[adsensea]This is not the ramen we wanted to try… Initially, we were planning to get former Blancharu’s head chef’s ramen in Sussex street’s food court… but on that Saturday, at 2pm, the ramen were already sold out :’(
And so we headed to Gumshara ramen… Annie at the Random Foodie had mentioned these ramen when we met at Ippudo’s blogger dinner, and I realized everyone knew about them… but us.
Monsieur went for the Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen noodles at 11.5 AUD and it was OK. Both of us thought the pork belly was better than the one we had elsewhere mostly because of the thinner cut… but I found the broth to be flavourless and lacking of salt… Bit disappointed considering how well it was rated on urbanspoon.
I too, wanted to order Garlic Tonkotsu… but Monsieur made a point we order something different in many accounts, and this rule is only natural when one blogs about food… The thing is, now that we’ve know for each other this long… Monsieur knows how to order like a real foodie… and so it is rare we want something different. I guess it’s how it is when you’ve met your soulmate!
So here I am… furious I taught him so much about food… and finding myself ordering tomato tonkotsu ramen noodle… I’ve topped it with flavoured eggs (AUD 1.5) but to be honest, I don’t taste any of the extra flavour – other than egg itself – when eating it… And neither does Monsieur…
“Mon amour, is it supposed to taste any different than normal egg” he asks
“Well… It does not”
Overall, we’re both disappointed in Gumshara. Also it expressly mentions that no MSGs are used, we were very thirsty afterwards…
