Japan 103 – Gogyo Ramen @ Kyoto

Our 1st brunch in Japan was Ramen of course! I found this ramen shop on Tripadvisor and we walked there from our hotel. The restaurant is located near the Nishiki Market which we did a lot of snacking and shopping afterwards. But we were very hungry then so food was our priority. Armed with 3G internet and Google Map, we quickly found the restaurant located in an alley off Nishiki Market. It was slightly after lunch hour so the place was quiet. English menu was available so ordering was easy. This restaurant is famous for its burnt ramen/ roasted ramen, of which the broth is cooked to 300 degrees which gives it an slight earthy smokey/ burnt taste. It’s totally different from what we had before and we were glad we got to try something different in Japan. My Roasted Miso Ramen (¥850) was the strongest flavour of all and it took me a while to get used to it. Once you got over the burnt taste in the broth, you would start to enjoy the ramen in its thick and intense flavour, although it’s a tad on the oily side. For additional ¥200, we added the pork gyoza and it’s crispy on the outside with juicy pork filling from the inside. With that we kicked started our eating spree in Japan for the next 10 days…
