Tonkotsu Ramen Bar coming to Selfridges in Birmingham
Tonkotsu, one of London’s best-loved ramen bars will open a restaurant in Selfridges in Birmingham’s Bullring this September. It will be the first Tonkotsu outside the capital and the team is very happy to be partnering again with Selfridges after becoming a popular choice for shoppers in the Oxford Street store.
Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish containing stock – usually pork and chicken – with a special wheat noodle and toppings including marinated egg, slices of pork, wakame seaweed and bean shoots. Tonkotsu is proud to make all its noodles in-house thanks to their bespoke noodle machine, giving a fresh, springy noodle. Tonkotsu is the name of the richest, porkiest ramen dish – serves a variety of completely authentic, delicious, short-menu ramen with various starters, sides, artisan Japanese beers and whiskies to complete the menu.
In addition to the authentic ramen, chicken karaage – delicious Japanese fried chicken – and gyoza dumplings, Tonkotsu Birmingham will serve katsu curry, perfect for a mid-shop pit stop. Japanese and British lagers and ales will be on offer along with house cocktails and wines. All dishes will be available to take away.
Tonkotsu is a group of six London restaurants, including Selfridges Oxford Street Foodhall, serving ramen with homemade noodles in slow-cooked broths, along with craft beers and cocktails. For locations, check out www.tonkotsu.co.uk.
