To most people, ramen is comfort food for the soul. From all-time favourite Nao to the likes of Dosukoi, we see more ramen joints opening around Perth. There’s Freshmade which was opened recently and Nomstar Ramen which has been opened for nearly a year. For our weekend lunch, Elwyn and I decided to head to Nomstar Ramen at Karawara Shopping Centre to indulge in a bowl of ramen.
We shared a Shoyu Ramen ($14). It’s a bowl of full of goodness comprising of infused soy sauce flavoured tonkotsu broth with homemade thin noodle, chashu pork, ajitama egg, cabbage, menma bamboo shoots and toasted nori seaweed. What we love about the Shoyu Ramen was the broth. The soy sauce flavoured tonkotsu broth was rich and bursting with flavoursome soy and umami flavours complementing well with the tasty chashu pork and the thinness of the noodles. The ajitama egg hits the spot being gooey and runny. It’s definitely one sexy egg right there.
We also shared a chashu pork bun ($4.50). The bun was soft and fluffy complementing well with the tender and slightly fatty pork. However, we found that the sweet sauce was slightly overpowering the flavours of the pork.
Both of us thought that the ramen was quite delicious at Nomstar Ramen. The service here was also excellent, friendly and efficient. We look forward to be back to Nomstar Ramen for another bowl of omnomnom ramen goodness.
