To celebrate our completion of Couch to 5K (more on that in a couple of days), we couldn't think of a better treat than big, steaming bowls of noodles at Tonkotsu.

We had both been here separately once before with our friends, so we knew it would be good - this is just my first chance to blog about it!

We had a very hungry man on our hands, so we got quite a generous spread of sides to go with our ramen.

Who am I kidding, I didn't exactly hold back either.

Gyoza, Chicken Kara-age and King Prawn Katsu.

I continue to be impressed by Tonkotsu - the overall taste and quality you get is very authentic, comforting and cooked perfectly.

As for the noodles, we both went for the classic Tonkotsu Ramen (pork bone broth)  -

The actual noodles are very fresh, not overcooked and soaks up the soup just as it should. Their seasoned egg is my favourite. I like to have wakame in my ramen though, which was missed!

Having tried both Bone Daddies and here, I would say that they are very different, and equally delicious. I enjoy the more laid-back, casual atmosphere of Tonkotsu more personally (BD is a little more trendy in my opinion), but I would be happy to go to either to get my ramen fix.

And let me tell you, when the craving hits, it hits hard.
