Sūpa Ya Ramen | ‘Traditionally Inauthentic’ Ramen In Hackney
There’s nothing more soul-nourishing than a big bowl of soupy noodles.
Can I get a ramen?
Especially if they’re coming to you courtesy of ex NOPI and Berber & Q chef Luke Findlay who – noting a gap in the market – decided to set up the now cult underground supper club Sūpa Ya Ramen in his very own home.
That was actually quite a while back now, and quickly led on to a whole load of further sell-out pop-ups, collabs, and take-overs. However, finally Findlay has decided to give the people what they’ve clearly always wanted…
…a permanent supply of top-notch noods.
The plan is to open a site on Hackney Road. The exact date is still TBC, however it will definitely happen by the end of the year. We also know it’s going to an intimate little place – around 10-15 covers, so not world’s away from the supper clubs which is nice.
Food-wise he’s calling it ‘traditionally inauthentic’ ramen, which, in other words means ramen with an often bold and unexpected Findlay spin. There will be three permanent options, and a weekly special, which – note to the super fans out there – have never been served before.
But if you want to get a sneak preview, you can still head along to his Saturday night supperclubs.
NOTE: Sūpa Ya Ramen plans to open its first permanent site on Hackney Road by the end of 2020. The exact date is yet to be confirmed, but as soon as it is we’ll be here with the scoop. You can book into the Saturday night supperclubs on his Instagram page HERE.
