Our first ramen cooking day a couple of weeks ago at Ken’s house went pretty well. We spent most of the day boiling and skimming stock and invited a few friends over to try it. Since then we’ve tweaked the recipe and made it again in the kitchen at Tsuru Bishopsgate on Saturday for the Tsuru team as a true test. We went with a Tokyo-style shoyu base this time.
Trotters, chicken and vegetables were boiled and skimmed all day to create a rich, clear stock.
The style of eggs was up for debate, but we settled for old school soft(ish) boiled with a gooey centre marinated in soy and some other goodies for a few hours. We couldn’t stop eating them…salty and rich with a ganache-like yolk.
The ultimate comfort food. So satisfying. Yuki-san, a sushi chef from Tsuru Bankside (who’s been with us for four years) approved. He’s from Tokyo, so slightly biased when it comes to shoyu base…
It was a good job it was wholesome because after eating it, we headed over to the Waterpoet pub on Folgate Street with the Tsuru team and drank them out of vodka.
