The Glen has just opened up their new dining precinct and that means more restaurants are popping up. One of those restaurants is Shujinko. Yes, there are plenty of those around Melbourne and finally, the south east finally has theirs. It’s very cosy and there’s not a lot of seatings available so it’s first in best dressed.
Those who haven’t checked out ramune, definitely hit it up for refreshing Japanese lemonade.
Ramune – $4.50
The combi croquette filled with a potato that’s so smooth and crunchy and crispy on the outside. Dip it in the curry dip and BAM he’s your man.
Combi-Croquette – $14.50
Deep fried breaded potato cakes with vegetables and curry
Mr D got the Kurakuchi ramen where it’s the signature Shujinko ramen but SPICY! Yes the broth was smooth, yes it was spicy AND yes, it was oh so delish!
Kurakuchi Ramen – $14.80
Shujinko Ramen with spicy seasoning. Served with bok choy, spring onion, bean sprout, marinated egg and signature pork belly
I absolutely LOVE tsukemen or also known as dipping noodles. The noods were bouncy and the broth had the right amount of flavours. The broth needed to be a touch thicker to make it perfect.
Tsukemen – $15.50
Japanese dipping noodles with a special broth containing chopped pork belly, separately.
Shujinko never disappoint and the new venue at The Glen is spot on. It does get super busy on the weekend so be prepared to line up. Great ramen for a decent price, we’ll defs be back if we’re out and about a The Glen.
