Neko Neko

A dietary requirement-friendly ramen joint with vegan broth and gluten-free noodles.

The name translates to 'cat' in Japanese, but there's nothing aloof or fickle about Neko Neko. The Fitzroy ramen joint is dishing up solid doses of goodness that will love you and never leave you (and will let you love it, too).

A mostly vegan affair run by a Japanese vegan, Saori Kawasaki — and her husband Tomoya — Neko Neko has three vegan ramen offerings and one pescatarian. It could well be the most dietarily inclusive ramen joint in town.

It also offers up the holy grail (for you coeliacs out there) of gluten-free noodles. Go for the mapo tofu ramen ($20) and you'll not even be remembering the fact that its vegan — just that it's ultra tasty, and very pretty to look at, too, with brightly coloured garnishes.
