The menu at Tonkotsu Walthamstow will feature the brand’s signature tonkotsu ramen as well as its chilli chicken ramen; vegan mushroom miso ramen; chicken kara-age; and varieties of gyoza such as classic pork, ginger and garlic, as well as king prawn, and shiitake and ginger.
It will also feature a new vegan cauliflower version of its wings.
The ramen specialist will be replacing its traditional ‘£5 ramen’ soft launch that often leads to long queues outside its new venues with a new online lottery where anyone who registers will receive a £5 voucher to use at the restaurant within the first three weeks of opening.
In addition, 30 people will be picked at random to receive a £50 voucher. Guests will be able to use the vouchers for dine in as well as for Tonkotsu’s new ‘Click and Collect’ service.
Tonkotsu was launched in Soho in 2012 by co-founders Ken Yamada and Emma Reynolds. It operates 12 restaurants (including Walthamstow) in London and a further restaurant in department store Selfridges in Birmingham.
Last year the group announced that it was planning for further expansion following a £5m investment from YFM Equity Partners.
