It has your usual ingredients, like eggs with a soft yolk, ramen noodles and steamed fish cake slices, but it's the broth that's a little different. It brings together a gently spiced Katsu sauce with their house broth to create a thicker texture. There's nothing else in Leeds quite like it. For the meat, they coat pork with breadcrumbs and fry it until it's golden and crispy.
