The best ramen restaurants in Perth to slurp up a bowl.
The winter season is upon us, and with it comes the perfect time to try and make your way through our list of Perth’s best ramen bars. With silky noodles and yummy broth to warm your soul, these ramen bars really are the best way to beat the winter chills.
Being Japan’s most popular noodle dish is a lot of pressure, but a good bowl of Ramen can simply start with a homely broth, chunks of meat/veggies and belly-filling silken noodles. The flavours of ramen can vary from a light soy-based broth to a heavenly creamy broth with Tonkotsu or Black Garlic infusions. If that sounds too mild, then dare yourself to try the bubbling ramen broth made from hellfire itself: spicy ramen tends to come in levels varying from 1 to 5.
Whether you like your Ramen with extra meat, or if you’re quite the opposite and prefer vegetarian/vegan options, we’ve got you covered this winter.
So put down that cheap packet of 2-minute ramen and cure your Perth winter blues with these authentic bowls of ramen.
