One sip of the umami-rich, steaming hot broth, a single mouthful of the stretchy noodles with just enough chew, a bite of the tender, flavoursome char siu pork is all one really needs to know that when it comes to ramen, this is food for the soul. It was this very reason that led the team at Hakataya Ramen on Lower Ground to bring one of Japan’s staple dishes to Brisbane.

Considered one of the most authentic bowls of ramen you’ll find in Queensland, Hakataya Ramen’s recipe holds steadfastly to tradition. Serving variations on the traditional Tonkatsu, or pork, broth, Hakataya select the best quality Australian pork bones for their soup which is simmered over a number of hours to extract as much flavour as possible. The amount of time and effort that goes into the broth is unsurprising when you taste it: it’s rich and flavoursome without being heavy or cloudy.

And it might also be as good for you as it tastes. Given how long the soup is simmered with the pork bones, it’s rich in collagen, which supports joint mobility and healthy hair, skin and nails.

Broth aside, Hakataya’s signature char siu pork is a star in and of itself, too. Marinated in soy and mirin, each bowl is topped with thick slices that lend the soup a robustness, making it the ultimate cool day comfort food. While you’re there, you may as well add kaedama, an extra helping of noodles, ajitama, a seasoned egg, or takana, spicy Japanese pickles. With a broth so delicious, it would be rude not to.

Visit Hakataya Ramen on Lower Ground everyday from 10am to 6pm.
