Menya Noodle Bar (Chinatown)

Hi all, i'm finally back! And if you were wondering what was the last post about, you will find the answer in this post! =)
This weekend was quite hectic for me - thus the lack of posts - but i was very fortunate to have time (like 3 hours) in Sydney to try Menya Noodle Bar (Shop TG8, 8 Quay Street, Haymarket Sydney)! I had it all planned out and was looking forward to try their ramen! I heard that it is one of the top Japanese Ramen Restaurants in Sydney!

As soon as i've found Menya, i saw that it was quite packed...that kinda got me worried as we didn't have much time. Luckily, we were able to get seats within 15 minutes after ordering at the counter; the staff at Menya were quite efficient and not long after we were seated, the food arrived! We ordered a Wafu Tonkotsu Menya Ramen and a MEGA Karami Tonkotsu Ramen (chilli pork mince)! The MEGA size has 2 times the standard noodle & toppings for an additional $7.50 - i guess it's worth it, if you are really really hungry OR if you want to challenge your friends!
The pork in the Menya Ramen was so tender and yummy, the soup base was lovely too! Apparently it's a seafood based soup combined with the pork bone soup. The chilli pork mince in the Karami Tonkotsu Ramen was tasty too! Wouldn't mind going back to try their rice dishes and other ramen choices.

Menya Ramen, does the photo look familiar?

That's the difference between standard size ramen (front) and MEGA size ramen (back)

I don't mind waiting for seats at a restaurant if they let you order while you're waiting - or at least let you peruse the menu so you are ready to order when you go to sit down!

Hey Mavis!

not sure is Menya is one of the top! but you should have told me you were in syd! Even if it was only for 3 hours i would have shown you a few more "top" ramen places just within walking distance of menya to compare! Have u heard of gumshara ramen?
