Cuisine: Japanese, Ramen
Price Point: Mains from £10-£20
Filling bellies all over London with hot, comforting ramen, Tonkotsu has opened in East.
Bright and informal, Tokotsu East encourages communal eating with their long tables and a lengthy bar. The exposed piping in the ceiling gives it enough urban edge without being grungy and its simple yet tasteful décor keeps it classic and understated.
There’s ramen for days! Choose from six types of ramen, like their signature tonkotsu ramen or their new miso mushroom ramen. Then customise it to your taste with an array of add-ons like a seasoned egg, crab or pork belly. And if you don’t think that’ll fill you up, have a few pieces of gyoza on standby.
Accompany your Japanese feast with a bottle of the good stuff. Their wine list is short but carefully considered, but if you want the true authentic experience, get some Sake in! Alternatively, keep it cool with a Kirin beer or a red-orange ale.
