If you're into noodle soup, you have to try Kung Fu Ramen, this place is something special. [CLOSED - Now Chinese Noodle Bar - there's another Kung Fu Ramen around the corner at - see post here]
Kung Fu's main drawcard is handmade noodles, made fresh to order.
These are Lan Zhou style noodles, made fresh to order completely by hand, not even a knife is used. This bloke on youtube demonstrates the amazing technique...
Kung Fu Ramen - $10. This the classic Lan Zhou Beef Noodle Soup, famous all over China. These noodles are pulled by hand right in front of your eyes, and put in a light broth, with slices of corned beef and a googie. The broth is so light and magically cleansing, this is Shawn's favourite detox soup.
Special Stewed Beef Ramen ($13.80). The stock in this soup has a stronger flavour, heavier with star anise and fennel and spices. The beef is cubes of pre-cooked beef, slightly shredded. And the noodles are thick like linguine, fresh and insanely good. Highly recommended.
Alison needs a fresh veggie fix and a cucumber salad usually does the trick. $6 for a plate of slightly smashed cucumber and capsicum in a light sesame oil.
Chicken wing on a skewer, sprinkled with chili and a good side instead of a beef skewer. ($4). The lamb skewers are very popular but we try some chook for a change, nice but the lamb is the winner.
Kung Fu Ramen is at 800 George Street, down towards Central on the backpacker side of the street. Get there before it changes it's name again.
There's another branch around the corner on Thomas Street\Ultimo Road (see post here), we think the George Street branch has a much better atmosphere.
