Meet the Shoryu Ramen Wagon

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…


The  Shoryu Ramen wagon is (to the best of our knowledge) the UK’s only custom-made Hakata-tonkotsu ramen dispensing vehicle in action right now. But where are these ramen lovers heading next? Let’s take a look at what’s coming up for the wagon team:

Voted the ‘Best New Festival 2011’ and described by the Guardian as “a place where art, intellectualism and fantastic gastronomy share equal billing with music,” the Shoryu wagon team are reportedly “proper stoked” to be heading to this year’s Wilderness Festival, headlined by Icelandic superstar Björk. They’ll be selling their epic signature ‘Ganso’ tonkotsu ramen and soft, squishy, pillowy steamed buns with mouthwatering fillings for hungry revellers, day and night.foodies-2013-702x336The Shoryu Ramen wagon team will also be bringing their authentic, Hakata tonkotsu to Foodies Festival in Oxford on 29th, 30th & 31st August. This huge celebration of food & drink sees top chefs and food stalls spanning ‘best of British’ to international cuisine.

The team already made an appearance at Foodies Festival at Clapham Common and had a cracking time, though hopefully August will bring some more sunshine!


They also popped up at Carnaby Street Eat and Regent Street Summer Eats. Here are some snaps of the wagon in action:
