London ramen chronicles: Tonkotsu in Soho

When it comes to ramen it’s best to pull your hair back, tilt forward and start slurping… loudly.  Even better, go solo to avoid awkwardness about breaking the western protocol for good table manners or make polite conversation mid slurp.

A tour of London’s ramen bars: Bone Daddies

I’m a mad woman on a mission lately trying to make up for lost times.  Evidently 2012 saw a surge of ramen noodle bars propping up in London and I was completely unaware.  So what is a self-proclaimed noodlehead to do but patiently make amends by attempting to visit all the ramen this city has…
