It seems that London’s love for ramen is just getting stronger.. first we had Bone Daddies open up in Old Street and now a fifth Shoryu Ramen has set up shop in Covent Garden. All the Shoryu staples are present and correct. The char sui pork hirata buns are sweet, sticky and fluffy, the Hakata Tensunabe Gyoza are light and crispy, and both the signature Shoryu Ganso Tonkotsu and richer, meatier Kotteri Hakata Tonkotsu slipped down a treat. As if you needed more reason to go, the new site also boasts an exclusive Truffle Tonkotsu; their trademark ramen upgraded with truffle and fried shallots. With a big list of sakes, cocktails and teas, you’re more than covered drinks-wise too. Making Mondays more bearable there’s also a BOGOF on the bun situation, hooray!

The staff are super-friendly and give out great tips like pouring the soy dipping sauce over the gyoza and onto the hot skillet to release the aroma.. so get down to Shoryu and start slurping.
