The restaurant, which serves 'traditionally inauthentic' ramen’ will open on London’s Hackney Road.
Founder and head chef Luke Findlay will oversee the 16-cover restaurant, and is promising to serve a ‘completely unique menu of signature new-wave bowls’, with a menu that will feayure three permanent ramens and a weekly rotating special.
Dishes on the launch menu include roast chicken and buttered corn ramen with smoked miso and sesame, bacon fat, buttered chilli corn, roast chicken, green onions and cured egg; salt beef and pickles - chicken soup, smoked bacon fat, ponzu soy, house chilli paste, salt beef, Supa Ya pickles, green onions and a cured egg; and roast celeriac and fried garlic - a root vegetable and sea salt soup containing charred spring onion oil, smoked miso and sesame, house chilli paste, roast celeriac, green onions, fried garlic and a cured egg.
A range of snacks, buns and sides will also join the menu in the coming months. The restaurant will be bring-your-own but it will serve a range of ‘retro’ soft drinks.
Supa Ya Ramen started out life as a weekly ramen supper club hosted in Findlay’s own kitchen. It has also held events at London’s Mortimer House and Snackbar.
The restaurant is also looking into home delivery options for those unable to venture out of the house because of the Coronavirus.
