Following the huge success of their Hatsune Miku collab last Autumn, Ramen Yokocho has come up with another hitting collaboration.

 

This time you’ll be teleported to Japan to meet your favourite characters from S.E.E.S. (Specialised Extracurricular Execution Squad), summon your inner spirit and uncover the secrets of the Dark Hour.

 

The game will be released on 2 February 2024, but you can get an early taste of the game from 16 January at Ramen Yokocho’s Panton Street and Heddon Street locations.

The collab features three different character-inspired set menus:

  • The Protagonist
  • Mitsuru Kirijo
  • Aigis

 

Each set menu contains a character-inspired main, a drink and a dessert.

 

Highlights of the menus:

 

 ‘Gourmet King Ramen’ is based on the main character, The Protagonist. It’s a 12hrs tonkotsu based pork broth ramen with garlic oil and fried garlic, topped with menma bamboo shoots, BBQ pork belly, spring onion, nitamago egg, kikurage mushrooms, wakame and nori seaweed.

The vegan main dish is called ‘Execution Noodles’ and inspired by Mitsuru Kirijo. This is a 1hr miso-based vegetable broth with hosomen thin and straight noodles, topped with spicy piri piri sauce, ganmo tofu, menma bamboo shoots, kikurage mushrooms, tenderstem broccoli and nori seaweed.

 

Each drink’s colour matches with the character they’re inspired by.  The Protagonist’s ‘Balm of Life’ is a Blue Melon Soda, served with raspberry syrup, coconut jelly and maraschino cherry.

Aigis’ ‘Fountain Dew’ drink is a yellow Melon Soda served with lemon syrup, coconut jelly and maraschino cherry.

We chose the vegan Mitsuru Kirijo Set Menu, so we had the ‘Marin Karin Parfait’ as a dessert. It’s a vegan ice cream parfait with anko (sweet red bean paste) garnished with maraschino cherry.

 

The Protagonist-inspired dessert is called ‘Sweet, Sweet Thanatos’ and is super Instagrammable.  It’s a coffin-shaped chocolate mochi brownie served with a scoop of matcha ice cream and strawberry sauce.

If you order one of the set menus, you can order another two character-inspired dishes with discount.

 

Inspired by Akihiko Sanada, ‘Mega Protein Bowl’ is a bowl of deep-fried ebi katsu served on Japanese rice with nori seaweed, vegetables and topped with tonkatsu sauce and Japanese mayo.

 

‘Weird Takoyaki’ is six deep-fried octopus balls topped with Takoyaki brown sauce, Japanese mayo, bonito flakes, aonori seaweed and red ginger. This one is inspired by The Protagonist’s cute classmate, Yukari Takeba.
