  • Chaco Ramen Bondi

    Bondi Beach, Sydney, New South Wales

Walk into either of two outposts, Bondi or Darlinghurst, and you’ll feel like you’re in Tokyo. Be sure to order a bowl of the Fat Soy, complete with Chashu pork, half egg, black fungus, nori, and shallots.

  • Gogyo

    Surry Hills, Sydney, New South Wales

    With 80 seats, all usually taken, Gogyo has made a name for itself due to its intensely flavoured Kogashi-style charred ramen which sees the miso and shoyu base burnt to add depth and increase that all-important umami. Our faves? The signature Kogashi Miso; a chicken broth with a charred miso base, and the Tonkotsu Modern; a silky pork broth with pork belly chashu.
