I was recommended this place for vegan ramen, as my partner had been having trouble guaranteeing no fish/animal stocks used in cooking elsewhere. We both really enjoyed the meal, delicious and quality ramen served in a great little space. Treat the spice rating with some...More

Incredible ramen (thick with great texture, clearly good flour) and delicious broth. So much more flavorful and healthy than regular ramen. Add ofu (a gluten protein) and kiri tom tom (not sure about the spelling but sounds like that), a cone of the same rice...More

Mamezen serves the best soy-based ramen I have ever had! It is hidden in a quiet Neighbourhood and we had to walk a distance from Matsugasaki Station. Will definitely be back for more!

Although this restaurant was small and tucked behind a narrow alley, do not be fooled by its look, because you will miss the chance to taste the best vegetarian ramen. This tiny ramen shop is famous for its soya ramen, and my god I don't...More

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
