Tsukemen Enaku Reviews

Tsukemen Enaku Google Average Rating



Excellent tsukemen and rice with pork /spring onions . Noodle is of high quality with al dente texture, fits really well with the soup and it is not too salty. Toppings are memma, char siu with egg, all were of high quality.

You can opt for more noodles up to 275g with the same price

Staff is kind, friendly and really helps foreign staff while also serves local. Will revisit!


This restaurant is the top of the category Ramen dipping. The noodles are cold and the soup/sauce is hot. Mix them together and slurp them into your mouth. Three sizes of noodles portions and yet just one price! Sugoi!! The cold noodles were a bit of a surprise yet still not bad.


Fantastic Tsukemen (dipping noodles) in Kyoto.

I went with the spicy soup with M+ sized noodles.

If you have room, I highly recommend asking for the soup wari which is a broth to dilute the remaining soup.

The chef and staff were all polite and extremely helpful given my poor Japanese skills.

I fully recommend making a trip to taste it yourself.
