Ryo's, Crows Nest

Wowzer! You'd think that there was a wild nightclub where Ryo's is located with the long queues! Actually, it's just a well known ramen joint in Crows Nest and quite well known in Sydney overall by foodies.  Its presence is known mostly by reputation as it's tucked away from the main strip of eateries in Crows Nest.

Patience does pay off

Spicy Pork Ramen
If you like lots of flavours then I highly recommend the spicy ramen ($13.50, above).  It's bang packed full of pork and spicy flavours and has sliced roast pork pieces for your pleasure. The pork soaks up the flavours of spice which is nice.

For a more subtle sensation, I picked the number 1 ordered ramen (below, $12.00).  It's a milder broth which is pork based with salt. It's also topped with egg, spring onion and shoots. The noodles are thin but still soak up the flavours. Both the Spicy Ramen and the Ramen in Salt are decent portions.

The Miso Pork Ramen is another more subtle pork based noodle dish. I would recommend both dishes but my favourite is the spicy ramen.

However if you are in a group, when you come to Ryo's you must order their famous ramen and on top of this you MUST order the delicious and mind blowing karaage chicken (below, $8). It's perfection because it's fried chicken that is just perfect in crispyness and the meat is very tender.

Overall, a high value ramen restaurant if you have the patience to wait.  They can sit about 20 people inside and the food comes very quickly. I like the decore inside, it's a bit quirky with their signs.

Add it to your ramen favourites like Ramen Zundo (which I blogged about) in World Square, CBD Sydney.

Mains: $10.5-14.5
