Ajisen Ramen (Melbourne Central)

The Japan-based restaurant chain Ajisen Ramen can be found in a number of locations in Melbourne, including two restaurants in the CBD. It is basically a fast-food store, but there are still some reasonably good ramen options on the menu (give the gyoza a pass). With the exception of the Tan Tan ramen, most of the ramen we ordered used the original Tonkotsu soup base.

Tan Tan Ramen – served with spicy meat, vegetables & egg in tan tan base soup

Wendy ~ This ramen had a good soup base that wasn’t too salty. The spicy mince added another layer of flavor which differentiated it from more basic ramen.

Ani ~ The pork meat was deliciously tender and the soup was very flavoursome. This is probably my favourite ramen on their menu.

Tori katsu is one of the more recent aditions to their menu.

tofu ramen

Tofu Ramen – served with tofu, egg & vegetables

The tofu ramen had a lot of tofu and was actually really filling, despite having no meat.

Verdict: The ramen tastes pretty good, but there are better options in the city of you’re looking for good quality. Ajisen’s ramen has an average price of around $11-12.

Location: Shop GD 13, Melbourne Central (and a number of other places – their website is here)
