The Verdict

When Kevin Pak opened Melbourne's first, Tokyo-inspired 24-hour ramen joint in 2015, Melbourne slurped it up. Menya Sandaime may have recently rebranded as Shujinko, but the choice of four classic ramen broths and a range of oozy, deep-fried sides remain. The Black Ramen (which is coincidentally, not that black) is a soul-warming mix of rich tonkotsu and shellfish soup. Pair it with extra lashings of fatty, smoked chasyu (pork) and oh-my-god-good gyoza. But choose your visiting times wisely soup slurpers, there's less than 40 seats in this popular Japanese-styled eatery.
