“Finding a decent bowl of ramen in London is impossible”, the menu at Tsuru Ramen read. I couldn’t agree more, even the most decent place in London wouldn’t come anywhere close to the quality of those from Japan. Tokyo alone has over 3,957 shops (according to Tsuru) all serving excellent ramen. Owners Kensuke Yamada and Emma Reynolds attempted to solve this shortage by travelling to Japan to research the secret ingredients behind each authentic recipe. See their blog for the details of the trip.
