Yokozuna Ramen Experts, East Malvern by Obelix

Kiddo has an obsession with noodle soup.  In an attempt to diversify her from pho, pho and more pho, I took her to Yokozuna Ramen Experts for a Japanese version of a noodle soup.

It was a pretty decent quick lunch.  Kiddo ordered the Tonkotsu Ramen White ($12) which came with egg, slices of tender pork and a pork and soy based soup.  It is a lot cheaper than Hakata Gensuke but the Yokozuna broth is less complex/intense.  So if you like a lighter and less intense broth, then Yokozuna is probably more up your alley.

I could not go pass anything involving black sesame.  Therefore I had to order the black sesame and chicken soup with soy based ramen and chilli oil topped with karaage chicken ($17).  It was a generous serve and the broth and ramen were both flavoursome.  I was a bit saddened that the crunchy karaage were no longer crunchy as they were served in the broth.  Would have been nice to have those on a separate plate.

Kiddo washed her noodles down with a glass of freshly squeezed OJ ($3).

Verdict:  We liked it.

Yokozuma Ramen Experts were a pretty decent noodle feed.  The service was quick and friendly.  The price reasonable.  It is conveniently located within Chadstone Shopping Centre and is a good alternative to food court fare.
