Ramen and more on menu at Ippudo
Another ramen bar has opened in Perth. Ramen King Shigemi Kawahara’s global ramen brand has arrived at Kings Square offering ramen and more.
Kawahara opened his first store in 1985 in Japan’s ramen capital, Hakata, in the Fukuoka prefecture.
In 1990 he entered the Hall of Fame for winning Japanese ramen TV competition, Ramen Master Chef Championships three consecutive times.
Four years later, Kawahara opened another store in the Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum which increased the popularity of tonkotsu (pork broth) ramen and helped created a new ramen culture.
Kawahara gained the title Ramen King in 2005 after coming in first in World’s Greatest Ramen King Finals on TBS.
Now, Ippudo has 217 stores in 13 countries.
Ippudo Kings Square seats 90 people and offers classic ramen dishes as well as hot and cold dishes, salads, sides, signature dishes, rice and desserts.
