Story & Recommendation
Classic tonkotsu ramen that maintains a traditional taste
Daichu is a ramen restaurant right next to Kintetsu Momoyamagoryomae, which is about a 10-minute train ride from Kyoto Station. The specialty at Daichu is the tonkotsu-shoyu (pork bone and soy sauce) ramen made with a chicken broth base. At a time where there are so many new restaurants offering unique ramens with unusual ingredients, Daichu's ramen maintains a classic tonkotsu ramen taste that is surprisingly simple. Incidentally, Daichu ramen has two types of soup (the “original” tonkotsu and the “new” tonkotsu seafood) from which to choose. Although both are delicious, we highly recommend the “original” if it's your first time. Having been in business for 20 years, the restaurant's interior and furnishings are quite old, however, the fact that everything has been used with great care is clearly visible. If you are interested in Japan's good old-fashioned ramen restaurants, this is the place for you.
