I’ve been to Bone Daddies before in early 2020 and they have been known for introducing a peculiar but exceptional ramen every month. For August, it was Abu Ramen and October’s option was the Prince of Darkness which was tried at the end of the month and could be found at every Bone Daddies ramen bar across London. Note: There are trace elements of nuts within the special marinade in the rib meat of the dish so it’s not a nut friendly ramen.
Prince of Darkness was originally started during Halloween 2020, and is back on the menu in collaboration with Dalston’s the Ribman. Judas is Scary Hot is one of two Ribman sauces that is an optional chilli sauce to add to your ramen if you want more spiciness. And the ramen? The ramen has homemade pork broth with chilli grazed pork chashu and Rib Man rib meat along with fried chillies, marinated bamboo, bean sprouts and spring onion. It’s literally a dream to have this ramen but I wish it was more frequent to have for longer.
The taste is ideal for any spicy food connoisseur looking for something for a winter day. The noodles were thin and held the the broth really well. The pork slices were thin and well marinated, every bite was rich that was paid well with the broth. Speaking of broth, it’s a perfect consistency with a dark colour packed into the flavour, and an earthy taste to the spice that instantly warms your belly. It’s why the Judas is Scary Hot sauce being paired with the this ramen makes it a fiery heaven for anyone eating it.
If Bone Daddies reads this, I hope they bring it back but without the nutty marinade sauce on the meat and chashu if possible. And coming up for November, it’s the Korean Army Ramen which looks promising for ramen enthusiasts to try!
