Ramen is the soul food of Japan, of which the Japanese can’t live without. Ramen is also something every tourist coming to Japan wants to have a bowl of, or even a few of. And in Kyoto the competition is hard, and there are really many good ramen places. But the most famous among tourists is probably Menbaka Ichidai, more commonly known as “The Fire Ramen Restaurant.” And now that restaurant has opened a ramen school called Ramen Factory where you get to actually learn how to make ramen, starting from the noodles. You also get to make the chicken chashu yourself and mix the soup of the ramen yourself too. So you can make your very own ramen bowl, like no other. The place is located close to Tofuku-ji Temple, and the experience takes around 90-minutes. You have a staff member who tells you what to do, but they also have instructions in English. If you are in Kyoto and like ramen, this is the cooking experience for you!
All the ingredients they use are halal, and they even have a praying room for Muslims, so this is one of the most Muslim-friendly places in Kyoto!
