A work colleague introduced me to the delights of Chocolate Buddha a couple of weeks ago when we were in Melbourne for work.  This week, I’m back in Melbourne for a couple of days and have a sudden craving for their delicious Japanese udon.

Chocolate Buddha has several things going for it, it’s conveniently located in Federation Square, the decor is simple, pleasing and functional, the glass walls afford uninterrupted view of Federation Square forecourt.  And the service is friendly, fast and efficient.

Today I opt for the gyu ramen: chili marinated and char-grilled beef served with vegetable dumplings, swiss chard and udon noodles.  The chili worked well with the medium cooked beef and subtle soup.  An extra splash of chili sauce spicing up the spinach and swiss chard.  Delicious!
