Ippudo Aka Veggie Ramen

SquareMeal Review of Ippudo Villiers Street

Founded in Hakata on Japan’s Kyushu island, this international operation believes ‘ramen is a cosmos created in a bowl’: clearly these guys are serious about noodles. This third London branch, following sites in Canary Wharf and Covent Garden, sticks to the blueprint, offering Ippudo’s signature ramen-noodle bowls, with toppings including the likes of pork belly and poached egg. Other menu highlights include chicken karaage, hirata buns, gyoza hiyayakko (a cold tofu salad with anchovy and salted kelp). Take a seat at the bar for cocktails or a range of sakés, squint a bit, and you could almost be in Hakata Bay.
