Stories Of Nooool, Carlton

MELBOURNE | Stories Of Nooool is a Carlton restaurant that’s serving up a menu focused on house-made broadly Japanese-inspired noodles dishes. I recently popped in to grab some photos for What’s on Melbourne.

The space, formerly home to the sadly closed Hong Kong-style cafe, TuanTuan, is not too changed from what it used to be. Furnishings and the general interior are a bit lighter and brighter, with the same ample amount of seating spread over a large, open space.

Noodles are the centrepiece of the menu, complimented by a selection of donburi, snacks, and desserts. Almost everything is made on-site from scratch, using top quality local and Japanese ingredients.

Crowd favourites include a French-style bisque broth filled with udon, topped with prawn katsu; smoked and torched pork belly with onsen egg and udon in a creamy truffle-flavoured broth; and “dry” udon with a creamy mentaiko (pollock roe) sauce, a generous scoop on mentaiko, and prawns.

For snacks, it’s things like bite-sized okonomiyaki, deep fried yam, and namban fried chicken with tartare sauce.

On the dessert side of things, inspiration comes from further afield than Japan. The signature dessert is fluffy Taiwanese-inspired snow ice. There’s a variety of flavours to choose from, like salted caramel, honeycomb, sake ice-cream.

To drink, there’s a selection of local and Japanese alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks like Suntory Premium Malts beer, sake, and Pokka flavoured teas.
