Best Known For
Hiyashi Tantanmen: special, nutritious cold ramen with peanut and sesame based soup, fresh vegetable, marinated egg, minced pork and jumbo shrimp.
For steaming bowls of ramen Tokyo-style, Melburnians seek out the glowing red and yellow sign of Shujinko on Elizabeth Street. This inner urban restaurant exudes a traditional vibe with diners cosying up side-by-side with friends in intimate surrounds, to drown out cold days with classic Japanese inspired soups and gyoza dumplings, all freshly made in house. Tuck into street food starters like takoyaki – authentic octopus balls topped with tuna flakes, or perhaps fresh tofu and tomato with a green salad; before a main of special pan fried yaki ramen noodles, topped with grilled pork belly and mixed seafood marinara, in a pork-based broth. Don’t forget to order sides of crispy pan fried housemade pork dumplings, edamame green beans and seaweed salad, washed down by a cold Asahi beer.
