Restaurant Review: Bone Daddies Bermondsey. Homeboy and I fancied ramen last Saturday, so we popped into the Bone Daddies Bermondsey branch. This is the development kitchen located in a railway arch on an industrial estate. If you’re looking for ramen bars in Bermondsey or Japanese food in SE16, it’s well worth visiting.
“Be the first to taste new Japanese dishes by Ross Shonhan and slurp bowls of ramen at the Bone Daddies development kitchen. You’ll find it located on an industrial estate in Bermondsey and it’s only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.” Homegirl London
Bone Daddies Bermondsey Menu
Start with a hot or cold snack. Hot snacks included Sea Salt Edamame, Sweet and Spicy Edamame, Agedashi Tofu, Wild Soft Shell Crab, Sweet Spicy Pork Ribs, Fried Chicken or Korean Fried Chicken Wings. I munched on the Sea Salt Edamame, which was very good.

Homeboy tried a cold snack of Salmon and Avocado Tostadas with chilli lime soy, shiso, pickled onion and sesame which he loved. They also had Kimchee and Chilled Tenderstem Broccoli with yuzu kosho mayo.

For mains, it’s all about the ramen, especially the 20-hour pork bone broth which all have charred or chashu pork belly with additions such as softshell crab or pork mince. Spring onions, bamboo, beansprouts, kale and Clarence Court Eggs add additional flavours and textures. They also have a chicken bone broth with pulled chicken and another with pork.
The reason we went was to try the mushroom broth with mushrooms, mushroom butter, asparagus, bok choy, garlic, thyme and Clarence Court egg. Homeboy had tofu, I didn’t because I am not a big fan. I have to say it was very good ramen, we’ve had quite a few recently and this was one of the best. This is the development kitchen, so you are likely to be tasting some new creations on your visit!
Mushroom Broth Ramen
We were full after a snack and the bowl of ramen. It was a pity because I would have loved a Mochi Ice Cream. The flavours include Mango, Yuzu, Raspberry, Coconut, Green Tea, Hazelnut, Salted Caramel and Chocolate. Snacks are £4-9.40, Meaty and Chicken Ramens are £10.70-14.20, Mushroom Broth Ramen is £10.40-10.80 and the Mochi Ice Cream is £1.60. Drinks include sake and whisky.
Bone Daddies Bermondsey Development Kitchen Interiors
This development kitchen is located inside a railway arch. It’s an industrial space with high tables and stools. Wooden pallets are fixed to the walls and woven with fairy lights. There is an open kitchen so you can see the chefs preparing your food. This place was bustling on our visit, and I can see the appeal. The ramen is delicious, and you feel as though you are in a secret location. Go with a bunch of ramen loving friends, and you’ll all be pleased!
