‘Cult favourite’ South London restaurant announces makeover and expanded menu

‘Cult favourite’ Supa Ya Ramen in Peckham is now formally known as Supa Ya. The restaurant’s makeover is inspired by the izakaya bars of Japan where snacks and drinks are the focus.

Head chef Luke Findlay’s “bold” flavour combinations continue to be ‘traditionally inauthentic’ with a British influence. The menu features plates to share and three puddings to balance out the umami hit.

The venue’s “bouncy, satisfying” noodles are confirmed to be remaining on the menu. The mazesoba dishes are brothless bowls; more suited to the current weather. Italian flavours feature in the slow-roasted tomato mazesoba with burrata, roasted tomatoes, confit garlic oil and basil.

Also being added to the menu are pulled short rib mazesoba, soft egg, supa ya pickles, hash browns, caramelised onions, green onion and kewpie mayo. A lighter option is the Chilled tofu and sesame sauce noodles with chilli crisp, cucumber, beansprouts, smoked hazelnuts.

Vegetarians are also catered to with tempura vegetables and tomato ponzu. Supa Ya’s signature snack, the Tofu whip comes with asparagus, green goddess dressing and naan for mopping. Cucumber tataki comes alongside flat peach and fried breadcrumbs.

Other dishes include beef tartare with spicy sesame sauce, apple and fried potatoes. Glazed pork cheek comes with caramelised apple wasabi puree, pickled daikon and shiso leaves to use as makeshift tacos. An ode to the site’s former beloved restaurant, Taco Queen.

In terms of desserts, the venue offers yuzu sorbet as the “ultimate end to a meal on a roasting hot day”. Chilled matcha cheesecake comes with seasonal fresh cherries, and mochi made with the classic Biscoff biscuits also feature. According to the owners, the new menu will evolve with the seasons.
