Gumshara - Haymarket


I had done my research and read up of many food blogs (such as Grab Your Fork, Simon Food Favourites, and Chocolate Suze), I felt ready to tackle this supposedly awesome ramen shop.
With super super super thick collagenic soup it is made the "traditional Japanese way", using 120kg of pork bone a day and with NO MSG~ Also advertised was how good collagen is for skin - not that it'll do you any good if you die of a heart attack from the fatty glugginess. :P

Tucked away in a food court in the heart of the city, I had a bit of trouble convincing my partner that this ramen soup would be excellent and as good (if not better than) Ryo's. In fact, being a lazy Saturday lunch time, not seeing any crowds surrounding this little ramen shop, and only two people working in the shop made my heart skip a beat. What if it wasn't as good as it's talked up to be??? I was quickly reassured by the shop assistant's fluent Japanese and the fluent Japanese of the customers before me. The shop had to be good if Jap people own it and if Jap people go to it... rite?

But what better than first-hand experience? I opted for the garlic tonkotsu noodle ($9.50) with an egg ($1.50) whilst my partner got the pork spare rib noodle ($13) with an egg. Only 10 Spare Rib noodles are made in a day - so partner considered himself lucky.

Seasoned Garlic

Garlic Tonkotsu Noodle - $9.50

Pork Spare Rib Noodle - $13

My first gallop of noodles bought a smile to my face. The soup was thick and flavoursome, with the garlicy flavour infused throughout. The soft-boiled season egg was cooked just right. The egg yolk runny (but not too runny) and very tasty. Mmm... My partner's pork spare rib also did not dissappoint. He got a HUGE chunk of meat - tasted as though grilled on a wire rack (and probably was) - and was tender, meaty, and with fat encased throughout. Mmm... My partner slurped down his noodle and his soup and attacked the meat until it was all gone. No exception from me.

With each spoonful, I could feel the collageny fatness stick down my throat. Amazingly, however, my mouth didn't get that usual thirst ick feeling I normally do when I'm attacked by MSG. So the soup, although superbly flavoursome and thick and all the rest of it, probably really doesn't have MSG~ figure that!

All in all, Gumshara is awesome! Because of the thickness of the soup, my partner and I were not hungry for a long long long time - we barely needed any dinner! Would I be back? DEFINATELY! Would I have it everyday? Only if I really wanted a heart attack :)

Food - 9/10

Overall - 31/40
