A good spot. We liked that they are open pretty late. Their menu is simple. I ordered one of their ramen dishes and my husband had a rice bowl with egg and tripe on top. All of it delicious and perfectly spicy! Just a short stroll from our hotel.


We were on our way to Nara when we got hungry and found this Ramen place. Aside from the ramen being great the staffs were also very nice and can speak good english! Thankful that they advise us not to go to Nara that time cos it was already dark and we won't be able to see the dears anymore 👍
We went to Nara the next day. 😊


Spicy dry ramen! It was actually spicy, I ordered the 2 chilly spiciness which was spicy but not too much. The portions was generous with a fee toppings, there were instruction on the counter how to enjoy it. I added the kelp vinegar after had half of the noodles, and can confirm it was nice with the vinegar.
Both chefs were female and it was good to see more female chefs in Japan.


Fantastic meal, friendly host and it's child friendly! The chef guided us through the steps of eating this mix-yourself-bowl-of-awesome-noodles, it was tasty till the last drop. Our son had their pork noodle soup which he loved too, thank you for being apart of our experience in Nara 👍🏽👏🏽😄


The dry-style ramen that I got there was great, and the folks there were friendly and helpful.
