Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Noodle soups like ramen and pho might just be the ultimate thing to eat. In the right hands, these are broths so alchemically delicious they have the power to transform anything that bathes in them – meat, fish, veg, eggs – into flavour-packed masterpieces, and Instagram sensations-inwaiting.
London has been noodle-mad for a good few years now; what started as a bit of a foodie novelty trend has become a fully fledged revolution, with acknowledged souperstars jealously guarding their recipe secrets as they simmer their broths under cover of darkness for 12, 18, even 24 hours.
Now Time Out and Deliveroo are bringing together a collection of noodle-soup masters (all of which are exclusively available through Deliveroo) to fight it out. The Battle of the Broth will establish, once and for all, who is the soup king of London. This is basically the Large Hadron Collider of umami, and the perfect thing to eat as Christmas creeps up: put some chilli in your chilly!
Over two hours, you’ll get to sample bowls from all the contenders, then vote for your favourite. There will be beers from the ace Fourpure Brewing Co to keep everyone refreshed and tunes to keep it all jumping. It will be fun, furious and it’ll feature some of the best noodle soup in town. People, this is the Souper Bowl!
