Shoryu Soho Opening

Three days ago, I attended theShoryu Soho opening party. Giulia from Mondomulia had kindly asked me along to join her at this special event. This was my second time to the Shoryu Soho branch. I visited before during their soft opening a while back to try their tonkotsu ramen.

Shoryu specialises in Hakata tonkotsu ramen from Kyushu, southern Japan.
Made with a thick, rich pork soup, our tonkotsu ramen originates from the Hakata district of Fukuoka city in Kyushu, southern Japan. Our recipe has been specially created by our Executive Chef, born and raised in Hakata, to provide highly crafted, genuine tonkotsu rarely found outside Japan.” -Shoryu Ramen

The evening began with a cask of sake being broken open, to us shouting “YOISHO!” We were served a semi-dry premium grade sake from the cask and glittering real gold flakes can be seen in our sake masu (square wooden box). All of us were fascinated and took quite a while to try and photograph the amazing gold flakes.

Our first course was the restaurant’s signature Shoryu Ganso Tonkotsu Ramen which went really well with the sake served. The two other courses that followed were also accompanied by matching sake.

The bunch of us had a really good time and would like to thank Shoryu ramen for their kind hospitality.

A hot day…

On a hot day like today, I thought I would blog about ice cream.

The dude is a massive fan of ice cream. He always tells the childhood story of how his grandfather used to take him to the freezer after dinner and would always gives him a scoop of cold creamy vanilla ice cream. That’s his reason for being hooked on this dessert.

We were on our honeymoon in Granada when we found this amazing heladeria (aka gelato shop) called Los Italianos.

Typically in an ice-creamery, you would be able to view the colour/ toppings of the selection but at Los Italianos, you get a list of flavours (in spanish of course) on the wall alongside piled up cones. All the ice cream is tucked away so you can’t exactly drool over what you see. You order your flavours from the servers and then pay a different lady who just sits by the till.

My favourite flavour is pistachio and I reckon I tasted my favourite so far.
If you ever get to Granada, I recommend a visit(or more) to Los Italianos. This is definitely one of the best ice creameries I have ever been to.

Will you be getting an ice cream or gelato today? What’s your favourite flavour?
