Walking into Downtown Ramen is like walking from one country into another. At the top of the stairs you are greeted by arcade machines and graffiti on the walls with hip hop music streaming through a doorway. Through the doorway you are greeted by one of the friendly and knowledgeable waiters. There are small tables available, but sharing one of the long benches with strangers is part of the experience. Soft drinks and Japanese beer is on offer, and warm sake is served warm from traditional carafes. The bao (steamed bun) are the starter and are unbelievably delicious. The braised beef bao is simply amazing. But the star of the show is the ramen. Hot. Delicious. It’s everything you hope it to be. Chili is optional and so is the soft boiled egg. Both of which are highly recommended. The flavours are layered and each mouthful is exceptional. By far one of my favourite eating experiences on the planet.
