It’s that time of year in Perth when the weather turns a bit chilly and has us thinking of ramen because, well, it’s delicious and the perfect seasonal pick-me-up. With so many unique varieties and combinations of broth, tare (seasoning), noodles and toppings, there’s a taste and flavour to satisfy every palate as well. And while a trip to Japan to slurp on a bowl of ramen would certainly be memorable, Perth has quite a few ramen restaurants serving up their own tasty variations of the iconic Japanese dish.
Try them all to find your favourite because we can’t quite decide which is best, which is actually another way of saying let’s go eat some more.
