New Ramen on the Block
Lamb Tantanmen Ramen
Say hello to the newest addition to the Ramo Ramen menu this holiday season: our very special lamb tantanmen ramen! This hearty, satisfying bowl is the perfect antidote to London’s cold winter nights, positively exuding warmth and comfort. It features a rich lamb beef broth, porcini mushrooms, niitamago (egg), pea shoots, black garlic oil, and butter. The ramen is topped off with keema (minced) lamb that’s perfectly spiced with cumin and packed with flavour, and served with a Bangladeshi lime on the side.
The Origin of the Flavours
You might know that the founders of Ramo Ramen (as well as of our sister restaurants, Bintang, Guanabana, and Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream) are Filipino, and that much of our cuisine is inflected by this heritage. But the lamb tantanmen ramen is a little different, instead borrowing heavily from the other half of their identity, namely, Bangladeshi culture, where lamb is a staple when it comes to meat consumption. As such, it is influenced by South Asian flavours—fragrant, slightly spicy, and earthy. There’s a bit of a Middle Eastern twist to it too (think of flavours reminiscent of your favourite kebab wraps), adding a nice little kick to the bowl. The broth is rich and heavy, allowing you to fully savour the taste of the lamb meat. The light, fresh vegetables round out the meat and soup and prevent it from ever becoming too dense. Overall, this dish is for those looking for a ramen that’s a radical departure from your typical East and Southeast Asian flavours, taking you instead on an unexpected, bold culinary journey that’s equally delicious.
