The Ramen Diaries: Gumshara revisited

It’s now time for round two, the review of the best reviews.
For my second visit to Gumshara, I chose the straight Tonkotsu, passing over the black garlic.
I’ve included a review table for this round of reviews, so you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into at each establishment.

Broth: Thick, creamy, smooth, unctuous. It’s a broth for hardcore pork fans.

Price: $10.50, $1.50 to add the perfect egg. Black garlic version is $11.50 (plus $1.50 for egg!)

Noodles: Thick, chewy. Good at picking up broth.

Meat: Tasty, generous serve of chashu. Not cold.

Toppings: Chashu, bamboo shoots, spring onions. Optional: pickled garlic, pickled ginger, garlic flakes. Optional cost: Egg etc

Setting: Food Court – Eating World, Haymarket.

Overall recommendation: Gumshara does a mean tonkotsu. It’s highly recommended – not just by me, but by many others. It’s enjoyable but it’s not for the faint hearted. Be prepared for pork. Lots of pork.
