Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Serving as the ramen kitchen for itself and its neighbouring sister café, Andamiro Ramen Bar is a tiny outpost for the delicious soupy stuff. This is a no-frills space with raised seating at the window and counter, a couple of tables, and a succinct menu of Japanese ramen and Korean noodle bowls. It's a good place for a quick, low-cost meal without any pretence or fuss, but if you want more variety, visit the café next door. The ramen selection consists of a number of flavour bases including miso, soy, chicken and the classic pork broth which is simmered all day, resulting in a milky, velvety texture. Topped with chashu, wood ear mushrooms, menma, beansprouts and a soft boiled egg, it's clear to see why it's the most popular choice. If soup isn’t your bag, try one of the jjajangmyeon noodles with either pork or seafood in a Korean black bean sauce for that fermented umami kick. Round off your meal with an order of veggie dumplings or the fluffy chashu hirata buns, filled with supple pork belly, crisp lettuce, and tangy chilli mayo.
