Ryo's Noodles - slurp!

Ryo's Noodles - 80 Gouger Street, Adelaide SA 5000

OTCB was kindly invited to Ryo's Noodles. All items were provided free of charge on behalf of Ryo's Noodles. I (Amanda) had dined at Ryo's when it first opened, so I was looking forward to returning on this occasion to try some more tasty dishes. Ryo's is situated in the buzzing restaurant precinct of Gouger Street. It is a small noodle shop that makes good use of the space with standard tables lined along both sides and a high long communal table in the middle with bar stools. Tonight Ryo's is buzzing with fellow food loving foodies including McFuzzlebutt's Manchen, Adelaide Food Central, Willunga Wino, Dbites and Foodie Ling, amongst others.

Karaage $8.00
Myself and Mirko decide to start with trying a piece of the 'Fried Chicken' (Karaage) which Adelaide Food Central ordered and kindly shared with us. The chicken was full of flavour with a crunchy skin encasing a tender piece of chicken. I could have easily eaten the chicken without the kewpie mayonnaise on the side. In fact I would have preferred a more spicy type sauce for dipping but that is just my personal preference.

Ramen in soy sauce flavoured soup with stir fried vegetables, pork slices & naruto $15.00
For main I ordered the ramen in soy sauce flavoured soup with stir fried vegetables, pork slices and naruto. I enjoyed this ramen, the broth was not too salty, the pork slices were tender and the noodles were cooked well. The stir fried vegetables consisted of chinese cabbage only so I was expecting a variety of vegetables but there was enough flavour and texture throughout the ramen for me not to be be concerned with this minor detail.

Ramen in Tokyo style soy sauce soup with roast pork, bamboo shoots & naruto $14.50
For main Mirko ordered the ramen in Tokyo style soy sauce soup with roast pork, bamboo shoots and naruto. The flavour of this broth was nice but was towards the saltier side but not impacting the overall broth flavour.  Salt has been an issue with Ryo's in the past. There are even signs which say if the ramen its too salty, let them know so they can adjust the broth. The pork was tender and overall a decent dish.

Gyoza $7.00
Mirko and I ordered the Gyoza (Fried Dumplings) to share. Overall these dumplings dipped in soy sauce were tasty little parcels of pork mince encased in a delicate dough. The bottom of the dumplings were nice and crispy but maybe slightly overcooked as the other side of the dough was so soft it had broken through to reveal the filling.

Kimchi
Mirko & I also ordered the Kimchi (Spicy Pickles) to share except I pretty much devoured this myself!  If you are not aware, I am addicted to pickles and Korean style pickles are no exception.  This dish had great heat and sourness producing a wonderful crunch with the cabbage.

Vegetarian/Vegan Friendly: The menu has a couple of vegetarian options and one good looking vegetarian ramen.
Child Friendly: Definitely!

Mirko and I enjoyed our dinner here and I would definitely return for a quick, simple and tasty dinner. I definitely look forward to enjoying another delicious warming bowl of ramen in the cold winter months that are fast approaching!
