Went to this place using Tripadvisor's reviews. Noticed that the burnt miso soup has been spoken of repeatedly, so even though we're not big fans of soups in general, we had to order it. My. God. This miso soup turned to be one of the greatest courses I've ever experienced in my entire life, the surprise was immense, Me &... More

Went with my wife based on the reviews here. Was not disappointed. Do not get discouraged by the location, it was the only restaurant on the street that was open at the time we went (9pm). But when you get there, you are greeted by friendly staff and the service is fast and efficient. We had the burnt miso Ramen.... More

It is simply the best meal I had in my trip in Japan so far . I had the burnt miso ramen and before eating it, I was suspicious about the fact that it's burnt but it gives so much taste to the meal. You have to try eat!

We went here specifically for the ramen and while others in my party triesd more taditional flavors I had the burnt miso ramen and remember the flavor very sharply. It is unlike any sauce you will ever have. I am not a fan of noodles but I ate my entire bowl just to slurp up that sauce. Go and your... More

This place was one of the recommended restaurants to try in Kyoto. We were curious as to how a black ramen would have tasted like. And wow....we were pleasantly surprised! It was delicious! The miso one was the one with better taste compared to the other one. I believe the soup was black because they burnt it. The location though,... More

While the wait can be long, the food is worth it. Their burnt ramen is an excellent twist on traditional ramen flavours and the gyoza were full of flavour - the best gyoza we ate in Kyoto. A great way to eat good ramen with a restaurant atmosphere rather than the quick feed experience.

Staying in Shinkyogoku Shopping District

Neighborhood Profile
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. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
