Dosanko Larmen - Melbourne, Victoria

Shio Ramen Deluxe - Mild salt flavoured broth with butter, bamboo shoot, boiled eggs, spring onion, corn, pork belly slices 15.90

Miso Ramen Deluxe - Red miso flavoured broth with minced pork, boiled eggs, spring onion, corn, pork belly slices and noodle 16.90

Verdict? Set on the quieter end of Chinatown, the restaurant layout and decor reminded me of some of the simple, no-nonsense restaurants in Japan. But while the service was good, the ramen failed to impress - it was OK, but definitely not anything special. I found the broth a little weak, lacking any true depth of flavour, and the egg only just managed to scrape in on the right side of gooeyness. So unfortunately, I don't think we'll be revisiting anytime soon.
