Review on Bone Daddies
Bone Daddies on the site once occupied by Melati in the heart of Soho is the first solo enterprise from talented Aussie Chef Ross Shonhan, the former Head Chef of the critically acclaimed Zuma and Nobu restaurants. Described as a Rock'n'Roll Ramen Bar, diners can expect a buzzy atmosphere with loud music and a menu dedicated to ramen, a Japanese noodle dish, consisting of Chinese style noodles served mainly in a meat, but occasionally a fish-based broth, which can then be flavoured with soy sauce or miso.
The small interior is flooded with lots of natural light from the large front windows and has been decorated in the fashion of a Japanese izakaya, which are casual drinking establishments serving food. Bone Daddies has high stools and benches set against communal light wooden tables, with one wall featuring an eclectic collection of Japanese posters.
Typical snacks on offer are Yellowtail sashimi, chilli, ponzu and coriande or soft shell crab with green chill ginger sauce. Amongst the Ramen dishes on the menu you could opt for the very popular Tonkotsu ramen, a pork bone broth that has been cooked for 20 hours, or there's a dipping ramen with spring onion, kizami nori and chashu pork made from chicken bone broth. All of the ramen dishes are served with Clarence Court egg, bamboo and bean sprouts and you can choose a selection of extra toppings as well.
To complement the food there's a concise wine list, cold and hot sake, cocktails, Japanese whisky and beers including Asahi Super Creamy Head. A second branch opened in December 2014, located on the first floor of the Whole Foods Market shop on Kensington High Street and a third in 2016 on Old Street, Shoreditch.
