When you’re heart broken nothing tastes good.
But Bone Daddies really knows how to soothe a wounded soul.
He know’s exactly what to do to cheer you up.
A) he blasts classic rock at you, it’s so loud that you have to raise your voice to be heard; and it’s too loud to even hear yourself think. Perfect.
B) he feeds you a huge, stonking bowl of steaming tonkotsu ramen – everything tastes better when it’s bad for you.
C) he takes care of you and offers you the largest bib I’ve ever laid eyes on; plus hairbands to tie your hair back. So, you can slurp your ramen with ease.
D) Bone Daddies is a restaurant for boisterous and loud friends. No need to throw your chopsticks at that cringey, amorous couple then.
Tonkotsu ramen broth is typically thick & creamy – why? because it is made from marrow bones that have been slowly simmered to smithereens.
All the Tonkotsu ramen here comes with an Ajitsuke Tamago egg, bamboo shoots and bean sprouts.
Tantanmen 2 – with tantanmen & chicken mince (chicken bone broth) £11
I found this one to be a little on the salty side, probably due to the chicken mince.
However despite that little hiccup, the noodles had that bite to them still, and the broth was thick and creamy. Oh so very slurp-able.
Tonkotsu Ramen – with spring onions & chashu pork (20hour pork bone broth) £11
Anything that states that it has been slowly simmering for over 20hours deserves to be marvelled at.
The broth was creamy, without being too heavy a balance that is difficult to get right.
This one was a real winner.
Soy Ramen – with mizuna, onion, nori, chashu pork (chicken bone broth) £9
Unlike it’s brothers on the menu the Soy Ramen is the safe choice if you’re a newbie to the ramen scene and don’t like your broth to be uberly thick as is one of the lightest dish in the whole menu.
Despite being on the lighter side, Bone Daddies doesn’t cheapen out on the flavour. So, ladies if you’re on a date – maybe go for this one.
Tantanmen – with sesame, chilli, pork mince & bok choy (chicken bone broth) £11
This was an explosion of flavour, you can really taste the chicken notes in the broth and it had slow fiery burn to it courtesy of the chilli and peanuts, it is the thickest broth out of all the ramen I had on the menu.
So thick, that after you finish it you could probably use the broth as a glorified gravy over rice.
Yes, I really did want to do this.
But was only restrained because rice wasn’t on the menu.
Don’t look at me like that, you would have wanted to do the same.
Out of all the tonkotsu ramen places I have been to Bone Daddies’ ramen broth has to be the most thickest, and intensely flavoured.
Though, I found the ramen here a little on the salty side; but that is probably what makes it so more-ish.
Bone Daddies again conforms to the no reservation trend that London seems to love so much lately. So avoid at peak hours if you don’t want to queue.
But let’s face it, you’re slightly intrigued as to why there’s a continuous queue here.
Sooner or later you’ll give in.
