Ippudo karaage chicken (5pcs) $7
When karaage chicken is on the menu, karaage chicken is ordered. Simple as that. Ramen is definitely a belly-filler so while I don't think the meal needed a starter, it's just so difficult to pass up fried chicken!
Akamaru Shinaji Special $24
Ippudo's original tonkotsu broth enhanced with special blended miso paste and fragrant garlic oil. Served with thin noodles, flavoured egg, pork belly chashu, roasted seaweed, flavoured black mushoom, flavoured bamboo shoots and spring onions.
Described as a refined, modern-style ramen, the Akamaru is definitely my favourite ramen at Ippudo. I love the gorgeous red stained broth that tickles the palate gorgeously. I order my noodles medium but you also have the option of hard or soft. The flavour of the broth is rich, robust and honestly a party in your mouth. If you're after a more mild broth I'd probably recommend a different ramen but I personally love this broth.
Miso Tonkotsu Special $25
Ippudo's signature pork broth infused with red miso. Topped with flavoured egg, pork belly chashu, roasted seaweed, flavoured black mushrooms, flavoured bamboo shoots, corn, bean sprouts, cabbage and spring onions.
A little more rich and decadent than the Akamaru, the Miso Tonkotsu is another favourite of mine. I find the flavours more complementary than the former which is more flavourful on a variety of levels.
