Tokyo inspired ramen bar

Running down the centre of RaRa is a 14m long concrete bench - part bar, part kitchen, and every part for slurping ramen..

This 28-seater eatery was created for Katie Shortland and Scott Gault, who were trained in Japan by ramen masters. There’s even a 380kg Yamoto machine imported from Japan - yup, the noodles are made inhouse daily. Yum.

The izakaya-style eatery takes its design cues from Japanese microbreweries and cafes. Think warm timber accents, a slight industrial edge and full-length windows to capture the noodle-making magic unfolding in the open kitchen.

Plus the pink neon light installation by Nani Puspasari to encourage a beer on the side.
