This is the best food I've had in Japan so far. The miso ramen with ground pork tastes just like heaven!

Now this restaurant is my all-time favorite ramen joint, but they don't serve my favorite ramen every day. I really, really, really love their mazesoba, which is a bit spicy, but they also give you two kinds of vinegar so that you can make it...More

This was our first meal in Japan and I'm kind of thinking we've already peaked...not sure how food could get much better than what they're serving up at this place. We showed up at about 10 to 6 and we were third in line. After...More

Dipping ramen! So very very good!!!! I can see why this place has won so many awards! They open for dinner at 6pm and serve until they run out. There's a line down the block sometimes!

If you want great, no-frills ramen then this is a must eat. There are only 11 seats so get there early and be prepared for a semi-self-serve experience. Review the menu while waiting in line and pick your meal because upon entering you put your...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
