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.
