Mugen Ramen

Mugen Ramen is a two storey Japanese ramen, tapas and bar hidden in the alley way. Melbournians are used to finding good places with delicious food in the alley ways, that's one of the thing that we are famous for.

The restaurant it self has limited seatings on the first floor but warm, cozy and a little bit spacier on the ground floor. I love their unique menu with cartoons at the back of it with the instructions of " How to eat Tsukemen". They have a good variety of menu filled with delicious ramen, small Japanese tapas and their famous dish is "tsukemen". Tsukemen is a dish where noodles and broth are served separately and  the noodle only dipped before eating it.





Gyouza ($15-8pcs). I love the juiciness of the gyoza so much, it was full of flavour and the skin was soft yet still a little bit crispy.



Tsukune - Japanese grilled chicken skewers made from tenderloin thigh and soft bones with Teriyaki sauce and egg yolk side to dip ($15-4pcs). This is one of my favourite dish at Mugen Ramen. The chicken was super juicy and tasty especially with the egg yolk. Super delicious.


Pipi Sake Mushi - marker fresh pipies braised with garlic, sake, butter and Mugen soy sauce garnished with fine chopped chives ($15). Well made pipies with subtle flavour but just enough flavour to make the pipies shine.


Goma Tsukemen - sesame soy broth, house made thick noodles served with slow cooked pork (chashu), bamboo shoots and seaweeds ($15). I love the textures of the noodles, it was slight chewy but firmed. The broth it self was super thick with punching saltiness and sour flavour mixed together. It was quite enjoyable at first but I would prefer to try their other broth next time. I would love to have some more of their pork, it was a melt in your mouth moment. They also served hot broth at the end to be mixed with the sesame broth and feel free to slurp the broth.




Matcha Creme Brulee  - creme brulee with Matcha from Kyoto, Japan served with hot green tea ($10). I love this dish just because it was creamy, not overly sweet and the matcha really shines. The hot green tea just the perfect end to the meal.


Their service was really polite, attentive, friendly and fast. Come early or prepare to wait cause they are generally busy. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and definitely will be back for more.
