5. Bento Ramen
A very mixed Asia looking restaurant over in Camden Town!
They had an enormous range of Ramen and Udon dishes, Sake and other small dishes.
They decoration was quite Chinese style, though we felt the chefs (who were out of site)
were likely to be Japanese, as the food was very cultured!
Was a great place to chill with your friends and slurp your life away!
Address: 29-31 Parkway, London NW1 7PN
4. Ramen Sasuke
The feeling of an Izakaya in London, this is Ramen Sasuke.
Everytime there’s an invite to eat ramen from different friends,
it’s always at Sasuke! They sport an cool ninja theme to their
Ramen restaurant, to be found in Central London.
A large choice of authentic ramen noodle dishes, with fresh hand-made
noodles imported all the way from the land of down under!
You’ll often find a lot of Japanese people in Sasuke (Meaning it’s the real deal!)
Address: 5 Panton Street, London, SW1Y 4DL
3. Monohon Ramen
MONOHON — a slang term in Japanese meaning, ‘the real thing’.
When we first discovered Monohon Ramen, they were doing a popup in
Shoreditch. A cute, yet, Oshare (Stylish) spot on a side road.
We were entised by a glowing chochin lantern outside.
The owner has a very interesting entreprenerial story, A British man who
found there weren’t any authentic Japanese Ramen spots like there were in Japan.
Monohono Ramen have concentrated on 1 or 2 dishes and have done them very well,
Japanese style attentive customer service and an amazing atmosphere!
The noodles are freshly hand made everyday, soup base is boiled for hours to extract great flavor.
Address: 102 Old Street, London EC1V 9AY
Ippudo, is an authentic Ramen chain restaurant, which has arrived all the way from
the land of the rising sun, now at Tottenham Court Road, London.
Ippudo has spared no expense on décor, with an amazing Mountain (Assumed Mt Fuji),
Carved in wooden beams, above their bar area. A very warm but sophisticated Japanese feel.
The food is just as good, with choices of various Ramen, Miso, Pork Bone broth and
plenty of side dishes. We’ve had a great time chatting with friends here and absorbing
the culture. With the big glass windows, you’re never bored, always something to see!
Address: 3, Central Saint Giles Piazza, St Giles High St, London WC2H 8AG, UK
Drum roll …. KANADA YA! This is hands down our favorite hangout for
Ramen noodle in London! First of all, the Ramen, thick broth Pork Bone Broth
cooked for hours on end extract full hearty flavour.
A choice of density in noodles (Al dente) and great toppings like Spicy Miso,
Salted Egg, Pickled Veg, you can get extra Char Siew pork slices (OMORI KUDASAI!),
But the greatest thing, has to be the cute location! Near Tottenham Court Road’s backstreets,
a small, cozy place, with white/silverish interior design. There is ALWAYS a que outside, which
just shows how popular the authentic Ramen is. Mr Kanada himself (The restaurant owner) can
be found serving customers and cooking in the back end, it’s nice to see his face on the logo, as
it feels nice and personal. Everytime we’ve visited, we found ourselves in a conversation with strangers
Can you say, “Meet more Nakama?”… So if you’re ever around at Kanada-Ya, you might bump into us!
