The dish that blew me (…) away on my first visit was Wasabi Tonkotsu, which saw a sinus-purging whack of potent fresh and pickled wasabi added to a gari-free Shoryu Ganso. It was in many ways the perfect meal; lovely to look at, nourishing, complex – each mouthful slightly different in taste and texture from the last – and filling without leaving one bloated…

I tried the standard house Tonkotsu (“Ganso”) which was (…) rather nice, with a soothing milky broth and generous helping of bouncy egg noodles. Perhaps the slices of rolled pork weren’t quite as powerfully flavoursome as those at Tonkotsu, and perhaps Bone Daddies has a slightly more exciting variety of styles, but this was still a good ramen…

I enjoyed this so much more than the Wag sophistication, the minimal etiquette of sushi restaurants, with their laughable expense and regrettable clientele – the aimless international, the crookedly commercial and the coarsely available…

Star of our visit, though, was a fresh and delicious ‘chuka wakame’ salad, with avocado and cucumber. Friendly but slightly chaotic service completes a general air of authenticity…

The menu is short: six varieties of tonkotsu plus a few soy- and miso-based options. They use Hakata-style hosamen noodles: thin, pale and straight, with nice springiness and bite. But the chashu pork in the tonkotsu has a greyish, cheap roast dinner quality, and the soup lacks body…

A good ramen has three key components: a well-flavoured broth, bouncy noodles and interesting toppings. The basic Hakata ramen we tried had a rich, milky pork-and-chicken-bone broth with plenty of pale egg-yolk-yellow, own-made noodles crowned with slices of unremarkable barbecued pork, crunchy cloud ear mushrooms and slivers of bright red pickled ginger…

I tried out the Hakata Tonkotsu and was immediately unimpressed with the soft, bog-standard noodles. The broth was reasonably creamy, but instead of the fatty richness I expected to find, it tasted predominately of sesame seed oil and pickled ginger…

Shoryu’s space is airy and bright, with fairly spartan furnishing - think blond wood tables, leather benches along the walls, a simple bar counter and paper lanterns (…) The pork broth is just spectacular…
