Shop Ramen is a little bit different from usual ramen bar in Melbourne, it's a go to cool hipster joint. They are located in Fitzroy and they do served loads of vegetarian/vegan options as well as they caterfor most food intolerances.

It's hard to admit but at that point of time I run out of ramen place to try so I google the best ramen in Melbourne then I realise I have tried most of all. One place that keeps popping out in my Instagram yet never had time to visit is Shop Ramen. The restaurant is small with large communal table and a few tables along the walls. It's simple but has a rustic charm to it.

Pork Belly Bun - pickled cucumber, spring onion and bulldog sauce ($4.5). The bun was beautifully made with a thick slice of juicy pork belly and honestly it's good.

Pork Belly - shoyu soup, king oyster mushrooms, spring onion, marinated egg, watercress ($16). The portions was pretty small for the price with only two piece of pork and an egg. Even though the pork was soft but for me it lacked of dept and umami flavour. I get it they are trying to be different and trying to modern it up but it's not working for me.

Overall, the service was fast but not as friendly and attentive as I expected it to be. I honestly think I'm not cut for modern kind of ramen. I love my traditional ramen, it's a nice try but once it's enough for me.
