The second chapter of the popular ramen restaurant [Menya Kirakumu], which relocated from Aichi to its hometown Kyoto.

July 29, 2023 open

[In the summer of 2023, he relocated to Ujitawara-cho, near his hometown of Kizugawa City in Kyoto Prefecture, where he had planned to return someday. The restaurant is already attracting a long line of customers every day for the homemade noodles floating in the clear, clear soup served from the kitchen. Not a few people come all the way from Nara, Osaka, and even Aichi, their old home, to visit the restaurant after hearing the rumors. What captures the hearts of these ramen lovers is a bowl of ramen that can only be made here, utilizing local ingredients.


Shio Ramen 900 yen. The soup and salt sauce have been changed to make it more mellow, and it is now the signature dish.

The green onions were changed from white onions, the rice came from an acquaintance who is a farmer in Yamashiro-cho, Kizugawa City, and the eggs came from Joyo City. We have also added and subtracted in the soup, and I think the shijimi and other seafood elements are more harmonious than before," he says. When the bowl arrives at the table, the first thing you notice is the rich aroma of chicken broth. As you take a sip of the soup, you can feel the gentle flavor of the shijimi and kelp, as well as the richness of the niboshi and shibushi (dried sardines and dried bonito).


The smooth texture of the homemade noodles is a perfect match for the refreshing soup. We currently serve salt, soy sauce, and kiramu shiratsuyu, but in the future we would like to try tsukemen and a limited menu," he says. We can't take our eyes off Okada-san's future.
