Delight in Vegan Ramen at One of Brisbane’s Favourite Japanese Restaurants

Are you a fan of the Tonkotsu ramen at Taro’s Ramen in Ascot? Would you like an equally flavourful, vegan version?

If you’re hungry for a hearty bowl of vegetable-based ramen, then Taro’s Ramen’s vegan version should satisfy your craving.

Taro’s vegan ramen is a lighter and creamier version of their best-selling Tonkotsu ramen, that rich broth made from Bangalow sweet pork bone cooked for two days.

Although vegan ramen is not offered at their Ascot location, you can take a 6-km ride to their location along Queen St in CBD to savour their rich broth.

Taro’s vegan ramen was first offered in their Edward St location, but it had to close to pursue the development plans for the building, with Chef Taro Akimoto taking to Facebook the closure of the shop.

“The Vegan Ramen venture has been a fun and interesting journey and we may revisit this brand at a later date,” Chef Akimoto wrote in a Facebook post.

The ‘noodle master’ launched vegan ramen with hopes of bringing something new to the Brisbane food scene just like when he opened his first shop.

In addition to plant-based broth, Taro offers house-fermented, gluten-free, and vegan kimchi and the triple decker dorayaki or pancakes made with soy and rice flour.

Taro currently has four locations across Brisbane and one is at 145 Racecourse Rd in Ascot. The Ascot kitchen will still continue with its usual menu, offering a range of Japanese dishes for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
