Hugely popular in Japan but largely unknown here, Abura Soba is a delicious soup-less ramen dish with thicker and chewier noodles. They are served with a sesame based sauce and toppings including slow braised pork, onsen-tamago (very runny poached eggs), finely sliced yaki-nori (toasted seaweed) and menma (marinated bamboo shoots) amongst others. The dish should be vigorously stirred to mix all the flavours just before eating.
Monohon is an independent pop-up ramen bar in London. Founded by head chef Ian Wheatley who had lived and travelled extensively in Japan, it focuses on ramen and noodle as the main offering. Monohon wants customers to feel as they have stepped onto the back streets of Japan.
"We'll demonstrate how to make the dish and then invite guests to assemble their own bowl choosing their favourite toppings. Just before eating, the dish is stirred vigorously to mix everything together. Imagine the chewy noodles getting coated with the soft egg and sauce, the aromatic menma, tender pork and the crispy shallots - we love it!"
There are two sittings: 5.30-7.00pm, and 7.00-8.30pm. A limited number of tickets are available now!
Enjoy a free bowl of edamame with your BYO drink or our tea while you browse the shop for 15 minutes. We'll demonstrate the dish at 5.45/7.15pm and serve the hot noodles at 6.00/7.30pm.
Tickets are £10.

A talk by Lei Yang and Kaja Kippenberg as part of our 'ROUGE is ten' celebrations that is based on ROUGE’s event for this year’s London Design Festival.
Underlined with lively images and short videos, the first part of the talk presents the restoration and adaptation process of vintage rustic furniture from Northern China, highlighting the thoughtful, creative approach and the resourcefulness and skills of the artisans.
The second part of the talk traces Lei's visit to several small contemporary ceramics studios in China's ceramic capital, Jingdezhen, which has a more than one-thousand-year-old tradition of ceramics craftsmanship.
Incidentally, the unhurried lifestyle of the artisans who work at all these family-run businesses assumes a striking counterpoint to the Western public awareness of fast-paced mass production in China.
The talk will be followed by a complimentary drinks reception.
