Another attempt to bring some Japanese Ramen to Londoners. A much closer replication than others but still does not quite meet the quality and flavours of Japan.

After 5+ City Pig’s analysis

 I was very excited to hear that Bone Daddies was opening up in Soho to bring some delicious ramen noodles to town.  There isn’t really a very good ramen noodle house in London and was hoping this would meet expectations.

We ordered the Tonkotsu ramen and some fried chicken for lunch and some green tea. The fried chicken was cooked very well, light and crispy - with very little excess oil. We polished this off very quickly and thought this was a promising start.

The Tonkotsu ramens arrived, but I immediately noticed how little soup broth there was. The soup was rather thick and felt a little gloopy.

The taste was rich in pork bone broth which had the depth. The noodles tasted very firm and the pork was tender.

However, it wasn’t the most filling lunch meal for an average cost of £20 each. The charge of green tea was quite expensive, £3 a cup which did not even taste amazing.  One thing to note, is that the green tea refills are not free and so you will be charged another £3 again!

The Japanese tradition in providing free green tea refills was not maintained here and was disappointed in the expensive price charged for a small cup.

As a result, the search still continues to find the perfect, satisfying and value for money ramen noodles that Londoners truly deserve to taste.
