We were on the way to see The Banshees of Inishfree at the pictures in the new (-ish) development in Finsbury Park and with one of us doing Japanese lessons Tonkotsu seems to be a logical manoeuvre.
Trade wasn’t brisk on a Saturday teatime but the welcome was friendly and we got a table near the window. The menu is brief – mostly different shades of ramen with some sides. I had a chilli chicken ramen and remembered for once to ask them to remove the egg. On the side we had some steamed edamame. The ramen was good though not as powerful a broth as Shoryu and came with fewer vegetables. So it was wise to get the beans on the go. A pint of Kirin helped to wash it down. At around 20 quid a head it wasn’t bad value and a good pre-cinema option but not quite as good as Dotori on the scuzzier side of the station.
Banshees was as good as expected with Farrell’s eyebrows putting in a hell of a shift on the acting front.
