Curry Ramen with Roast Chicken and Turmeric

The first recipe I made for my blog was a curry ramen recipe, inspired by the dish I first tried at Shoryu Ramen in Regent Street. Find the recipe here. Since then, I have returned to Shoryu and tried their curry ramen dish again and decided to make a new curry ramen with a more […]

Vietnamese Chicken Pho

Today’s recipe is, controversially, not ramen. It’s not even from Japan. It is, however, pho, the Vietnamese national dish. I discovered pho (pronounced ‘fuh’) a few weeks ago in Brighton and realised that this noodle dish is like a light, summery Vietnamese version of ramen, with rice noodles and a light broth with a herby […]

Springtime Coconut Tamarind Ramen with Kaffir Lime

I love the subtle creamy flavour of coconut milk mixed with the tang of kaffir lime leaves in Thai curries, so I thought recreating this pairing in a ramen would make a nice light broth for springtime. It would be perfect for the Easter period, after having had a big roast on Easter Sunday. Lime […]

Soymilk Ramen with Katsu Chicken

I first tried a soymilk ramen at the Shoryu restaurant in Soho last December. Having looked into how to recreate it, I couldn’t believe that this broth has no meat stock in it at all and relies on vegetarian ingredients for its intense flavour. It is quite a rich broth, due to the soymilk and […]

Katsu Chicken

Katsu chicken is more usually found served with curry sauce and rice, but this works so well with the more flavoursome ramen broths, for its crunchy texture and delicate flavour. As long as you place it carefully on top of your noodles and broth, it will keep its crispiness. You can cut it into slices, […]

Winter Warming Chilli Chicken Ramen

The perfect way to use up Sunday roast chicken and veg, this has a warming kick of chilli from Korean gochujang paste. For something a bit different, I have used brussels sprouts as a topping. Cook the stock with the chicken bones for as long as possible, preferably a few hours or an hour or […]

Autumn Easy Ginger-Miso Ramen

Now the days are shortening and the nights are feeling chilly, I have created an easy ramen recipe you can whip up after work. Using miso and fresh ginger for flavouring the broth, it is perfect to warm you on a cold evening. Using hoisin marinated chicken for the meat topping was inspired by a […]

Sticky Soy Chicken

A great basic chicken topping for your ramen, this has a savoury-sweet flavour. Any leftover glaze can be added to your broth for extra flavour.   Serves 2-3 Ingredients 3 skinless boneless chicken thighs 1 tbsp. groundnut oil 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped 1 […]

Curry Ramen

A curried dashi broth topped with chicken, menma and spinach. I am a big fan of any type of curry; Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian…the list is endless. So combining ramen noodles with a classic Japanese curry roux is always going to be a winner in my books. Again this is inspired by a dish I […]

Chilli Miso Ramen

A miso broth flavoured with fresh chilli and topped with a simple chicken topping, this is a more extreme version of the classic miso broth, with the chilli giving a clean heat. Depending on how hot you like your meals, you can add extra chilli or even add a few dried red chillis to the broth. The […]
