Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe Description

Located in Kyoto, Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe is a must-visit restaurant for lovers of Japanese cuisine. Specializing in tsuke-men, a type of ramen dish where the noodles are served separately and dipped into a flavorful broth, this restaurant offers a unique and delicious dining experience.

What sets Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe apart from other dining establishments is their attention to detail and commitment to quality. The broth is rich and savory, made with a blend of carefully selected ingredients that have been simmered for hours to achieve the perfect balance of flavors. The noodles are thick and chewy, providing a satisfying texture that pairs perfectly with the broth.

One of the standout menu items at Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe is their signature tsuke-men dish. The noodles are served cold, allowing them to retain their firmness and absorb the flavors of the broth when dipped. The broth itself is packed with umami, with hints of soy sauce, garlic, and pork. Topped with tender slices of chashu (braised pork), green onions, and a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg, this dish is a true delight for the senses.

The restaurant's decor is simple and elegant, with wooden furnishings and traditional Japanese accents. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, making it the perfect place to enjoy a satisfying meal with friends or family. Whether you're a ramen enthusiast or simply looking to try something new, Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe is a culinary gem that should not be missed.

Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe Reviews

Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe Google Average Rating



On our first day to Kyoto, we were treated with wonderful Tsukemen at Kyoto Watanabe. Tsukemen is a ramen dish in Japanese cuisine consisting of noodles that are eaten after being dipped in a separate bowl of soup or broth. We were recommended by a Hotel Rhino receptionist to come to this restaurant. We were delighted with what we found. The staff spoke very good English, the noodles were exceptional, the broths we have tried were fish, spicy pork and prawn were all wonderful. Thank you very much Tsukemen Kyoto Watanabe for a wonderful lunch, warm welcome and help. We will be back visiting you again.


So grateful to have found this place. My partner and I are vegetarian and we've struggled at times to find food without meet.
While this place isn't a vegetarian restaurant, the owner was so helpful and accommodating - he showed us how to use the ticket machine (we're new here 😅) and we were able to order a delicious soy broth with noodles and boiled egg. Exactly what we needed.
In all likelihood we will be back tomorrow for dinner again!
Thank you so much!


Delicious tsukemen.
The price is what I would consider slightly above average, around 900-1100円 but really good flavours.
