Supa Ya Ramen

Opening up a new spot on Kingsland Road last year, this is an intimate 20 seater ramen bar serving up a menu ramen bowls and a selection of small plates and side dishes. Slurp up handmade ramen in sloppy chicken stock, house soy and Iberico pork fat with toppings of pickles, fudgy egg and fried garlic.

The chef behind the concept is Luke Findlay who has worked at some of London’s top restaurants, including The Hand & Flowers, NOPI and Patty & Bun.

Tonkotsu has plenty of practice serving up noodles to the massive with outposts at all ends of the country from Birmingham to Brighton. Our favourite place to call in for a ramen is in Battersea Power Station. Order a bowl of the Tonkotsu signature pork broth and tuck into thin-cut homemade noodles topped with roast pork belly, bamboo shoots, spring onions, burnt garlic oil and egg. Apparently, the key to their success is cooking the noodles for exactly 32 seconds.
