As readers of The Critical Crapper might soon discover, we love ramen.
So, how could we pass up an opportunity to sample Japanese ramen in Australia. Articles have been written about Nao’s great ramen noodle making and this is the first place Perth locals will recommend for delicious ramen offerrings.
We waited 10 minutes for our table on a Sunday afternoon. They took our orders, brought our drinks, and food at an excellent pace. The menu offers an interesting variety of ramen including the traditional egg noodles and the not-so-traditional spinach or red chili-infused noodles. The broth was a good balance and the noodles, well, they were ok … (If you’ve been to Ippudo in New York City for ramen (or Japan), you’ll be ruined for life). It was an enjoyable meal to share with friends. I was really impressed with their offering of “cold ramen”. Pretty tasty and very appropriate for the hot Australian weather. Way to adapt, Nao.
Here’s a weird thing about Nao’s, it’s closed on Saturdays! Whaaat?
Here’s another weird thing about Nao’s, they didn’t have bathrooms (which I’m told is common in Aus - Australian readers, yes?)!
In any case, I think this Critical Crapper verdict speaks for itself …
