What makes the perfect japanese bowl of soup? For me it takes a weighty voluptuous noodle, not to soft and not too hard, a delicious flavoursome broth, rich and deep yet light and joyful. Add to this loads of fresh seafood, vegetables and big dose of loving attention to presentation and you get the picture. That’s why I LOVE Yumenoki.
A tiny family run japanese restaurant on the Fulham Rd, each dish at Yumenoki is lovingly crafted and arrives at the table steaming hot and reminds you of why japanese food is so special. Forget Yo Sushi trains, forget Itsu modern presentation. They can’t offer the heart and soul of a family restaurant, a secret broth recipe and a loyal following in the know. Order the Nabeyaki Udon or the tempura Udon, and every cell of your body will thank you for the soulful nutrition in every slurp. Each weighty udon noodle is a joy unto itself.
Agedashi Tofu: fluffy and crispy skinned tofu in a sea of delicious light broth.
