If you know anything about the London food scene, and you’ve ever craved ramen or noodles, you know about Bone Daddies. And with recent announcements of new openings, Bone Daddies are slowly coming to dominate the London ramen scene. Which might not be that bad of a deal, given the incredible specials the noodle eatery serves up each month.
Alongside their already delicious selection of ramen bowls, wings, and bao, every month there’s an all new ramen special that pushes the boundaries of noodle, broth, and topping to the extreme. Collaborations come from established eateries as well as up-and-coming UK food stars, running the gamut from cheese vendors, to BBQ legends, to other ramen obsessives. In August they teamed up with JUICI JERK for a scorching hot, but chilled, ramen topped with plantains, jerk chicken, and plenty of scotch bonnet chilli. Then in September, hot sauce and supper club legends, Two Hot Asians, brought the Mala Hotpot special to Bone Daddies locations across London. And even when the specials come from Bone Daddies themselves, not forming part of a collaboration, they stand out from the pack – like their Veganuary special that was so acclaimed it became a permanent part of the menu.
Bone Daddies’ latest ramen special
For the month of October, they’re keeping things (relatively) sane, teaming up with Mancunian legends, New Wave Ramen. The New Wave Lamb Tantanmen features “Bone Daddies homemade chicken broth, spicy sesame, slow-cooked teriyaki lamb, bok choi, spring onions, Szechuan cock scratchings & oh-so chewy noodles”. Tangy and slightly sweet, deeply umami, rich, and spicy enough to clear your sinuses from your Autumn cold, it’s an intensely satisfying bowl of ramen. And it’s only available until the end of October – so head down quick and make sure you don’t miss out!
Bone Daddies has locations in Soho, Victoria, Bond St, Bermondsey, Old St, Putney, Richmond & High St. Kensington, with another location set for Waterloo. Head on down before the end of October to try out the Bone Daddies x New Wave Ramen collaboration New Wave Lamb Tantanmen. And be sure to keep an eye on socials to find out what other specials are also in the works.
