Bone Daddies | Soho Ramen Restaurant
There are an endless number of fluttering curtains, on a multitude of Soho’s backstreets, that you’d do well to never peep behind.
Some of London’s secrets are just better left unseen.
But some of those fluttering curtains are worth venturing behind… like the one you’ll need to pass through to enter Bone Daddies.
It’s a Japanese ramen haunt captained by ex-Nobu (and Zuma) chef Ross Shonhan, that’s now spawned a number of spin-offs across the capital, including sibling restaurant Flesh & Buns.
With high stools, long tables, menus on clipboards, a wide range of sake and cocktails plus a rockabilly soundtrack, the restaurant’s relaxed and informal air stands in stark contrast to the big flavours scattered across the menu.
While fluffy bao, fried chicken and tart kimchi make for refreshing appetisers, the real goodness comes via the main event: steaming bowls of broth like the original Tonkotsu, a 20-hour pork bone broth with soft-boiled eggs and spring onion; and the mushroom ramen, a veggie broth bolstered with asparagus, bok choy, marinated tofu and garlic.
You’ll also have the option of souping up your broth with extra toppings, including, if you’d like to order them, a bowl of “cock scratchings”.
This is Soho, after all.
NOTE: Bone Daddies is open daily from 11.30am till late. You can find out more on their website HERE.
