Sydney Trotting - Gumshara Ramen

We had a great trip to Sydney over the Easter break. Me and Yoshi trotted around this town like a couple of mad horses wanting to see, do and eat everything. Sydney is undoubtedly a beautiful city, playing host to iconic old buildings and structures; most famous the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. The madness and chaos of this big city is neutralised by the great scenic views and excellent food.


The first thing we did here was to head down town to China Town, mind you we haven't even checked into our hotel room. Dragging our bags, we headed to a ramen shop called "GUMSHARA". I was told prior to coming here that there he only makes a limit 10 bowls of pork spare rib ramen and I want to be one of that 10 !

This bowl of noodles is Mad! I ordered the Pork Spare Rib Ramen; being the greedy person that I am, I added extra Char Siu, extra eggs and a side of pickled chili cabbage. The soup here is cooked for 7 days, made out of 120kgs of pork bones and soy. It is so thick you could almost chew it!



The first slurp was just magic, you can taste the hard work put into this bowl of ramen. The char siu was soft, full of flavours and just melted like butter. The spare rib was a really juicy, the noodles were nice and firm, and the boiled eggs was marinated and boiled to perfection. My greediness did get the better of me, thanks to all those extra toppings I was struggling to finish this bowl. One other great thing about this bowl of ramen is that after the meal, it leaves you with a free lip gloss made out of collagen
