Ippudo Sydney, Westfield

Ippudo Sydney opened for business this week to a melody of “Irrashaimase” greetings on arrival and the beat of Taiko drummers. The international ramen franchise was founded by Shigemi Kawahara, the CEO of Chikaranomoto Company in 1985 who attended the launch of Australian’s first Ippudo located on Level 5 of Westfield Sydney.

Adam Liaw hosted the event, addressing guests in both Japanese and English before Taiko drummers made their entrance and took to the stage for a spectacular performance. A sake barrel was broken for health and prosperity before guests sat down for delicious bowls of ramen and other dishes from the menu.

Ippudo’s Akamaru Shinjai is a 25-year old recipe that combines the flavours of a secret miso, garlic oil, slices of pork, black mushrooms, soyben sprouts, shallots and silky noodles in a fragrant broth. For a little more heat, try Karaka Men with Hakata-style wavy noodles with pork belly and a spicy miso. The noodles can be ordered to taste, from harigane (firmest), barikata (extra-firm), katame (firm), futsuu (regular) to yawarakame (soft).

Much like their divine pork buns, your first visit to Ippudo can easily develop into a ramen habit.
