Ippudo Tao

Ippudo Tao is the result of a collaboration between Ippudo and Tao, a Japanese drum group. Having been to Ippudo at Mandarin Gallery a couple of times, I was pretty excited to see what Ippudo Tao has to offer. 

X and I went there for dinner around 10 pm on a Friday night and we parked at UE Square. Parking charges were pretty killer I'd suggest that you park along the road if you can!

With basic colours of red and black covering the entire shop space and front, this outlet looks significantly different from the one at Mandarin Gallery. Pretty unique but it was a little too dark for me.

Ippudo Pork bun! $3
I love it! The braised pork is so soft it melts in your mouth!

This is quite a bad picture I don't know why I didn't take a picture of the meat but of the veg instead haha

This dish is part of the Ippudo Tao original ramen menu and it's unique to this outlet.
The noodles are thick and chewy and are supposed to symbolise the dynamism of Tao.
I didn't like the noodles that much though. They were a little too tough but the soup was pretty tasty!

This is the original ramen which Ippudo is famous for!
However, X felt that the broth wasn't as tasty as the Tao Kuro's

Ooooohhh look at that
I was a little disappointed though, as the egg yolk wasn't as runny as I'd expected it to be.

X and I love ajitamago, we each have 2 whenever we eat ramen! Haha greedy pigs.

It was a pretty good meal. The ramen took about 15 minutes to be served while the pork bun came shortly after we placed our orders. Service was quite good and they don't charge for their wet towels. Even though they're famous for their ramen, I felt that the pork bun was the highlight. We spent about $55 in total. A little steep but not too bad.

Check out Ippudo Tao if you're looking for ramen in an outdoor or more chill-out setting!
