Are you in Auckland? Are you extremely hungry? Do you love asian food? Well, I have the perfect place for you, my friend.
In no way is this post endorsed, I just straight up love this place.
Have you ever heard of Ramen Takara? It’s a Ramen house situated in Brown’s Bay, and Ponsonby (in Auckland)
where they create the most amazing ramen you could ever lay your eyes upon.
Yesterday, (Jan 12th) I went of the island to grab myself a couple more sketchbooks. Mmmm that feeling
of a fresh, smooth book to start drawing in…
ANYWAY. I dragged my sister with me, which I was grateful to have my little monkey by my side.
We have previously been to the ramen house in Brown’s Bay, and decided to grab dinner at the Ponsonby one
since it was closer. And, I’M SO GLAD WE DID. They never fail to impress me.
Luckily, we arrived at happy hour. How cute is that? So, naturally, the cocktails were all one price. And, from the Brown’s Bay
ramen, we knew the perfect one to try. The Sakura Cocktail. It’s a pretty lethal drink, but delicious nonetheless! This is the bar
(Ponsonby), which is so incredibly cute! It was about 1/3 of the size of the Brown’s Bay one, but that’s why I love it so much.
Small, cute, quiet, and calming music playing. And just to add, the service was incredible.
Very attentive waiter, who made our cocktails really delicious is gorgeously presented.
It’s making me hungry all over again seeing these photos!
I purchased the Tonkotsu, for $14. Swapped the bok choy for bean sprouts, and oh dear lordy. It was divine.
Finished it off for breakfast this morning, since I filled myself up on an entrée of pork gyoza and edamame beans.
Mmmmm seriously. Ita daki mas (that’s like, yo, dis foods good, let’s dig in) but in a more respectful way.
If you ever get the chance to eat at either of these restaurants, give them a positive review on Facebook and all that.
Looking forward to seeing what some of you order!
