Of the various types of ramen broth available, my favourite is the Hakata/Kyushu style made using pork bones. Therefore, the first place I tried at the Kyoto Ramen Koji floor was Hakata Ikkousha. The place is quite tiny (as are the rest of the ramen places on the same floor), seating about 15 people at a time only.
At peak times there can be a queue, but it moves moderately quickly (people slurp down their ramen and go). You order via a vending machine out front and wait at the seats provided (same as the other places).
The ramen noodles here are the thinner variety, perfectly cooked with a touch of springiness that I like (some are more chewy). The broth is tasty and nicely balanced, flavourful without being too salty. 4 thinly sliced pieces of pork are provided, which are very tender, together with a whole ajitama egg (normally other places cut it into 2 halves).
Oh, the fried rice and fried chicken here are also very good!
