Kanada Ya, Covent Garden, London
I had a tiny bit of time to kill before checking out the nearby Book of Mormon. So I stepped into Kanada-Ya for a rapid fire ramen retreat. My dinnertime ended up being shorter than I had anticipated, but I still made it in and out the door in single digit minutes. So that was impressive. My food order was for the original tonkotsu (£12) with pork belly, nori, fungi and spring onion. I went with the recommendation of the chewy-level noodles, the harder texture of this ramen was enjoyable. The broth was good, quite simple compared to others I have had. The chashu was rather on the fatty side, but at least you get three strips of it. The truffle ramen looks like where it’s at, but that’s even pricer at the £14 mark. So a solid bowl of ramen, but expensive even without all the toppings.
