Ramen! At! YO! Sushi!

Ramen menu

It seems as though ramen’s the dish of the season. With the weather getting chillier, it’s perfect for a cold night, and it’s a lighter alternative to the traditional stew.

Restaurants such as Bonedaddy’s are taking advantage of this resurgence, along with Japan Centre opening Shoryu Ramen, and Tonkotsu also offering the dish.

Now it’s time for YO! Sushi to join that club. They’ve had Ramen on their menu for a while in smaller quantities, but this winter they’ve launched their own Ramen menu.

Created by the executive chef Mike Lewis, there are 5 seperate dishes on offer, all with a shoyu broth with pickled bamboo shoots and fresh ramen noodles.  There’s the miso-dare (chicken), chashu (pork), five spice gyu (beef), kaisen (fishcake) and kitsune (vegetable).

They’re served in quite a hearty-sized bowl, and quite reasonably priced at £7-£8. So perfect also if you want a quick take away.

When I was invited down to their Southbank restaurant to taste the menu, I had the five spice gyu (beef) ramen.

It needed an extra kick of garlic paste and chili, although this added to the warmth of the dish.

Whilst there, may I also recommend the desert I usually get – the dorayaki, which is Japanese pancakes with custard filling and raspberry sauce. I can’t stop at just the one plate though, so be careful yourself.
