Monohon ramen to open first permanent site

New ramen concept Monohon is to launch its first permanent site in London later this year.

The former pop-up has secured a 30-cover restaurant at 102 Old Street, set to open by the end of 2016.

Monohon – which means ‘the real thing’ in Japanese – is the brainchild of former corporate man Ian Wheatley, who lived and worked in Osaka during the 1990’s.

He returned to the country in 2013 to study making authentic ramen, and has since launched a series of pop-ups in East London.

Wheatley said: “There is a strong lunch and dinner crowd in the area that we look forward to engaging with. Old Street has changed so much in the last 20 years but still has a good energy and I think the Clerkenwell side of the roundabout is about to develop rapidly and match the Shoreditch side. It is very exciting to be a part of that.”

Monohon’s menu will feature authentic ramen dishes such as Abura Soba, the most popular dish during its pop-up run.

Shelley Sandzer acted on behalf of the previous tenants in the deal.
