Ramen group Ippudo to open second UK site

Japanese ramen group Ippudo is to open its second UK site, in London's Canary Wharf, this summer.

The 65-cover restaurant will be located within the 115,000 sq ft Crossrail development, and comes after the 2014 launch of the European flagship venue in the city's Central St Giles. It will also follow the opening of a Paris site in the spring.

With a "no reservations" policy, the new restaurant will serve the group's usual menu, including signature dishes such as shiromaru classic (a traditional white pork-based broth ramen), and akamaru modern (a broth seasoned with garlic oil and miso paste). There will also be vegetarian versions available, made from seaweed and mushroom broth with noodles, fried tofu and bean sprouts.

The interior design and décor will be by Myu Planning and Stiff + Trevillion Architects.

Ippudo was founded in Fukuoka, Japan, by Shigemi Kawahara in 1985. Originally an independent ramen restaurant, it now operates more than 120 sites across 13 different countries, including in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the US.
