【Charred flavor】 Gogyo Ramen 【Nishiki Food Market】


Hi! Welcome to Machi's Taxi Restaurant Guide.

Today, I would like to introduce you to a ramen restaurant near the Nishiki Food Market.

This restaurant is located on the west side of yanaginobanba, north of nishiki.


This ramen place is run by the "Chikara-no-minamoto" group, which also manages famous ramen chain "Ippudo".

Although they have many branches of "Ippudo" in cities such as in NY, Singapore, and Hong Kong, there are only 5 restaurants with the name "Gogyo", three in Tokyo, one in Kyoto, and the other is in Fukuoka.
The name "Gogyo" literally means "five lines", a reference to these five restaurants in Japan. So with this name, it's my guess that the number of "Gogyo" restaurants will not be increasing any more.

This "Gogyo" boasts of their unique "charred-flavor" ramen. The charred flavor stimulates your appetite.
Although they have regular ramen as well, I recommend that you order "Charred soy sauce ramen", or "Miso-charred ramen".

Myself being Japanese, I'm assuming that every Japanese loves the savoriness of charred soy sauce and charred miso.


This time, I ordered " Miso-charred  ramen".
After waiting only a few minutes, I suddenly saw a big flame erupt in the kitchen. This is what they use to create the charred flavor.




" Miso-charred  Ramen" -price 850 JPY


Because of the black substance, it may not look really nice to you. Once you try it, however, you'll realize that its taste is fabulous.

In and around The Nishiki Food Market, there are many great places to eat.
Definitely, this restaurant can be listed as one of your choices!


If you show this picture to your taxi driver in Kyoto, he’ll have no trouble taking you to this diner.


Taxi fare will be:
1040JPY from Kyoto station,
1040JPY from the Kiyomizu temple.
The above prices are just my approximate guess.
