This Japanese former street-food operation, named for its amazing pork ramen, churns out hearty bowls of handmade noodles in an umami broth.

What to order We also recommend the crunchy chicken karaage, gyoza—the perfect finger food—and the ‘okosama’ menu for youngsters, which includes ramen, a drink and portion of edamame beans.

Pipsqueak tip  Avoid the chain’s smaller offshoots in Notting Hill and Selfridges and head instead to Mare Street, Bankside, Haggerston or Soho, where highchairs are available.
