Ramen is a common comfort food, re-kindling memories of student hall kitchens, oblongs of dried noodles and sachets of MSG. London has come a long way from that kind of ramen thankfully.
So ramen specialists, Bone Daddies, have been highly successful and are almost a mini-chain in London. Can their standards be maintained? LFM is glad to report that the ramen served in the High St Kensington branch is spot on. The 20 hour pork broth was rich and luscious. The cherry on the top, or in this case, a deep fried soft shell crab, perfected the dish. LFM also sampled the Korean deep fried chicken wings starter which was satisfying and tasty although we’ve had better elsewhere with a less ‘industrial’ taste.
The restaurant is based in the top floor food court of Whole Foods which gives it a rather casual vibe. This is perfect for bringing the little ones with high chairs available and plenty of room for buggies. Nice (and slightly odd) touches were the additions on the table of bibs, hair ties and garlic crushers.
Extremely happy with this opening in SW London and hurrah, no need to trek into central London with the bulky buggy for that ramen fix.
