We’renaming 2014 the year of ramen with Japanese noodle joints opening left, right and centre.
The latest is Kanada-Ya, which has just thrown open it’s doors in Holborn – located exactly opposite ippudo, another new ramen joint opening this month. The restaurant started life in Japan so it’s pretty authentic – just queuing up in front of the big windows will have you feeling like you’re in Tokyo.
There’s 3 types of ramen, all noodles are made on site and there’s a short menu of extras if you fancy jazzing up your broth. We went for the Moyashi Ramen with pork belly, blanched beansprouts, Chashu Men and added black garlic and the deluxe chashu pork collar with soft boiled egg.
We requested our noodles cooked super soft and that they were. Fast and full of flavour with no gimmicks what so ever we have a feeling most of London will be sucking it up at Kanada-Ya soon.
