It’s that time of year again, when the temperature suddenly plummets, the barbeque is packed away, and all you want is to be warmed from the inside out with a giant bowl of hot, noodle-filled broth. Luckily Auckland is home to many fantastic ramen restaurants ready to get you through the colder months. No, we’re not talking about the dirt-cheap, two-minute microwavable version that you smashed during your uni days.
Proper ramen is a soul-warming dish that combines Japanese noodles in a slowly simmered broth that originates from China. Almost every prefecture in Japan has its own variation of ramen, using different broth styles and served with an assortment of toppings — from chashu pork to wood ear fungus, bamboo shoots and molten boiled egg.
Whatever your preference, it’s mostly about the experience of slurping and the warm feeling that resonates inside after every mouthful. Here you’ll find some of the best places to slurp up a bowl of ramen across the city as we head into the winter months.
