RAmen!

What?Shoryu, it's called Shoryu.

Where? Luckily, you've got three opportunities to try this restaurant, as it has three branches: Soho, Regent St, and Carnaby. Perfect locations if you get hungry while crazy shopping!

Why? If you are a Ramen lover, you'll get hooked to this place. I haven't tried many other restaurants that serve this japanese dish but one thing got me attracted. It's full of locals dining there, and that is always a good sign.

With it's perfect location, this japanese-style restaurant serves one of the best Tonkotsu Ramen I've tried for a while. Eventhough some of the other dishes, specially the starters/sides, are a bit of a fusion between continental and asian food (e.g.: Hirata Buns with fried Halloumi) the Ramen does not deceive. That rich, fat broth, filled with nitamago egg, lots of pork, and lots of veg! Mmm, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

When? That would be my only drawback. The kitchen closes at 10,30pm! Coming from Spain, that is something very difficult to understand for me.

However, I wouldn't miss the opportunity to try it. Because once you go, it is certain you'll come back.

Hirata Buns. I saw them at the table next to us and couldn't resist ordering them. They buns are very peculiar, with a sweet taste. If you get one, make sure you don't take the halloumi one.

I played safe and tried the their signature ramen: Shoryu Gonzu Ramen, which comes with tonkotsu pork broth, nitamago egg, kikurage mushrooms, spring onion, sesame, ginger, nori & mayu (caramelised black garlic oil) and fried shalots. But next time I'll be more adventurous and probably try something more spicy!
