Although I’m not a big fan of ramen noodle, I sometimes feel like eating them in this cold weather. Ramen soup is usually pork, chicken or vegetable stock based and very tasty. On the other hand, fish stock is used for udon and soba noodle soup.
Because animal stock is used for ramen soup, it is bit oily and that gives the soup tasty flavor. There are thousands of ramen restaurants across Japan and each has their original recipe for the
Here in Perth has few ramen restaurants owned by Japanese. I’m not sure if they make soup by themselves though.

Has anyone been to any of those restaurants?
I think it’s interesting that those restaurants have quite unique ramen menu. I’ve never seen Fried Chicken Ramen or Gyoza Ramen in Japan :p Fried Chicken Ramen has Karaage (Japanese style fried chicken) on ramen noodle, and Gyoza Ramen has deep-fried dumplings on ramen noodle. Dosukoi’s simple Ramen is $6.50, it’s pretty cheap. Kai Japanese just opened few months ago, and the owner used run another Japanese restaurant in Subiaco. (popular one) At Banzai, you can enjoy ramen noodle with ranges of Japanese liquir such as chu-hi. (white peach is my favorite)
