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.
You can check out Shoryu Soho from now up until 19th July (their soft and grand opening period) to try their ramen for just £5!
