|Outside Shiro Japanese Restaurant|
Well for one thing, I’m not even sure if the staff are Japanese. The place was very clean but no music. What a shame that there were no customers…

|Empty restaurant 😦 …|
There was a lot of choice on the menu, but I had my heart set out for any noodle dishes on the menu. So in the end I chose the shoyru chicken ramen and ebi prawns plus a calpico drink.

Next came the ramen. Ooooh. It looked good. The soup wasn’t salty, it had the right texture and flavouring. There was hardly any fat sitting on top of the soup. The chicken was tasty and fresh, and very juicy. The ramen itself tasted very good. Not over cooked or under cooked, and it was still al-dente… it was none of that instant noodle business we make at home! I would have had the whole soup if I hadn’t added some chilli oil into it… Oh well!! It was a very good price at £5.90.

I don’t know why people are avoiding this place. I actually think it’s ok despite the bad reviews they have had recently and plus it’s a refurbished, renamed restaurant. The restroom could do with some more refurbishing though. Mr Bear saw the pictures a few days later, and said, “uh, how comes you never told me about this…?!”… Well he hasn’t been in the office for a bit, he’s doing other important stuff… so next time I will take him there… eventually!
Also to note, they have a karaoke room and the meat they serve is Halal…
