Daily Mail logo Daily Mail 3 days ago Louise Allingham For Daily Mail Australia

Ramen lovers are raving about this little Japanese restaurant hidden behind a quaint façade that has an unusual method for making its broth.

The kitchen at Umami Dojo in Pyrmont, Sydney, looks like something out of a science lab with a series of siphons they use to make their delicious bonito fish stock used in their Katsuo ramen. 

To make the stock, chef and co-owner Keiji Mizuno, infuses the broth with bonito shavings imported from Japan by passing it through a siphon that is usually used to make drip coffee.

Umami Dojo co-owner Yumiko Mizuno said bonito, a fish commonly used in Japanese broths, is highly volatile and needs to be cooked at a consistent temperature to get the best flavour.  

'By using siphons, it enables it to reach the best temperature to brew bonito shavings constantly and extract the best smokey flavour just before serving it,' she said. 

'We opened Umami Dojo to broaden Japanese dashi (fish broth) culture so more people here in Australia can experience real Umami from natural ingredients.'
