Neko Neko

Everyone ramen calm! Vegan ramen is here and its tastier than ever!

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 — Neko Neko has three vegan ramen offerings and one pescatarian. It could well be the most dietarily inclusive ramen joint in Melbourne.

It also offers up the holy grail (for you coeliacs out there) of gluten-free noodles. Go for the mapo tofu ramen 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.

If you find yourself in Sydney keep an eye open for their Newtown restaurant, with an equally diverse menu and super chill atmosphere.
