Sixteen or "Ra Ra Ramen"

It's not all work, work, work.  Or is it?  Sadly for me it has been this summer, so consequently my social life has taken a bit of a nose dive of late.  So imagine my excitement at the novelty of a mid-week date night!  In Soho of all places which is properly out in London, yeah baby!

Where did we go?  Well, since I got back from Japan several years ago, I've often lamented the lack of authentic and tasty ramen places in London, so when I heard about Tonkotsu on Dean Street I immediately told my boyfriend that we MUST GO THERE and check it out.  I wasn't disappointed, it was OISHII.  Tonkotsu ramen is pork belly on noodles in soup, sounds hideous, tastes fantastic.  Trust me.  It even had an egg, as it should.  Mmmn... as I write this with a mild hangover I could devour another bowl.

I gave my cute-as My Little Pony shirt another outing for the occasion:

Shirt: Primark (Size 8)
Bordeaux Leigh Jeans: Topshop Petite (Size 10)
Boots: Topshop (Size 3)

And of course my most very favourite pleather biker:

It was a very bright day, excuse the shadowy face
 Jacket: Topshop Petite (Size 8)

If you want to properly appreciate the delightful pony print of the shirt, take a look at Post Ten.  In the meantime, check out my nails, a very girly 'I Think in Pink' by OPI:

Whilst I do like pink, I wouldn't say I think in it.  Is that even possible?
I fully intended to take a photo of my tonkotsu ramen but when it arrived all thought of photos immediately flew out of the window as it looked and smelled so amazing.  I've therefore pilfered this photo from elsewhere, so you can see what I'm going on about:

Not dissimilar to what I ate.  Drool.
I did manage to take one photo whilst out and about that evening.  Here I am at the Dean Street Townhouse with a borrowed espresso martini... 'cos it's visually more interesting than the glass of wine I was actually drinking:
