Ramen Danbo is one of Japan’s largest ramen-bar chains, and has opened its first Australian venue at Mercato on Ferry in Southport. Here you’ll find authentic ramen, prepared with intricate traditional methods. Let it be known that the team take this ramen game very seriously. How so? Well, you can’t order takeaway bowls, because, well, ramen should be eaten quickly – right then and there. It’s at its best when its fresh, and they don’t want their well-crafted ramen bowls to be consumed in any other way. Total respect. There are also a handful of sides, like fresh-made gyoza and pork donburi, though, it’s well and truly all about the ramen here.
