We currently have an urge for ramen most weekends. Today we have tried Tonkotsu in Soho, Dean Street. We both went for the Tonkotsu ramen and added an extra of nori (Japanese seaweed). The portion was good, particularly the amount of pork which is often lacking in other ramen eatery's we have been to. They provide all the condiments including fresh garlic which you squeeze yourself (must admit I would prefer if this was already prepared as I now have garlic fingers). Atmosphere is relaxed but the tables could be a bit higher to stop the ramen splashing all over our clothes (perhaps I need chopstick practice). I like the communal sitting arrangements (long tables seating up to 8 people with couples sat opposite) and the rustic decor. Green tea is unlimited, but hard to get through with the piping hot ramen. Overall, a good experience and definitely a place to compare with our other favourite ramen restaurants.

Me and my now husband (we got married in August 2016) have spent most of our free time in restaurants. This blog includes both up-to-date reviews and historical reviews for venues both in London and further afield.
