Tsukemen Kirari Description

Located in Kyoto, Tsukemen Kirari is a hidden gem that specializes in tsukemen, a type of ramen where the noodles are served separately from the broth. This unique style of ramen allows diners to fully appreciate the rich and flavorful broth, which is made from a blend of carefully selected ingredients and simmered for hours to achieve the perfect balance of flavors.

What sets Tsukemen Kirari apart from other ramen shops is their commitment to quality and attention to detail. The noodles are made in-house using a traditional recipe, resulting in a firm and chewy texture that pairs perfectly with the thick and savory broth. Each bowl of tsukemen is served with a generous portion of tender chashu pork, marinated bamboo shoots, and a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg, creating a symphony of flavors and textures.

The restaurant itself is cozy and inviting, with a minimalist decor that allows the focus to be on the food. The friendly and attentive staff are always ready to assist diners in navigating the menu and provide recommendations based on individual preferences. Whether you're a ramen aficionado or a first-time tsukemen eater, Tsukemen Kirari is a must-visit destination for a truly unforgettable dining experience.

Great Ramen. We accidentally came here looking for food and saw this as a place that was open. It had excellent service and they helped us translate and shared English instructions to eat Tsukemen in Kiari style. LOVED it


So oishiiiii. Had the secret ebi tsukemen which was delicious. Only 15 of these are made each day so make sure to queue early. Had all the toppings cos I'm a fat boy. Presentation is impeccable and you wish you could eat it forever kind of like crack in a noodly form🤗 price is slightly higher than average but worth it for the quality.


Very satisfying tsukemen! Noodles of the tsukemen are only a bit thinner than udon. They are chewy and delicious! Sauce of the tsukemen probably is based on pork bones, fish bones, smoke-dried fish, and some more ingredients that I can't figure out. Its tasted thick but not very heavy. Triple note - one MUST try their fruity vinegar - the vinegar just bring the sauce to another level!
