It came with the original tonkotsu soup base that could have perhaps been a bit richer, boy choy, bean sprout & marinated egg (that was slightly over cooked and not as flowy) and two pork belly. The fatty pork belly was grilled well and tender (although I personally prefer less fat meat). Overall, would still recommend #shujinko for a ramen fix! And they’re open 24hrs so it’s great for a late night treat as well

This is touted as the “best ramen in Melbourne” and I’m sorry to say that if this is the standard, you’re better off not eating ramen in Melbourne at all.

I found the tonkotsu broth lacking in depth, richness and flavor, and that’s ultimately why the bowl as a whole is a fail for me. The noodles were unmemorable and the marinated egg, overcooked. The most palatable bit was probably the charred slice of grilled pork belly.

I’m genuinely baffled by the 4.5 rating they have on Google, and I remember having to queue for quite some time to get a table. Save yourself the time and calories.
