As you know, I’m always on the lookout for something a little different in Birmingham…

Tonkotsu, one of London’s best-loved ramen bars, will open a restaurant in Selfridges in Birmingham’s Bullring on September 5th.

Named after the pork bone commonly used as the base ingredient of broth for Hakata ramen, after the success of six locations (including Selfridges) in London, they’re moving north to bring their in-house made noodles to the people of the Midlands.

Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish containing stock – usually pork and chicken – with a special wheat noodle and toppings including marinated egg, slices of pork, wakame seaweed and bean shoots. Tonkotsu is proud to make all its noodles in-house thanks to their bespoke Japanese noodle machine, giving a fresh springy noodle.

Tonkotsu serves a variety of completely authentic, delicious ramen with starters, sides, Japanese craft beers and whiskies to complete the menu.
