Shoryu Ramen Lands In Manchester In A Few Weeks Time!
Hold the phone
Put your soggy sarnies away...
...Because the Japanese hotspot that is Shoryu Ramen is set to open its doors in Manchester this month.
Specialising in authentic Hakata cuisine - the 55 cover restaurant - which is Shoryu Ramen’s first outside of London, will open for the very first time on Wednesday 30th November in Piccadilly Gardens.
Offering its signature Hakata tonkotsu ramen, Shoryu buns and Gekkeikan Royal Warrant Sake, this latest addition to the Manchester food and drink scene will be the seventh of Shoyru Ramen's restaurant sites, plus Shoryu Go, a dedicated tonkotsu ramen take-out bar.
The interior will feature an alfresco dining area, an open kitchen and a mini dining pod for smaller groups. A relaxed bar area, and an intimate sake lined dining area with white tiles and brick work decoration will create a light, welcoming atmosphere.
CEO Tak Tokumine said:
“UK noodle culture has really become more sophisticated in recent years. As the British market has become more accustomed to noodles, we're able to introduce very specific dishes, such as Hakata tonkotsu ramen, for those looking for the real deal."
"I want to make sure everyone can experience real flavours, real dishes on their doorstep, so I am really pleased to be able to introduce authentic ramen to the people of Manchester next month!”
As well as ramen, the Shoryu menu will also include staples such as the ‘Shoryu Buns’ fluffy, steamed and hand-made, diners will be offered a selection of six fillings including the ever popular BBQ pork.
Another menu staple expected to fly off the shelves is the traditional gyoza, filled with pork and served in a sizzling tetsunabe cast-iron skillet - and of course, ever-growing in popularity - a range of tempura and sashimi dishes.
Wash it all down with traditional Japanese rice wine

Sake will feature prominently on the new Shoryu drinks menu and will include a large range of Japanese inspired cocktails, made with sake, whisky and umeshu (a sweet Japanese liqueur made from steeping ume fruits in alcohol and sugar.)
The Yuzu Mojito sounds particularly mouth-watering - featuring a mix of strawberries, lime, mint and sugar with white rum and yuzu citrus umeshu over crushed ice.
For the blokes, Japanese beers such as Kirin, Asahi and Musashino Craft Beer will also available.
