Gumshara Ramen, Haymarket

What? A ramen post on Everybody Loves Ramen??

Yes, yes you’re probably wondering whether I even love ramen.  But the truth is there’s not much good ramen around Parramatta (that I know of…if you got the scoop lemme know), and I don’t make it into the city as much as I would like.

So when the opportunity does show itself, the best place I can think of to eat a steamy bowl of ramen is Gumshara in the Eating World food court in Chinatown.
I won’t dive into to much detail — there are some great posts around.

Gumshara’s menu is pretty straightforward — pick your broth, pick some toppings if you want.  Grab your number, then some chopsticks and a spoon from the communal food-court cutlery buckets and wait. Anxiously.  For like 3-5 minutes.  After your order comes up you can add some condiments, which are complimentary and sitting on the end of the bench.  Some toasted sesame seeds and pickled ginger go nicely.

The tonkotsu broth (which you can read about in other posts if you like) is thick with collagen — a product of boiling pork bones and marrow down for hours. Yes, I said hours.  It’s slurpy, salty and great for winter.  The noodles have a bit of bite to them (perfect) and will fatten in the hot broth if you eat it improperly (meaning if you don’t devour it in less than 10 minutes).

The famous bowl I haven’t tried yet (stupid me) is the special pork spare rib ramen — they apparently make only 10 bowls a day but.

In addition — Gumshara is a cheap eat — around $10-12 a bowl (give or take for extras).  If Eating World is busy the place gets swarmed with international Uni students & Japanese hipsters.

Just for lolz — and coz it’s true.  Itadakimasssssu!!1!11!!1!!!!1!!

    I couldn’t finish my bowl of pork bone tonkatsu…so rich and SO huge! There’s a good ramen bar at Berkelouw Bookshop in Newtown…if you’re ever over that way. Made by a Swedish dude who has “learnt the art of ramen”…he loves it, and so should you.
