Brisbane Devoured: Ajisen Ramen Brisbane

Ajisen Ramen Brisbane

Ajisen Ramen Brisbane on Urbanspoon

Wow our first post.... amazing. It took us about 3 days of brainstorming to actually come up with the name of our blog, however I think our first review won’t take that long to write at all!
Ajisen Ramen is one of our new favourite places to eat lunch when we venture into the city. It is a Japanese based chain with stores in China, Japan, the U.S. and all over South East Asia. Stores in Australia are located in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane of course. 

According to their website, there are many different types of ramen soup bases. Ajisen Ramen’s specialty is the tonkatsu or pork soup base.
Ajisen does have numerous other Japanese dishes including Bento boxes, rice dishes, all sorts of side dishes including gyoza, karaage and edamame, however we believe if you are going to visit, you definitely should try their ramen. Some of the side dishes or appetisers that they offer look fairly dodgy to me anyway, like frozen type spring rolls, calamari etc.

They have about 20 different types of ramen on their menu. They all generally come with half a boiled egg, cabbage, weird mushrooms (I am not a mushroom fan at all unfortunately), and spring onions.
On this occasion, L got the Gyoza ramen with a side of volcano sauce (their very hot chilli sauce), whilst I got the Tonkatsu ramen, which is basically the ramen with a crumbed pork fillet on top.

L was a little disappointed as previously he had had the actual Volcano ramen, which comes with their standard thin sliced pork belly with volcano sauce, and had felt that he’d received more sauce on this previous occasion, however I did remind him that he had ordered the sauce as a side this time. He thought the gyoza (dumplings) were quite tasty.
I found my tonkatsu ramen delicious as always. The soup base seemed much more creamy and flavoursome on this occasion.
Ajisen Ramen is located on George St in the city, is fairly cheaply priced (although with L’s ramen and the side of volcano sauce, his dish totalled $17, so if you want extras in your ramen it would probably not end up being cheap) and service there is friendly. They have a wide selection of beverages and are licenced as well. They have a dessert menu however we haven’t tried any desserts there so can’t comment.
