The ‘United Ramen x Nanban’ mash-up is the first in an innovative series at the Upper Street site exploring the creativity and versatility of the noodle soup through its culturally diverse history that the United Ramen brand pioneers.
Tim is preparing six special dishes to celebrate the launch of his cookbook, Nanban: Japanese Soul Food (published by Square Peg), which will be on sale at United Ramen.
Dishes include Nagasaki Chanpon Ramen and an Obi-ten style Mackerel Scotch Egg sitting alongside United Ramen favourites such as Spicy Sichuan Tantanmen and Asian BBQ spare ribs.
