Mugen Ramen is something a little different to the quick in-and-out hustly bustly ramen restaurants that line the CBD streets. This one, in true Melbourne style, is down an alley just off Flinders Lane and has a basement vibe (you'll likely be sitting downstairs).

There's also a punchy, pop-culture feel to the décor — menus handed over to customers look like comic books and Japanese films project silently onto the walls. Come for the tsukemen ramen ($17 for a regular size), where the noodles and broth are served separately before you lovingly combine them — by dipping the former into the latter.

Two become one; you become full. But, a word of warning, this ramen is dangerous for those who wear white.

As well as ramen, Mugen serves up a range of snacks and a heap of craft beers — mostly from local or Japanese microbreweries.
