Fukuryu Ramen (CBD) and Straits Kitchen (Mt.Waverley), MELB

Sydney holds some of my fondest ramen memories and out of fear of disappointment, I steered clear of any ramen-like shop. Instant noodles do satisfy me most of the time but there are moments where it just doesn't hit the right spot.

And so, a quick web surfing session followed by hopping into the train to CBD and voila, we have ramen. Prices at Fukuryu Ramen are reasonable and service is quick. Place your order at the counter, pay for your meal, take a seat and after about 8 minutes, you will be fed.

Both bowls of ramen were unique in their own way and I like how the noodles were not soggy but rather, al dente. Feel free to add a dash of pepper to spice things up if you must.

Why not finish off your meal with their green tea ice cream that is topped with green tea flavoured whipped cream? Not overly sweet and still had good hints of green tea flavour in it.

Now back to my list of Malaysian food in Melbourne. As always, plenty to choose from and each of them have their own signature dishes that is difficult to source elsewhere. The interior exudes a posh feel but do not let this alarm you as the prices here are decent.

I was taken aback when I first entered this place: walked into a large sized alcohol bar, marble table, excellent customer service..not your usual Malaysian restaurant, that's for sure.

Combination yee mee ~ generous portion for $11.80.

Wat dan hor ~ was strangely craving this dish and satisfied I was. Prawns were peeled, generous amount of vegetables added and best of all, it goes well with pickled chilli:)
