Yasaka Ramen is a cosy little restaurant in Neutral Bay on the main strip of military road. QHL talks of his travels and adventures. I am jealous as he speaks of all the fun stuff he's been doing. He orders an iced green tea latte as he's all about the matcha these days.
I order the Black Garlic Ramen ($17). The broth is a squid ink and pork bone soup which has a tangy black colour. The additional garlic enhances this ramen. I add in some corn as I like the sweetness in ramen. The broth is medium in body, not too thick like Gumshara where they have loads of fat in the broth. The pork slices are tender and noodles flavoursome from the broth. It's a big portion of ramen and I end up giving the rest of my ramen to QHL.
QHL orders the grilled chashu ramen and is pretty hungry so he also orders a side of curry don. His ramen is quite tasty and a bit lighter than mine. QHL pretty demolishes the curry rice bowl, his ramen and my left over ramen. I'm pretty impressed.
