Here’s how things went down at the Time Out x Deliveroo Battle of the Broth

Winter had most definitely arrived by the time we reached the last Time Out x Deliveroo foodie face-off. Luckily, Battle of the Broth was the perfect chilli antidote to a chilly December Saturday. Five noodle experts were on hand to dish up warming bowls of umami-rich Asian soup. Jayde Adams was our awesome compere, ably assisted by DJ Auntie Maureen.

London faves Pho brought its Bun Bo Hue with a brisket soup and homemade chilli shrimp paste, while Tonkotsu went Turbo Charged with a chicken-and-pork broth and tonkotsu pork. Both packed a serious flavour punch. YUN responded with a sensational 300-year-old secret recipe, ‘Cross Bridge Rice Noodle’, delicately garnished with chrysanthemum petals.

Meanwhile, though, Cây Tre’s deceptively simple Original Pho of 24-hour beef marrowbone stock, with different cuts of beef, was quietly garnering the punters’ votes. For a while, it looked like it was going to be the Battle of the Broth champ, but then…

In a result that saw first and second separated by less than ten votes, Ramo Ramen carried the day and was crowned champ. Its Oxtail Kare Kare Ramen with peanut beef broth topped with pulled oxtail was a total taste smash and a worthy winner.

Anyone for a rematch in 2019?
