Harden's survey result
“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”.
“The hoards queuing outside know they’re in for a treat” at these cheap, “truly genuine”, “cheek-by-jowl” ramen newcomers in the West End (outposts of a chain originating in Fukuoka, in southern Japan); “the broth is so rich, the meat so unctuous, you’ll finish the bowl, even if you feel you’re about to burst!”
