Hip and quirky Maki & Ramen is a great spot for catching up with pals. Have a giggle while scanning the walls – they’re covered in colourful post-it notes sharing previous diners’ secrets, hopes and dreams – then start the food off with maki, a green dragon roll filled with prawn tempura and avocado, which is beautifully presented and delightfully fresh. The chicken yakatori is warming with a good punch of chilli and pairs nicely with sticky rice and crunchy broccoli on the side. If it’s a bit nippy, cool down with aloe vera water or green tea by your side. Alternatively, give the chef’s ‘burnt soyu’ a whirl: a deeply savoury, generous bowl of ramen with all sorts of accompaniments crammed into the bowl. Service is equally generous in this understated wee joint.
