Still searching for good ramen in Melbourne. The ramen at Momotaro wasn’t bad; the noodles were pleasantly springy, and the chashu was well-flavoured, if lacking a little on the fat, but the tonkotsu soup was rather a let down. When compared to that of Ichiban Boshi (in Sydney), Momotaro’s tonkostu seemed thin, lacking the gelatinous goodness of pork bones having been boiled for hours until the cartilage had melted into the stiock, and seemed instead to have been merely a pork stock lightly thickened and coloured by adding milk. My lactose intolerance response doesn’t back me up in this theory, but nonetheless that’s what it tasted like.

The hunt continues… next up, Ramen ya.

  1. WTF?! This is one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne and I haven't had the tonkotsu?!?! Is it on the menu?
