In just a few days the wait will be over.
No, not (sadly) the end of COVID and winter lockdowns.
But the long-rumoured and eagerly-awaited 12th Tonkotsu restaurant will be finally be opening in Walthamstow! Instagram will be on fire with pictures of steaming ramen bowls!
Obviously it’s going to be open just for delivery and ‘click and collect’ for now. But they (like every other restaurant in the UK!) hope to be able open for dine-in early in December.
Around 3,000 lucky locals signed up to get a £5 voucher, so there should be literally bus loads of people hoping to try it out next weekend. For anyone that missed out on the voucher there is 15% off Click & Collect orders over £20. The code for that is NOVCC15 and is valid until the end of December.
I’m guessing the menu is going replicate the click and collect menu available at their other nearby restaurants – so should include classic meat and vegan ramen bowls with their home-made stock and 3 types of noodles, chicken and courgette katsu curry, various gyoza, and a couple of lighter noodle salad options, plus ice-cream desserts, some interesting beers, cocktails and sake.
Anyway, to get your peek inside, here’s some pics of the build for you!
