Close to the Eastern beaches Bondi, Bronte or Coogee Beach is a shopping mall called Bondi Junction. If you are staying/living close to the beaches you will most likely end up shopping at Bondi Junction Shopping Mall. Need a break or a quick lunch before continuing shopping? Check out Ichi- Ban Boshi Japanese Noodle House which serves vegan/vegetarian food as well!
Ichi- Ban Boshi Japanese Noodle House
This little restaurant is famous for it’s Japanese Ramen Soups and also serves diverse Japanese dishes. It is a very busy but also a very efficient little restaurant! You order and pay right as you walk in at the counter (like a fast food restaurant) and then you receive a number which you take with you to your table. The waiter then brings your food to the table once it is ready.
When you arrive at Bondi Junction you will find an outdoor shopping mall on Oxford Street which is where the Noodle House is located, right after Sports Girl.

Fried Tofu with Original Sauce
One of my favorite Tofu dishes is the Japanese style fried Tofu as it comes with a sweet tasting sauce. Just make sure you order it without the Bonito- Flakes, as it is made of dried fish!
Price 5.50 AUD/ 4.10 USD/ 3.90 EUR.
OMG! This Noodle Soup is sooooo delicious! It is packed with Japanese noodles, bamboo shoots, corn, carrots, soya sprouts and is topped with fried Tofu. To add some greens you can order them additionally. I usually add seaweed for omega 3.
Price: 11.90 AUD/ 8.90 USD/ 8.40 EUR.
I tend to alternate each visit with the soups 🙂 The difference here is that the broth is a salty vegetarian broth and it is packed with loads more veggies than the Tofu Ramen consisting of bamboo shoots, cabbage, carrot, corn, soya sprouts and noodles.
Price 12.90 AUD/ 9.90 USD/ 9.40 EUR
To make the soups vegan let the waiter know you want Udon Noodles as otherwise they add egg noodles and vegetarian broth!
I LOVE THE SOUPS! There are always delicious, packed with loads of veggies and sooooo filling. You never walk away hungry and I always end up eating everything to the very last drop!!
