Youki Description

Ranked at #1 in Hiroshima for ramen, Ramen Youki is a culinary gem that astounds with its remarkable offerings. The ramen at Ramen Youki is nothing short of exceptional and ranks among the best.
The broth, in particular, is a true revelation, leaving you craving for more. The noodles, cooked to perfection with just the right firmness, provide a delightful texture, while the bean sprouts add a crisp contrast. The pork, juicy and tender, completes the ensemble.
Despite being bustling with locals, the warm welcome from the owners and the ability to secure a table each time make it feel like home.
The affordability of the menu adds to the charm of this establishment, but it's the sense of camaraderie that truly sets it apart. The staff treats you like a friend, and if you ask the chef politely, she'll even enhance your bowl with a hint of garlic, perfectly complementing the already flavorful broth.
Despite having only one dish on the menu, the homemade soup boasts a distinct and unforgettable flavor, harmonizing seamlessly with the noodles. The fact that the restaurant is family-run and everything is made in-house speaks volumes about their commitment to quality.
Though the restaurant is located a bit away from the city center, the journey is entirely justified. The authenticity of the experience, coupled with reasonable prices, makes it a must-visit destination. Ramen Youki is not just a dining spot; it's an unforgettable culinary adventure.

Ramen Youki is a must try restaurant! Super clean, delicious and run by an amazing family that has been in Hiroshima for generations. They have 5 locations around the city. Do yourself a favour~ you won’t be disappointed!


Translated from Japanese:
It was my first visit in about 3 years.
11:15am. Temperature 35 degrees.
It was a Tuesday and I thought there wouldn't be a line in this hot weather, but as cars started coming into the parking lot, I got out of my car and lined up in front of the store 10 minutes early (lol). It's the first one (lol). It's very hot. No shade, no umbrella.
Now, when I was in Hiroshima, I often ate Chinese noodles. I feel nostalgic and can't wait to eat it soon. When the restaurant opened at
11:30, about 10 people were seated. I had been going to this restaurant for about 35 years before I transferred, and the menu used to only have Chinese noodles and Chinese noodles with garlic, but now they have added rice balls, rice, mini char siu bowls, and char siu toppings. A ticket vending machine was also installed. (The sister store also had rice balls, ticket vending machines, beer, etc.) Today, I only ordered Chinese noodles. 700 yen. A nostalgic taste. Char siu with bean sprouts and green onions has always been easy to eat without being boring. Just a simple Chinese soba. For some time now, the noodles would sometimes be powdery or have varying degrees of hardness, which is a charm, but today I think it was normal. These are thin noodles. The soup is pork bone soy sauce. For some reason, today's dish was delicious, even though I wondered if it had a little too much salt. I really like this soup. I feel like I want to eat more when I'm somewhere else. The store was also larger.


The ramen is incredibly tasty and comes at a really good price :)! The place is run by a very kind family and you feel so welcome when you step into their small shop. Make sure to stop by and try this ramen and have a great taste of Hiroshima. There's no better place to come and eat! There's a reason you'll often see a lot of people around! :)

If you talk about Hiroshima ramen, you have to try Mr. Yoki's ramen.
How many decades has it been since you came to Hiroshima?
There are 3 groups waiting. I'm one person, and the counter seat is fully open with curtains. A lady is organizing the entrance. I was called and immediately after entering, I bought Chinese noodles at the ticket vending machine. I ordered a rice ball and went to the counter seat right after it opened, so I waited for a while ! Hello! Nice to meet you! Looks delicious! Let's eat! First, I gulp down the soup. Is it a bit salty? And the noodles are straight and just the right thickness. Delicious and delicious. Open for lunch on Saturdays and Sundays.


Dang good ramen, come only with the expectation of ramen to eat and water to drink. Super friendly workers, in a very quiet neighborhood.
