The best ramen I had in Japan.
The place is a Michelin guide restaurant and no wonder why.

The taste was so rich and mild at the same time. The staff was friendly and it had a great authentic atmosphere.


Best price-performance ratio during our stay.
Excellent taste. Lovely J-rock music. Came back multiple times for more. It was fun watching the stoic chef prepping.


The food was really good especially their speciality for the duck based soup. You need to try the soup. In the middle you eat you should pour in the yuzu it will change the taste differently. It was so amazing. However, the reason i gave it 4 stars, was because of the behaviour of the chef. When my wife wants to take a video while he is cooking he said cannot. But there was no sign not allowed to take a video or photo.


Translated from Japanese:

Fist Ramen is located 1-2 minutes walk from the hotel where I was staying, The Royal Park Hotel Umekoji. It is located right next to Umekoji Kyoto Nishi Station. When I submitted the location information from Tabelog to eat lunch, I found this ramen...


Translated from Japanese:

I used it for lunch. When I arrived around 1pm on a holiday, I was able to get in smoothly. Purchase meal tickets first. I ordered duck dogfish dried sardines soba. Served in about 10 minutes. As for the taste, duck and seafood...


Translated from Japanese:

It was easy to get to as it was right next to the station. There was a steady stream of customers in the store. Are the noodles all over the place? I was surprised at how smooth and smooth it felt! I can't describe the texture. Looks like ramen...
