Once upon a time, Sydney was raving about the ramen burger. Now, we’ve gone all purist and like our ramen and burgers in separate dishes, please and thank you. Oh, and by the beach, if you don’t mind.
Blanca Bar in Bondi has opened a next-door pop-up, Ramen X Burgers. Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, chef Samuel Cole has devised a short and sweet menu of noodly and burger-y concoctions. Ramen fans can choose from a broth of shoyu (soy), spicy chicken, or miso-pork, and choose their topping of roasted pork belly, seafood, crispy chicken or roasted mushrooms. Burger-wise, we’re hedging our bets on the salt and pepper soft shell crab with kohlrabi and red cabbage pickle.
No word on how long the pop-up will stick around, but if you’re keen for carbs to warm you up in winter, they’re opening this week for all your ramen and burg needs.
