Monograph ::: A Japanese Supperclub that serving Udon Noodles


Monograph is a Japanese Supperclub that's has been getting rave reviews ever since it first launched. The chef behind it is Ugo Lo Presti, a self-taught udon connoisseur – who used to run a sushi restaurant in Italy. He moved to London a year ago and launched Monograph to showcase Japanese cuisine and in particular Udon noodles. Despite the explosion of ramen joints that have opened up in London, there are very few places you can get a great bowl of udon noodles.

Monograph is one those places.  

The design aesthetic is minimalist, the flavours are clean and fresh and the focus is on celebrating the ingredients. Every dish we had was executed flawlessly.

Like the thick strands of silky-smooth udon noodles served in a hot dashi broth full of flavour. How can I describe that broth: it was warm, comforting with the slightest hint of sweetness and a touch of acidity from the lemon slice.
