Ramen and Japanese restaurant Bone Daddies, from Ross Shonhan, is to open a weekend ramen bar in Bermondsey, south London.
The ramen bar will operate from 12pm to 10pm on Saturdays from 5 December onwards. It comes following the success of a pop-up from one of the group's other brands, Shackfuyu, on the site, which took place while the original London Soho Shackfuyu location was closed for renovation. The latter reopens today.
During the week, the Bermondsey location currently operates as a test kitchen for the group as a whole, but on Saturdays it will now serve a smaller version of Bone Daddies' wider menu, to capitalise on the foodie atmosphere of the Bermondsey area at the weekends, which includes the Maltby Street market on Saturdays and Sundays.
There will also be a bar serving tequila mixes to create margaritas with a Japanese twist, plus Asahi beer, Bone Daddies' own cider, whisky and sake.
Shonhan - who previously worked at restaurants including Zuma, Roka, and Nobu - first opened Bone Daddies in 2012, followed by Flesh & Buns in Covent Garden in 2013, and another Bone Daddies in High Street Kensington.
There is now also a pop-up-turned-permanent Shackfuyu site in Soho, and the next Bone Daddies is expected to open in Old Street in February 2016.
