On Monday night, I visited the recently opened Shoyru Ramen.
Greeted by a cheerful waitress who gave me a choice of tables; high table, low table or counter option at the open kitchen. I positioned myself facing up to the open kitchen which was buzzing with activity.
I settled in with a draught Kirin beer to browse the menu. The restaurant was over half full, not bad for a wet and windy Monday evening in Manchester!
The menu promptly arrived, attached to a wooden clipboard, with a Set Menu option on the first page for £22, which comprised of two courses and a house cocktail.
The waitress politely explained the concept and discussed the house signature dishes and the options of how I could have my noodles cooked.
I started with the famous Shoyru steamed buns (gluten free options available), containing chicken with a spicy BBQ sauce and Japanese mayo; great taste with a nice little kick from the sauce, and good value at £4.50.
The Wagyu beef option was also a great little bite but at £8.50 certainly wasn’t twice as good as the chicken version.
