It’s been a long time coming (we first caught wind of Bone Daddies‘ plans for an outpost in Shoreditch last summer!) but now one of the capital’s hippest chains has finally announced an opening date. The purveyor of “addictive” noodles arrives at the new Bower development in Old Street on 20 June, next door to Ceviche’s east London site.
This will be the fifth Japanese restaurant from owner Ross Shonhan, who is also behind Covent Garden’s Flesh & Buns and Shackfuyu in Soho. The new site will be the third Bone Daddies, though there are plans for a fourth at Victoria’s Nova development. Located on the corner of Baldwin Street, the 65-cover restaurant will incorporate a bar counter and, as usual, takes no reservations. Get ready to queue Shoreditch trendies!
As well as the usual ramen and snacks there will be a selection of dishes unique to the site, such as dressed-up Kushikatsu – skewered, breaded and fried meats and fish with assorted sauces. The signature Yuzu Margarita will top the cocktail list.
On the menu: 20-hour pork bone broth Tonkotsu; crispy duck aburamen with roasted sweetcorn and pickled padron peppers; a selection of Kushikatsu served with assorted sauces will also be a first for Bone Daddies. The signature Yuzu Margarita will be among a list of new and favourite cocktails, alongside beers, cider, sake and wine.
