How does Ippudo in its place of origin Hakata compare with what we get in Sydney?
Its just as popular with ques forming out side the stores at peak times, its also more on the expensive side compared to other ramen places. This particular store is more like a ramen bar there is table service but no individual tables only long counter benches. As for the ramen whilst its very hard to compare two dishes that are not side by side but I think its very similar to what we get in Sydney. One thing that was different is there is raw garlic and a crusher on every table but all in all its quite the same.
