Ippudo Sydney

Ippudo Sydney

Located at the 5th level of Westfield Sydney, Ippudo Sydney boasts a long queue of hungry patrons from 6pm onwards.

Not only are there 30-40 seats inside, there are 8 seats at the bar located next to the main entrance.

The decor is definitely not Japanese. Cutlery and dinnerware line the walls while the ceiling were timber strips in a continuous wave design.

There are partial booth seats and communal dining. It was kinda nice as we could easily peer over and preview what other diners have ordered. So Singaporean! Haha!

Yi feng tang?

Ippudo Pork Bun – Steamed bun with braised pork and Ippudo original sauce.

Think Kong bak bao-styled Mos Burger’s  Teriyaki Chicken Burger but with tender pork instead. So yum! Best part? It’s ONLY $4!!

Avocado and tofu tartar – Tofu tartar and fresh avocado with creamy sesame sauce. $10.

It’s such a refreshing dish! It’s served on a bed of ice and should be eaten drenched with the accompanying sesame sauce. Goes to show that eating healthy doesn’t mean boring or bland!

Hot Stone Unagi Rice – Grilled Japanese eel on rice with original Kabayaki sauce.

The portion was kinda small for a main but it was definitely packed with enough flavour. Totally reminds me of bibimbap! Haha!

Very worth the $10 price tag.

Akamaru Shinaji – Ippudo original tonkatsu broth enhanced with special blended miso paste and fragrant garlic oil. Served with thin noodles, pork belly, black mushrooms and shallots. $16

This is definitely the best ramen I’ve tasted. Ajisen Ramen cannot even come close!

The noodles were nice and not overcooked and the broth was well-flavoured without being too sweet or too overpowering.

The Blue Mountains – Green tea ice cream with red beans, apricots, mandarins, whipped cream topped with silvers of peanuts. $13.

Even though we shared dessert between the both of us, I still feel that there was too much ice cream! I personally prefer my matcha ice cream sweeter and creamier.

Will I return? DEFINITELY!  I’ve already decided on trying a Wagyu beef dish at my next visit! 😀
