We find ourselves at Ichiban Boshi on Christmas Eve, a detour from last minute xmas shopping to fill up our stomachs. There wasn't much of a crowd compared to how busy they normally are which is a nice change.
H got his favourites Hiyashi Chuka; which is indeed refreshing and light. However these are only on the menu during summer months so get down there soon if you love cold noodles.
Every time we are here I get the tokyo ramen but this time I got the Unagi-ju instead. I am very fussy when it comes to unagi as I don't like it overly marinated, whereby they smother the eel in sauce and all you taste is the marinate, which is quite common in many restaurants / eateries in Sydney. Ichiban Boshi does not disappoint however, my first time ordering this dish and I loveee it. The eel was tender, juicy and delicately marinated. The dish also comes with a bowl of miso soup, a tiny saucer of pickles and a saucer of mash potatoes.
