I love noodles! So does Hai. Once in a while we make instant noodles topped with eggs and eat it as a late night snack (We call it 'Noodle Time'). When we go out Hai likes to eat ramen at Japanese restaurants and I love Chinese Hot Pot. We have visited eaten many noodle dishes in our lives, but here are some of our favourite noodle joints:

1. Gumshara Ramen - Here they serve one of those most authentic ramen Hai has ever tasted outside of Japan. It sits in the middle of Chinatown's Eating World, a fluorescent lit food court that houses cheap but delicious Asian food.  After picking your ramen off a basic picture menu, you get your meal on a food tray and take it to the common area.
Often called the "Best Ramen in Sydney", it does not disappoint with the Tonkotsu broth rich and thick. I had the Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen Noodle with Soft Boiled Egg as an extra topping for only $14 total. I slurped it up greedily.

2. Musashi Ramen Bar - We visited Melbourne for a wedding last year, and we stumbled upon Musashi Ramen Bar in the CBD. Not initially looking for ramen to eat, we were drawn towards the crowds waiting in line and decided to join.
I ordered the Black "Tora" Garlic Ramen, and the broth came out jet black, much to my surprise (you don't see it often!). The soup was hearty, definitely not as thick as Gumshara but it was still delicious with a price tag of $13.90. Another great perk is that his place stays open until past midnight.

3. Yang Guo Fu Ma La Tang - This is place is pretty awesome. Tucked in an alleyway arcade in Burwood, Yang Guo Fu Ma La Tang is bascially a Noodle Buffet. At the front counter, there are buckets of fresh ingredients - vegetables, noodles, meats, fish balls, tofu, blood jelly and quail eggs.
To order, you grab a big clear bowl and start adding what you want to be included in your noodle bowl. Then you take it to the cashier to get a number tag, paying for the weight of your ingredients at $12 per 500g.  I ended up paying $17 for my bowl.
Once your number is called, the cashier asks what sauces you want in a rushed manner - chili? soy? sesame oil? peanuts? shallots? and then after that ordeal you get to take your bowl to the table.
And it's so delicious! I filled my bowl with slices of beef, fish balls, sweet potato slices, tofu, quail eggs, mushroom and two types of noodles - handmade and potato.
Tasting like my own Chinese Hot Pot, I gobbled it up leaving at least a quarter bowl left (I had ordered way too much).

If you're ever in Sydney or Melbourne these joints are part of my top picks for Asian food that won't break the bank.
I'm keen to compare the Ramen I've eaten in Australia to the ones I will eat in Japan (travelling January 2019). I know that Japan's level will blow my mind and it's possible that Japan will ruin noodles for me. But we shall see. Watch this space.
