Best Known For
Chashu Don: signature grilled pork belly, served with special Chashu sauce, marinated egg, sliced spring onion, mayo and pickled red ginger.
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 karaage – Japanese style fried chicken, with fresh salad, mayo and lemon or perhaps soft tofu, served with cherry tomato and salad mix, dried bonito flakes and soy sesame dressing. For the main affair, try black ramen, with spicy seasoning, black shellfish-based powder, bok choy, spring onion, bean sprouts, marinated egg and signature grilled pork belly; best washed down by a cold Asahi beer.
