Mare Street

Tonkotsu Mare Street is in the heart of Hackney, and close to loads of great bars and music venues.

Pull up a stool at the long zinc-topped bar at Tonkotsu Mare Street and you’ll discover a range of more than 60 whiskies to choose from. You’ll also see most of them come from Japan; and you’ll find out just how much our bar team know their stuff – we’re happy to admit their knowledge is bordering on obsessive.

It’s not just whisky that we’re obsessed with though, since we began in 2012, we’ve put our heart and soul into every bowl of ramen – making our noodles, broths, katsu curries, gyoza and sides from scratch.
