This fiery new Japanese ramen spot is where you are going to want to spend your chilly nights. It is a definite must-visits for noodle fanatics and the menu details all the individual noodle characteristics of each bowl.
Gogyo’s secret weapon is their kogashi (or “burned”) ramen. Each bowl is filled with a couple of ladlefuls of lard, heated up in a wok and then ignited. The charred residue is then tipped over the noodles, giving the thick soup (seasoned with either shoyu or miso) and a deep black hue and a rich, smoky flavor.
If you are in the Surry Hills area and lover of noodle dishes, Gogyo is one restaurant that will keep you coming back for more.
