The owner chef ,Jun Furukawa, was awarded by Michelin at the Ramen shop, MEN-EIJI, in 2016 Hokkaido Japan. Just opened the Australian version of MEN-EIJI, as ZURO ZURO Ramen Bar at Burleigh Heads, QLD.
It is very impressive that his passion is from the farm to the table, using local ingredients mainly from Queensland. The noodles are the one and only, made from scratch by his hand every morning.
Jun says “I started because I wanted people in Australia to eat real Ramen.”
