ramen o-san, haymarket

Woops. It's been a long time since I've posted anything! 

Hi, readers!

... If you guys still exist...

... So anyway, I have just returned to Sydney after 8 months in the wonderful wintery city of Edmonton! Also, it's pretty much almost Winter again here so basically I haven't been exposed to the Aussie heat since March last year ... and I'm not complaining!

Because for me, this means the perfect ramen weather continues!

Oh, say hi to O-san - the newly (well relatively..) opened ramen bar in Dixon House Food Court and also Chef Kazuteru O!

With so much recognition, professional experience and training in Japan, you can already imagine how great each bowl of ramen will taste!

His specialty ramen? Tonkotsu. And that's exactly what we order!

Tonkotsu Ramen ($9.80) with Extra Kakuni ($2.50):

The Tonkotsu broth is rich, the pork flavour is strong and quite thick. But of course, it is no where as thick as Gumshara's. The thin slices of pork belly was perfect and just so tender. The two extra thick slices of pork belly kakuni was also faultless! It was just missing one thing - a gooey egg. I won't forget it next time. (Yes, there will definitely be a next time).

The second recommendation we received was the Sumo Ramen, which has a pork and chicken based soup and gets it's name from its huge portion. Being the small eaters we were, the Sumo Ramen was definitely beyond what we could handle so we just decided to stick to a favourite of ours - the Black Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen.

Black Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen ($10.80): 
This bowl was like an upgraded version of the Tonkotsu because of the lovely and fragrant garlic oil, which didn't overpower the porky broth.

And the noodles?

I thought they were perfect! Not too thick, springy and quite firm!

Cha-Siu Rice Ball ($3.00):

Do you remember that fatty pork I was talking about? The pork belly kakuni? Imagine shredding that and making giant rice balls for snacking on later. Too good!

Oh, and if you aren't already a member of Washoku Lovers, go register now! Because if you do, you can get this cha-siu rice ball for half price - that's only $1.50!

Anyway, you guys should totally check this place out! Don't judge just because it's in a food court! It does great ramen!

Hi there! My name is Anna. I'm nineteen, in my second year of uni (UNSW) and born in Sydney. This blog is about my gastronomic adventures in Australia and abroad. It all started when I got new camera (Samsung Ex1) and since then, I've been mainly taking photos of food. So, I decided to document everything on this blog.

I'm still learning to take nice pictures - my camera isn't exactly the greatest but it works.

Oh, and I think we should get this out of the way (just in case you decide to unfriend me) I'm not a fan of chocolate or coffee. (Yes you saw right).

Anyway, enough about me - thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
