Probably the best ramen I have ever had!
The duck ramen features special ducks from Kishu and taste slightly smoked.
Nothing to add.

- Daigo Sakai

The dining room designed by the country’s top sukiya-zukuri architect Maeda Shinji is breathtaking and stunningly beautiful.

This is one of the sushi places where the Chef gives a felling as if you were in a church during service. Hushed voices, stern observation from the Master himself. As the paying customer you asked yourself... More

7

Scruffy place, far in the north of Kyoto but to give credit air-conditioned.
Wonderful Ramen topped with a secret powder to cut through the fat.
Great stuff.

5

Old fashioned asador in the basque country, halfway in between San Sebastian and Pamplona.
A all female staff, including the owner, produce some very simple but stunning dishes.
The chuleton was slightly more than 1.5kg and cooked to perfection.
