Kombu and noodles Kiichi

A long-established kelp specialty ramen shop [Konbu and Men Kiichi] opens in Nishijin

May 01, 2023 open

A long-established store [Itsutsuji no Konbu] that has been in business for over 120 years has started a new endeavor. A restaurant has been opened on the second floor of the store to promote the appeal of kelp. In a stylish space with gray walls and a wooden counter, you can enjoy course-style konbu ramen.

Kombu and Noodles Kiichi's Kombu Ramen

Konbu ramen 1152 yen. The beautiful, clear soup is made by soaking true kelp, Rausu kelp, and Rishiri kelp in water for half a day, then pasteurizing them just before serving. It is refreshing and has a condensed taste. To enjoy kombu ramen, you must purchase at least one product at [Itsuji no Konbu] on the 1st floor.

First, we tried comparing cold brews of Makonbu, Rausu Kombu, and Rishiri Kombu in wine glasses, and then Oboro Kombu, which the representative Mr. Kuze shaved in front of us, appeared. Everyone will be surprised at how moist and soft it melts in your mouth. Enjoy the main course, konbu ramen, while enjoying the elegant aroma of the dashi stock. ``In the future, I hope to be able to offer oden made with kelp soup stock,'' Kuze says.
