Top 3 Asian Noodle Houses in London
Noodle dishes are a staple in many Asian countries, and this is something that London has taken notice of, especially in the past decade or two. Many Asian restaurants have sprung up in London over the last couple of years, most of them featuring both authentic dishes and a fusion of ingredients from both the East and the West, to better suit the palate of their customers.
Here are top three recommendations for the best noodle restaurants in London that you can try on your next Asian food binge:
- Ippudo. The ramen craze has taken the world by storm, and London is no exception. With over 100 restaurants all over the globe, it’s no surprise why this ramen restaurant is popular to both its Japanese and non-Japanese customers. Its bestseller, the Shiromaru Hakata Classic, sells for only £10, and is filled with melt-in-your-mouth pork loin chasu, mixed in with tasty sesame kikurage mushrooms, bean sprouts, and spring onions. Located at St. Giles High Street, Ippudo is only thirty minutes away from popular aparthotels, like the Presidential Apartments London, making it a fun and convenient go-to whenever you need a quick Japanese food fix.
- Pho & Bun. Want something Vietnamese? Visit Pho & Bun between Soho and Chinatown and treat yourself to an array of authentic Vietnamese dishes, as well as their original concoctions. Try a bowl of their delicious Bo Tai (Rare Sliced Beef) Pho Noodle Soup for £9.50 and pair this with one of their famous steamed bao burgers for as low as £7.50. Wash these down with authentic Jasmine or Green tea to complete your Vietnamese dining experience. Because it is proximity to numerous West End theatres, like the Queen’s Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue and Prince Edward Theatre in Old Compton Street, Pho & Bun is the perfect venue for a comforting dinner after watching a musical or full-length play.
- Busaba Eathai. With seven branches open all over London, Busaba Eathai is very easy to find, whether you’re staying in a residential home or one of the city’s famous Aparthotels London. Residents and tourists alike love this Thai restaurant’s Tom yam goong, available at £10.95, as well as its selection of tasty pad Thai dishes, with prices starting at £8.95. But don’t stop there! Busaba Eathai also offers delectable desserts, such as sticky black rice pudding and warm banana fritters served with delicious coconut ice cream — the perfect ender to a filling and heartwarming Asian meal.
