Shoryu, Kensington

Shoryu in Kensington opens today! And what’s better than ramen when it’s freezing outside?

Shoryu is now in Kensington – the brand-new branch of the popular ramen spot opened its door today, and it looks fabulous. Located just a short walk from Royal Albert Hall and the Design Museum, the new restaurant boasts modern interiors and a combination of table and counter seating.  

Shoryu specialises in Hakata ramen which takes its name from the district of Fukuoka city on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The broth is boiled for 12 hours to perfectly emulsify, and then combined with a secret base of ingredients called motodare. Noodles are made using flour milled in the Fukuoka Prefecture, and toppings consist of char siu barbecue pork belly, caramelised black garlic and delish soft boiled eggs. It is overall utterly delicious, soft and creamy – one of the best one can get in London for a reasonable price.  

Plus, if you fancy making some tasty ramen at home, you can order one of Shoryu’s DIY kits.
