What: Supa Ya Ramen
In a nutshell: Next-level London ramen
Summing it all up: Chef Luke Findlay's ramen supperclub puts down permanent roots in Hackney.
Restorative ramen is on the cards for Hackney as popular supperclub Supa Ya Ramen gets ready to open its first permanent site in East London.
The supperclub turned restaurant is run by chef Luke Findlay who has had quite the restaurant career - he was Head Chef at Berber & Q in Spitalfields, development chef at Patty & Bun, and worked at NOPI and Tom Kerridge's Michelin-starred gastropub The Hand & Flowers.
Much like the tiny ramen joints you might find in Tokyo, Supa Ya Ramen's will have room for between 10 and 15 diners. So just managing to secure a seat here will be something of an achievement.
As for the ramen, Supa Ya Ramen pride themselves on offering something a bit different - what they're calling "new-wave bowls" There'll be three permanent ramens on offer plus a weekly rotating special. Recent examples to give you an idea include:
- Root vegetable olive oil and sea salt with celeriac chashu
- Roast chicken with buttered chilli corn
- Salt beef with Iberico pork fat and supa ya pickles.
If you can't wait for the Hackney opening you can catch them during a three-week takeover at Mortimer House. Every Friday and Saturday night from 31 January until 15 February they'll be at the club's eight seater Kitchen Table.
