This time we ventured to Hakataya Ramen at Sunnybank, which everyone has been raving about. I believe they have Hakataya in Sydney as well as in the Gold Coast.
Shop 27b Sunnybank Plaza Cnr Mains Rd & McCullough St
I used to pass by the shop a lot, but always during lunch time and the queue is ridiculously long.. Which shows how popular this little joint is. The shop is quite small with some sitting inside and some just outside.
As it's Sunday, we actually rocked up at 10.30am, just to beat the queue and had it for brunch instead ;) it was ridiculously hot unfortunately and no air conditioning ;( but still ... =)
There's only 4 noodle dishes in their menu and we all had the 1st dish, Nagahama Ramen, Japanese Pork Noodle soup. The soup is boiled with pork bone and simmered for 39 hours. Not surprisingly, the stock is very tasty. From reading their FaceBook page, they use specially selected bones from Australian pork. It seems they are also free from chemical seasonings and preservatives.
While having your bowl of noodle soup, you can also order another helping of noodles - which is called 'Kaedama'. Score!!! It's like having 2 serve of noodles for just $10!!
The first bowl of noodle is actually quite filling, but my 6 year old niece could finish 1 1/2 serving of noodles!
The noodle also comes with a little side spicy pickled Chinese vegetable.. Which is quite salty on its own, but goes really well in with the soup.
