Monohon Ramen Pop ups A new Japanese ramen bar 'Monohon', founded by head chef Ian Wheatley, opens its doors to a series of pop ups in Hackney.

Monohon Ramen

The pop ups are currently organized in the space of Toconoco, a Japanese café by Regent's Canal in Haggerston. Chef Ian will be serving up two varieties of tonkotsu (pork-bone) ramen: shio (salt) and shoyu (soya sauce). Unlike western soups, tonkotsu is cooked at a rolling boil for many hours to emulsify fat into the soup. The result is a whiter colour and a rich, creamy texture. To it he adds the Monohon signature tare (secret seasoning). The fine balance between the tare and the broth makes a classic tonkotsu ramen.

The in-house made noodles are then added to the boiling soup and served with toppings of chashu (braised pork slices), wood-ear mushrooms, bean sprouts and spring onions. Customers are encouraged to dig in as soon as it is served to retain the bite of the noodles, hence the slurp!

There are also additional toppings to purchase such as Ajitsuke Tamago (marinated soft boiled egg), beni-shoga (pickled ginger) or have the complete works of 4 extra toppings, zenbu-nose, as they say in Japanese. In addition to the ramen, a £10 ticket also includes a side dish of edamame and customers are welcomed to bring their own bottle.

The dates of the events are announced via Monohon's website and social media. The event is preticketed and tickets can be purchased via http://www.edibleexperiences.com/p/1476162054/Monohon-Ramen

Monohon Ramen

With autumn approaching, hearty dishes such as ramen become increasing popular. In future pop-ups, Monohon plans to offer Miso Ramen, Tsukemen (dipping ramen) and Abura Soba (a soup-less ramen).

About us

Monohon is an independent ramen bar in London, United Kingdom. Founded by head chef Ian Wheatley who had lived and travelled extensively in Japan, it focuses on ramen and noodle as the main offering. Emulating Japan's B-Q-Gurume scene (Japanese soul food), Monohon aims to serve classical Japanese ramen with authenticity, service and value. Starting from the product to the atmosphere, Monohon wants customers to feel as they have stepped onto the back streets of Japan. Currently operating as a pop up, Monohon hopes to find a suitable location soon to bring the concept to life.
