I must say Zensaki's noodles are definately the best. It's authentic ramen noodles, not the substitute, almost egg noodle like one that is done at Arigataya. Not only are the noodles GREAT (even with in the traditional cold soba style - which they have this delicious sauce through it) but they also offer three types of broth, shoyu (soy - which is my favourite), shio (salt), and miso (which according to my cousin is a little bitter?.. i had a taste i didn't think so, but it does taste a little strange, probably due to the miso particles through it!).
They also have a range of toppings available:
- Your choice of Chashu, Katsu Chicken, Tori Karaage, Sliced Beef, Tofu
- Your choice of Cheese, Wakame, Beansprouts, Butter, Corn, Chilli, Nori
The number of ‘add-ons’ is totally up to the customer and what they would prefer to go with the Ramen this seemed to be very in tune with what was happening in Tokyo!
And I guess if you can't choose, like me, you can always have the works and have everything thrown in. And because I love a little bit of zang to my meal I ask for extra chilli.
For approximately $8.50-$15 for noodles (or a set menu with noodles, salad - japanese style, miso soup and fried chicken that's around $18) that never seem to end with a broth and noodles that make me feel like I am in Japan. Zensaki is definately the best Ramen noodle house in Perth, beating Arigataya by a long stretch.

OH I forgot to mention, they also provide cold soba noodles (which I've sort of mentioned and are really delish and light and perfect meal for hot summers!) , as well as sushi, gyozas, takoyaki, rice dishes like katsu don, donburi, teriyaki, katsu curries etc. for those who want something more than just noodles. But really, I recommend you try the noodles, they are the best in TOWN. REALLY AUTHENTIC.
Got to just love it that Perth has places like with authenticity!
