Shoryu, new ramen "brasserie" in Piccadilly [London]

Mr Foodie 94 and I stood in line for about 15 minutes to score lunch for 50% off at the soft launch of Shoryu, the new ramen "brasserie" at 9 Regent St. It's affiliated with Japan Centre in some way. It specializes in tonkotsu, or ramen in a whitish pork-bone broth. I had yuzu tonkotsu, he had wasabi; both were tasty, with rich stocks brightened by the flavours we'd chosen, delicious pork, nori, beanspouts, & beni-shoga (red pickled ginger). I would have liked some gyoza to go with, but I think they're keeping a pared-down lunch menu; dinner diners will have more options. I haven't tried Bone Daddies yet, but I have tried Ittenbari nearby, which I also like for the miso ramen and lovely gyoza. Ramen renaissance - now we need some soba places like Soba-ya and Cocoron in NYC!
