Kanada Ya

Ramen invasion

Kanada Ya
Kanada Ya is a brand new ramen bar just opened near Tottenham Court Road. Part of an already successful business operation in Japan, the company surely is trying to take a share of the booming ramen business in London. With ramen concept proven to be such a popular choice for Londoners with the likes of Bone Daddies, it makes perfect sense for Kanada Ka to enter the UK market, similar to the likes of what Five Guys and Shake Shack are doing with the burgers. The ramen bar is sticking to its traditional roots, it is tiny with an open kitchen and informal services, with only 3 choices of ramen and one type of snack.

I managed to try the moyashi ramen and chasiu ramen, both the pork broth were cooked 18 hours long according to the menu. The broth style is just like a proper ramen should be, rich, bold with powerful savoury tastes, the sliced chasiu and fungus benefited from the broth which added moisture and texture. As witnessed by the long queues waiting to get into this tiny ramen bar, it seems like it is already winning over Londoners with its no nonsense approach, its classic style ramen which are quite different to other ramen joints as most of them add a twist to try to adapt to a more western friendly formula.
