Kanada-Ya

Arriving at 12:30pm on a Saturday, a fairly long queue greeted us at Kanada-Ya, despite being directly opposite Japanese ramen chain Ippudo. Undeterred by the snow, cold and rain, we persevered, and it paid off.

We decided to order the Tonkotsu X (£10.50), as it was unique to London. It consists of pork and chicken broth, wood ear fungus, pork belly chashu, seaweed and spring onion. Their ingredients are flown from Japan, and the skill and care taken in preparing them is evident.

The broth was rich and flavourful, yet not too salty to slurp up. The chashu was absolutely melt-in-your mouth tender. I was particularly impressed with the service – they graciously allowed us to share a bowl and made no attempt to rush customers despite the long queue outside.
