Shoryu Ramen Manchester, 1 Piccadilly, Manchester, M1 1RG – Visit Now
Piccadilly’s Japanese noodle restaurant, Shoryu Ramen, has launched a DIY Shoryu kit meal so diners can make their favourite dishes at home during lockdown. These are available to order online from japancentre.com and the kits include everything budding chefs need to make the group’s famous, signature Ganso Ramen at home.
Rather ironically, Japanese food joint Shoryu sits on the Far East of Piccadilly Gardens, serving up high-quality ramen for those daring enough to make their way through the crowds of men in parkas arguing about Oasis and sweating teenagers doing kickflips over broken fountains.
Shoryu has been a Deliveroo success story in the city, loved for its strong menu and smart packaging, but it’s easy to overlook the modest, little site in Manchester’s oddest garden. Not everyone does, though. It was bursting at the seams when we arrived.
High-quality ramen for those daring enough to make their way through the crowds
Shoryu Ramen are marking Halloween with some devilish creations this year. They’re showcasing a brand new ghoulish menu up until the 3rd November, featuring treats like spooky bao buns and pitch-black ramen (with a little help from squid ink).
Trick or treaters will love Shoryu’s terrifying twist on their classic menu
Trick or treaters will love Shoryu’s terrifying twist on a classic bao bun. With frightful fillings including BBQ Pork, Chicken Karaage and Pumpkin Croquette even the veggie ghouls can take a bite into Shoryu’s menu.
The buns are paired with deadly delicious broths such as Shoryu Tonkotsu, a signature broth with black squid ink and fried shallots. Alternatively, guests can try the new Dracula Tonkotsu, a broth caramelised black garlic mayu, garlic chips, fried shallots and topped with egg. The Black Natural is sure to get taste buds tingling with Shoryu’s unique blend of tonyu soy milk, miso, atsuage fried tofu, kikurage mushrooms, spring onion, menma bamboo shoots and nori seaweed.
Last but not least, dessert…I-Scream! Shoryu’s Halloween dessert selection boasts a Gudetema Graveyard Chocolate Mousse, Ghoulishly Green Matcha Cheesecake and Muddy Miso Brownie. Options for drinks pairings include mango ice tea, calpico and more.
