It’s official. I have just renamed a restaurant, formerly known as ‘I Like Ramen’ to ‘I Love Ramen’. After recently dining again at Australia’s first and only 100% plant-based ramen restaurant, any words short of superlatives would be understating the facts: this is one exceptional place! Begun by Bobby Douglas as a stall at Miami...
