiance is lighter than the one at GPO. There are 3 choices for broth: Shoyu, Miso and Tonkotsu. Shoyu has the lightest taste. Miso is still light-tasting but can be very salty. Tonkotsu is the creamiest broth, made from pork bones. In the picture, the broth still seems thin, it’s probably either shoyu or miso.

 

CHASHU TONKOTSU RAMEN
Taste: ?
Would I order it again?

Goodness, noodle soup!/ Quick photo and we tuck in/ Slurping permitted 

This is the same as Kimchi chashu ramen, without the kimchi. This one has tonkotsu broth.

Ramenya GPO

Location: Shop 25G Melbourne GPO 350 Bourke St CBD
Cost: $10-15
Cost rating: 4/5

Would I come back? No.

There are two ramenyas in the city block district. One at GPO and one further along Bourke St. Ramenya GPO has been disappointing. I would rather go next door (Kenzan) and have their ramen or udon. We arrived late in the day, so perhaps that is why the gyoza were so pasty.

Sexy legs ‘leven/ Admiring typography/ Lo, table number

 

CURRY PRAWN BENTO
Taste: 6/10
Would I order it again? No.

Bit o’ everything/ Compartmentalised lunch box/ Dollar for the sauce

Really average. The gyoza skins are very thin and pasty, and the filling is just passable. Nothing special here.

 

SEAFOOD GYOZA RAMEN
Taste: 5/10
Would I order it again? No.

Mystery gyoza/ Its contents an enigma/ I don’t want to know

The gyoza are consistantly pasty, and the skins too thin. They fall apart easily. The seafood filling the gyoza taste vaguely fishy, I have no idea what’s inside. Aside from seafood gyoza, there’s also spring onions, pickled ginger, seaweed, pickled vegetable and naruto fishcake (the pinked and sliced fishcake with the pink swirl). The other sides are okay. If the gyoza were better, I’d come back.
