Ore no Ramen Appareya

This ramen restaurant attracts ramen connoisseurs not only from Kyoto, but from all over Japan and abroad.
The best of both worlds, the rich pork bone and seafood broth and the glutinous flat noodles intertwine to create a harmony in the mouth.
The chashu pork, soup, bamboo shoots, and noodles are served at their best, so that even ramen connoisseurs are swept away one after another by the deliciousness of the dish.

Super Tsukemen with additional chashu pork (limited to 20 servings)

The super tsukemen chashu pork addition has become a popular menu item, and you have to be the 30th person in line right after the opening to get a taste of it. It is a strange menu item that you can't get enough of the chashu pork and tsukemen, but you can easily eat it in a single bite.
Chashu pork alone is delicious, but it tastes even better when dipped in tsukemen sauce! Please enjoy the change in flavor.
The feeling of satisfaction after eating is extraordinary.

Noodle Shop Gokkoku Chicken

The sludgy soup chicken dakimasu is a super thick, meaty, cloudy chicken white soup. The new sensation of sludge soup will make you drink up even if you know it is not good for you.
It is a wonder how bird soup can become so sludgy, but it really is a new texture. The soup is surprisingly light and refreshing. You can enjoy it.
Those who prefer a thicker soup have the option of black soup.

They say akadakku is not as spicy as it looks.

The reddish color of a bowl of selected chili peppers seems not to actually be that spicy, but it is hard to find the courage to try it.
You can choose your favorite soup from chicken soup, red soup, black soup, and fish soup. The soups are all very thick and thick.
Usually when you put the noodles in the soup, they go through the gaps between the noodles and get buried in the soup, but the soup is too sloppy and the noodles arrive in a bowl with no noodle entanglement. Please try it!

We recommend the tsukemen. The tsukemen is excellent when dipped in the fluffy foamy special soup. The thick noodles catch the fluffy soup well and can be eaten in perfect harmony.
