Tsukemen with fragrant seafood flavors and a firm texture
Takamatsu is a Tsukemen and Ramen restaurant located a 5-minute walk from Hankyu Karasuma Station. This restaurant has two specialties, Tsukemen with strong seafood and soy sauce flavors, and Ramen with a gentle niboshi (dried sardine) aroma.
“Tsukemen” is essentially a type of Ramen in which the noodles and tsukejiru (dipping soup) are kept separate, and the noodles are dipped in the soup before eating, similar to zarusoba. The soup (tsukejiru) is often more strongly flavored than regular ramen.
The interior has a neat and tidy feel like a traditional Japanese restaurant, with a relaxing atmosphere. This ramen restaurant is located in Kyoto’s business district, so it is full of local office workers on weekday afternoons.
