Miso Ramen $8.80 with half soft-boiled egg $0.50
The miso ramen is pretty as a picture, with nice thick slices of pork and ramen in a miso and pork broth, topped with pickled bamboo, seaweed, shallots and saffron and black sesame. I added half a boiled egg for fifty cents extra, and it was a perfect soft googie rich with soy flavour. The broth is quick to form a skin, and is rich with collagen however the porkiness is lovely and subtle, balanced by the miso but the real winner here is the cha-su. Slices of the roast pork was was tender and melt-in-your-mouth sweet, literally falling apart when I tried to pick up a piece with my chopsticks.
Tsukimi Ramen $9.80
I originally wanted to add an egg to the tonkotsu, but the bloke suggested I instead try the tsukimi ramen, and I'm glad I went with it. Topped with bean sprouts and a soft-poached egg, the Kisaragi version is a close contender to Gumshara, the tonkotsu broth is lighter with a slightly milky consistency, and I suggest those to aren't big fans of the thickness of Gusmhara's broth to try this place.
