I made it to this Japanese noodle house located in Crows Nest yesterday, 10 minutes away from the CBD. Ryo's noodle house is very famous for Ramen lovers in Sydney, located in a relatively quiet area yet people come all the way from around Sydney to slurp one of the best ramen in town.
As soon as I walked through the noren I knew that I'm in love with this restaurant. The paper scrolls on the wall displaying the menu in Japanese script just makes this place looks so authentic and traditional. Ramen starts from $9 and $12 for the house special ramen.
Normally I love the tonkotsu ramen (pork soup) but this time I picked a Tokyo style soy sauce ramen and a salty ramen with prawn meatballs. The Tokyo ramen comes in chicken stock soup with pork, egg, bamboo shoot and a big square nori (seaweed).
Even better for big eaters! If a big bowl of ramen is just not enough for you, just say 'kaedama', and the staff will refill your bowl with extra noodle for only $3, make sure you leave enough amount of the soup for the second serve of the noodle.

Is it really a good place for ramen? well.. you can tell from the queue snaking into the street
