Harden's survey result
“The best ramen in London – such a rich, meaty broth with just the right amount of fatty unctuousness” – is served at this franchise of a Japanese-owned brand, with branches in the West End and now Angel. The “nice, slurpy noodles” are “a firm favourite, great for cold days, hangovers, comfort food”, and come with a small selection of side dishes and rice.
“The best ramen in London” (“the pork broth is wonderful – there’s nought better on a cold day, when it really hits the spot”) scores nothing but high praise for this small Japanese noodle chain with bars in Soho, Covent Garden and now also in Islington. Top tip – look for the “Burford eggs done just enough with a slightly runny yolk” and “don’t miss the truffle ramen, which is absolutely the best!”
“Delicious ramen, unsurpassed in London” (“the broth is clearly a labour of love, so rich and silky”) is the verdict on these “authentic” outposts of a noodle chain, based in Japan: “no wonder there’s always a queue out the door!”. Top Tip – “the eggs are also amazing – order an extra one to add to your bowl”.
“Best ramen in London? Quite possibly!” These West End outposts of a Japan-based noodle chain are “nothing fancy” but boil up a “broth so meaty and delicious you have to finish the bowl, even if you feel as if you’re about to pop”.
