photo 3Our lil’ bro’ Shoryu Ramen just continues to surprise and delight us. Already serving the people of London the best tonkotsu ramen this side of Hakata, they’ve gone and taken their superb offerings out on the open road with the shiny new Shoryu ‘Ramen wagon’. Like any proud sibling, we at Japan Centre are singing the praises of Shoryu Ramen’s latest achievements from the rooftops…

There would be no Japan Centre or Shoryu without intrepid entrepreneur Tak Tokumine. Heralding from Fukuoka in southern Japan, he came to the UK in the 1970s for love, but his ambition and passion led him to establishing London’s premier Japanese food hall and more recently, the Michelin recommended and unstoppable Shoryu Ramen. We sat down with Tak over a cup of freshly ground matcha tea to find out more about the man behind Japan Centre.
