No such thing as a free lunch? Well, how about some free Japanese food at a new restaurant in Ealing? Five lucky people can pick up prizes of a tasty, free ramen for you and a friend.
We have teamed-up with Tonkotsu, the new eaterie on the Ealing Broadway side of Dickens Yard, for a competition.
If you have not been to one before, Tonkotsu describes itself as a modern Japanese ramen bar with a laid-back vibe, and it has become well-known for the ramen with homemade noodles and broths it serves, alongside its selection of gyoza, korokke, chicken wings and karaage, sake, cocktails and craft beer. Ealing is the eleventh branch of Tonkotsu in London alone.
Should ramen be new to you, too, it is a hearty noodle soup with a selection of tasty toppings. It is served in a bowl and nearly every region in Japan has its own variation of ramen.
Tonkotsu serves its ramens in two sizes – one ideal for lunch, or for when you have a smaller appetite; and the other for a larger meal.
Trieu Luu, general manager of Tonkotsu Ealing, said: “We’re very excited to have opened in Ealing. It’s great to be welcomed into such a close-knit community
“Using noodle-making machines imported from Japan, we make three different types of fresh ramen noodle ourselves – Tokyo, Tsukemen and Tonkotsu. Each has unique characteristics, developed to complement our different stocks. Speaking of our stocks, our chefs put pot to stove and start making the day’s signature stock each morning – from scratch. We put our heart and soul into making sure every bowl of ramen that leaves our kitchen arrives on your table ready to rock your world.”
How to enter the competition
