Piping hot noods at Canberra's newest food precinct, Verity Lane Market.

Verity Lane Market is the freshest foodie destination — and home to the hub of hot noods, Ramen Daddy. The slick digs, with its soaring ceiling and floodlights, is a far cry from the classic hole-in-the-wall ramen joint you may be used to.

This is ramen with a difference. Here, The Boat House chefs John Leverink and Eddy Tsai fuse their love of Japanese and French food into the signature Tori Paitan creamy chicken broth — luscious like all the best French dishes but unquestionably Japanese with precision-engineered noodles.

Spice-seekers can hit the Dan Dan ramen instead, which adds a generous dash of house-made chilli oil, field mushroom xo, chilli soybean shoots and toasted sesame paste to chicken broth. And vegos won't go hungry with plant-based ramen and rice bowl options. Just after a small snack? Grab a chicken katsu sando or fries with 'ramen gravy'.

Dining is currently outdoor only, so you'll be slurping up your ramen in the fresh air.
