Posted February 09, 2020 06:23:30Australia’s most popular ramen bar has opened up in a new shopping centre, with owners claiming to have driven up traffic to their premises.
The ramen chain, founded by three former Olympic cyclists, is located in Melbourne’s inner-west and offers ramen noodles in a cafe, with an emphasis on organic ingredients.
Owner David O’Keefe said customers were surprised by the speed of their entrance.
“People were coming in from as far as the west of the city and they were driving by with their kids,” he said.
“Theres people running around in wheelchairs.
People were just literally running past us with their children.”
David O’Keefe said people were amazed by the speeds of their entry.
“They were just freaking out when they walked in, it was just incredible,” he explained.
“We’re hoping to get more people to come in.”
David says the cafe is a first for his business and he hopes to open more places in the future.
“It’s been a dream for me to open my own ramen shop in a town in Sydney,” he continued.
“A lot of people have asked for ramen and we are happy to oblige.”
Mr O’Deaigh said he hopes people will become more familiar with ramen as more places open.
“I think that ramen is a great food that can be enjoyed with a cup of tea and that it can be done at a reasonable price,” he stated.
“My hope is that ramens become a more mainstream food.”
