I have visited, I believe, all the ‘famous’ ramen shops in Kyoto, and many others besides. I will list up some of my favourites on this site.
Yesterday I returned to an old favourite, Ramen Kaho. It’s on Nijo-dori, next to Nijo Jusco. I like this place for lunch. The soup is ‘asari-kei’, light but with depth. They use a lot of ginger in the stock, methinks, and I like the noodles too – ‘Shina Soba’ style.
The couple who run Kaho are very friendly, and it’s inexpensive too.
