SquareMeal Review of Shoryu Ramen Covent Garden

Bronze Award

Hakata Tonkotso ramen is Shoryu's house speciality – a slow cooked thick white pork soup, served with thin, straight ramen noodles, topped with poached egg that’s been marinated in soy, ginger and mirin and long-cooked char siu barbecue pork. If this doesn’t appeal, there’s always the fluffy Shoryu buns, filled with charsui pork, wagyu beef, or a range of sushi and sashimi. To drink? Sake, plum wine, real wine, green tea. It seems to have all the bases covered.

Shoryu Ramen comes from the team behind premier Japanese food hall Japan Centre, with multiple sites across the UK including eight restaurants in London. It specialises in street food from the Hakata district in Japan with a focus on its famous tonkotsu ramen, traditionally made with a rich pork broth and thin, straight noodles. Shoryu Ramen aims to bring the brilliance of this dish overseas via a specially crafted menu devised by executive head chef Kanji Furukawa who originally grew up in Hakata.  

Located just off Drury Lane, Shoryu Ramen Covent Garden is well suited for a spot of pre or post theatre dining, or simply if you’re in need of some grub after a day of pounding London’s pavements. The interiors at this particular spot are simple and modern, with exposed brick walls, spotlighting and a mural of Japanese fighters on the wall.  

The menu offers plenty of Shoryu Ramen’s signature dishes and is predominantly geared towards ramen. One of its most popular dishes is its traditional tonkotsu, a rich 12-hour pork broth topped with char siu BBQ pork belly, nitamago Burford Brown egg, kikurage mushrooms, spring onions, red ginger and nori seaweed. There’s plenty of choice though, with at least eight more options on the list along with vegetarian ramen and seasonal specials.  

Not in the mood for ramen? Take your pick from a selection of rice dishes and buns, including chicken katsu curry and BBQ pork buns stuffed with char siu BBQ pork belly, iceberg lettuce, cucumber, hirata sauce and japanese mayo. Finally, the drinks menu comprises a selection of beers ‘served Japanese style’, plum wine, shochu, whisky, sake and bespoke cocktails. Don’t miss the Kikizake Sake Flight which includes three servings from a selection of specialty sakes to enjoy with your choice of ramen.

I took my 11 year old granddaughter for a pre-theatre supper last night. She had the chicken ramen dish which she greatly enjoyed BUT IT GAVE HER TERRIBLE   FOOD POISONING!  She did not eat anything else that evening. She woke up at 5am with severe vomitting. She has no allergies and is normally a very fit child. The vomitting continued for hours and she became very dehydrated as she was unable to keep even water down. We have had to contact the emergency medical number 111
