The man. The ramen

Three weeks into our pop-up residency and the Ramen is going out the door faster than we can say "tonkotsu!". And it's all thanks to the genius who is Nick Smith, the man who fell into a steaming bowl of broth months before we decided on this pop-up idea and emerged somehow speaking Japanese, staring at clouds until a grand moment of inspiration struck him in the form of 3 distinct broths. 

The Light - Chicken, bonito and 3x salt

The Light - Chicken, bonito and 3x salt

The biggest compliment anyone can give Nick on this warming ramen is the disbelief he is not Japanese! But don't let us tell you how soul-nourishing the Darkness is or how The Light may remind you of nanna's jewish penicillin and the comfort of a warm fire. And definitely don't let us tell you how the gentle ginger burn behind the miso broth in The Monk will add years to your life. Come in and try it for yourself!

As I write this we are looking at 5 weeks to go! ...and still no confirmation as to where we'll end up next.
