Manchester’s Japanese restaurant Shoryu Ramen is going green for National Vegetarian Week, offering a new veggie-friendly menu for one week only.
From 13 to 19 May, Shoryu Ramen, based in Piccadilly Gardens, will be offering an exclusive vegetarian set menu, as well as brand new dishes including a new veggie alternative to their popular Karaka Tan Tan ramen. For a limited time only, diners can enjoy an authentic three-course menu for just £22 to include Shoryu Ramen’s famous soft buns and ramen.
Embracing National Vegetarian Week, Shoryu Ramen is turning its much-loved Shoryu Bun green. Coloured by matcha green tea, the bun comes with a range of fillings to choose from, including Atsuage Fried Tofu with Hirata vegetable sauce, or Grilled Halloumi with avocado and Japanese mayo.
Main courses include the new Quorn Karaka Tan Tan ramen, a rich and spicy dish with Quorn mince marinated in white miso, garlic and chiu chow, vegan soy milk and shiitake broth topped with a Japanese poached egg and chilli oil. The vegan option on offer is the classic White Natural Ramen, made using a unique tonyu soy milk, miso, konbu and shiitake broth, astuage fried tofu, kikurage mushrooms, menma bamboo shoots, spring onion and nori seaweed.
For desert, Shoryu Ramen is offering Mochi Ice Cream with a choice of flavours from Matcha, Yuzu and vegan chocolate.
And there are plenty of rinks on the menu too. Alongside the Japanese Royal Warrant brewery Gekkeikan’s Kobai Plum Wine, a light and fruity Strawberry Calpico, or brand new Kombucha drinks from Remedy Drinks, there are a series of cocktails including Ginger and Lemongrass Martini; Basil Tropical Haru; Murasaki no Margarita; and Yuzu Hana.
