Ramen was amazing, had great toppings, insane broth, but the pork could’ve been fattier for my liking. Gyoza were so damn delicious too! A Must have! Decent service too!

One of my favorite place in Kyoto. Ramen is excellent. Great for kids who can sit and eat without a backrest on the chair.

We ended up at this place after looking for a good Ramen in Kyoto. After a few Ramen places in Tokyo, this one was quite average and felt like the "buzz" is mainly driven by the fact it is highly rated on TripAdvisor. We had...More

Ippudo is one of our favorite ramen restaurants in Japan! We recently visited the Nishikikouji location for lunch, and enjoyed another great bowl of ramen, their delicious gyoza, and a cold beer! Ippudo is well-known and very popular, so be prepared to wait in line....More

Just by chance we came across Ippudo and we’re glad we did. The ramen was delicious and the service was great. Do yourself a favour and pop into Ippudo when we can.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
