SquareMeal Review of Yamagoya Soho

Bronze Award

The second location for Japanese ramen joint Yamagoya (there’s already a site on South Bank) finds its home in Soho, beneath Chinese hotpot specialist Shuang Shuang.

The pared-back space takes inspiration from Tokyo’s ramen shops, with visitors able to perch on stools by the window or at the kitchen counter to watch the chefs at work. The menu kicks off with small bites such as fried pork gyoza, and chicken karaage with a yuzu mayonnaise.

For the main event, there’s bowls of steaming ramen, including the signature ‘Yamagoya’ – handmade noodles in a rich tonkotsu broth, garnished with Japanese chashu pork belly, marinated bamboo shoot, Kikurage mushroom and nori. New additions meanwhile, see a roast beef ramen, and a vegan rice dish featuring fried vegetables, pickled greens and a house curry sauce.

Finish up with desserts including mocha ice creams and the Insta-famous raindrop cake, which is completely see-through.
