Cocktail Beer Ramen + BunJapanese
The name sums up this place’s offering succintly enough. Add the words ‘damn good’ at the start and it’ll be even more accurate.
Specialising in tonkotsu, made from long simmered pork bone broth, this small, hip NQ bar impresses even the most discerning ramen obsessives with its well-balanced bowls of noodly heaven.
Choose from four ramens, including the signature tonkotsu with its chashu pork belly and chestnut and apple stuffing. Or go for their steamed bao buns for a satisfying unami hit. There are several vegan options alongside the chicken, ox and pork belly.
All their pork is free-range from Cumbria. Sustainable sourcing is a priority here – see also their elegant cocktail menu which makes clever use of produce that’d normally go to waste. Cocktails are all available alcohol-free for non-drinkers, or low abv if you’re in for the long haul. With late-night opening, you could be slurping and sipping here until the early hours.
