This is such a belated blog/dedication to my love for Gumshara. I will admit it's not for everyone. Their thick broth (though customisable by request) is just too gravy like for some.... but for me.. it's a lil bowl of heaven. The reason for my latest revisit besides normally for their standard Tonkotsu Ramen, is the introduction of Back Fat on the menu. I obviously don't care enough about my heart or waistline, so I ordered their Level 2 Fatty. When it came out, it reminded of gruel orread more
Gumshara has a distinguish broth, the intense marrow flavours of the stock is said to bring out your beautiful skin will collagen. For most people may not like the intense marrow flavours so you can ask them to add a lighter broth to lessen the bold marrow flavours.
Gumshara was another lingerer on my #ToEatList, and the experience did not disappoint! I ordered the Super Mega Ramen ($25), which is basically ramen with the lot. The bowl consisted of ramen, egg, seaweed, thin pork slices, spare rib and BBQ pork skewer in a thick tonkotsu soup. The meat and soup were so tasty! I could not finish the huge serving, but staff provided takeaway containers. I'll most definitely return!
I used to rate this place No.1, but has recently been over-taken by another joint. But nevertheless, this place still ranks amongst the best in Sydney, if not, Asia Pacific. Thick porkish soup that makes your lips stick - this is how good this place is. Also I love the way they make it - each bowl is individually taste-tasted using disposable spoons. Just awesome!
