Japanese noodle giant breezes in

IPPUDO was already a big name in the Japanese noodle scene before it opened a branch in New York City and earned a reputation as Hollywood stars queued for a seat. Now IPPUDO (pictured) is headed to Australia, with a restaurant opening next month at Westfield Sydney. Designer Koichi Takada, who won awards for Cave restaurant in Maroubra and is now working on Jennifer Hawkins' Curl Curl pad, will craft IPPUDO's interior. "The design will represent the shape of 'wind' inspired by the origin of IPPUDO, meaning 'the gust of wind' in Japanese." Takada says.

First Bite

Ippudo ramen shops are all over Japan, as well as New York and a few other international locations. Ramen noodle soup is to the Japanese what pho is to Vietnam: a staple with endless possibilities and variations. The Japanese company behind Australia's first has set up a commercial kitchen in south Sydney; the plan is for at least three, and if the standard is as high as that of New York, this place should be a huge hit. So what about the rest of Australia?
