Creative French-style ramen
Men-Bistro Nakano is located just an eight-minute walk from Hankyu Karasuma Station.
The restaurant’s specialty is its creative, French-style ramen, invented through a series of experiments by the shop owner, who previously managed a traditional French restaurant.
The flavor and appearance of all of the ramen dishes served at Men-Bistro Nakano are quite different from the typical tonkotsu and shoyu ramen we are all familiar with, so you may be surprised at first. But a delicious dish is a delicious dish, and there is no question that these qualify. An array of ingredients are used that are not found in your typical ramen, including tomatoes, carrots, and celery. The ramen served at Men-Bistro Nakano is sure to pleasantly shatter any stereotypes you may have about what ramen is supposed to be.
One of the great appeals of ramen has always been that its relatively short history as a cuisine has endowed it with a sense of freedom. In that respect, Men-Bistro Nakano is a cutting-edge and provocative ramen shop.
The shop has the quaint, stylish interior of a Western-style restaurant and a warm atmosphere. A relatively large number of its customers tend to be women.
