They’ve reconfigured the tables at Dosukoi Japanese Noodle Bar in Allendale Square, Perth CBD so more people can fit into the tiny space. Every day that I walk by at lunch time (they’re open Monday to Friday), the place is packed. Looking at the crowd hunched over their bowls with not a spare chair last week on Thursday, I didn’t hesitate to order my lunch takeaway: No.6, fried chicken on top. I was the third in line to order and four bowls of ramen came out of the kitchen before mine, but I received my order in around 10 minutes. Pretty reasonable for the rush hour.
Yeah, it’s silly to take something deep-fried and crispy and soggify it with soup, but boy, it was good. After sucking up the soft noodles and destroying all the flotsam, I lifted the bowl to my lips and drank up the tasty broth.
As I slurped up my No.6, I hatched a plan for my next bowl, which will be No.4, soft pork on top. Do you think about your next meal while you’re eating the current one?
