The sensational noodle soup here has to be tasted to be believed. It was originally the little brother to the Koya restaurant but with the restaurant closed Koya Bar has moved onto top billing. One of the specialities here is Kinoko, which is a lovely mixture of udon, mushrooms and walnut. There are just 25 stools for customers here but it has an authentic, atmospheric feel to it.
Ippudo, Canary Wharf and Saint Giles
There are a number of excellent noodle soups to choose from in Ippudo. For example, the Shiromaru Hakata Classic is a fine tonkotsu pork broth with thin noodles, pork, loin, mushrooms, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, mushrooms and spring onions. Right now, there is a summer special ramen called the Hakata Tsukemen Ramen for you to try as well. The only issue here is that queues are often enormous and no bookings are taken.
Bone Daddies, Soho
For a different kind of noodle soup experience you could try this New York style ramen bar. The music is loud at Bone Daddies, the atmosphere is electric and there is a sizzling late night menu to get tucked into. The late night options include a curry ramen with fried chicken, cabbage and padron peppers.
Rosa's Thai Cafe, Soho, Angel, Stratford, Carnaby Street and various
With the help of a great location and an enticing menu, Rosa's is a very good option for a cracking noodle soup in London. You will find a range of excellent, healthy noodle soups on the specials boards every day here. There is also a set menu and a dinner menu. Particularly amazing is the herbal coconut soup called Tom kha udon, with udon noodles, mushrooms and chicken all in the mix.
Tonkotsu, various locations
There are branches of Tonkotsu in Selfridges, Dean Street, Canvey Street and Dunston Street now. They all offer terrific noodle soup options, such as the rich signature dish, also called Tonkotsu. In this dish, the home made thin noodles are mixed with pork stock, pork bell, egg, menma, spring onions and bean sprouts for a delicious soup.
