No longer vegan/vege friendly - Edit

I visited this ramen shop in 2015 and loved it. It was the first time I’d had a vege ramen that looked as rich as my partner’s meat based ones. I was looking forward to re-visiting it this time around but was disappointed to find a sign saying they were no longer selling their vege/vegan options. Their loss but it also seems to have got wildly popular in three years so at least you won’t have to wait over an hour for your noodles.

Veggie Ramen - Edit

Small place, bit longer wait time. Ramen was good, not stellar but solid. Staff spoke English but apparently it was an impossibility for them to believe I’d share my table to make it faster for people after me...

Still, solid ramen and they made no fuss about making it vegetarian.

Not sure if the wait was worth it but good food anyway - Edit

Ordered: Kelp stock vegan ramen. Got some kelp stock ramen topped with tempura pumpkin, spring onion, yuba, beansprouts, carrot, broccoli, and possibly perilla leaf?

THIS PLACE. I made an account just to review this place.
So I arrived at 1:26. Was told there would be a 31 minute wait. Thought “31 mins isn’t too bad” so took ticket and waited. Didn’t get inside the restaurant until 2:40 (and didn’t order until 3 or so, since some Japanese restaurants require you to wait a little before they seat you). Basically, I waited a LONG TIME. Thought about giving up at the 40 minute mark but saw that this place was in the Tripadvisor top 20 recommended spots for 2016, so persisted out of curiosity.
An hour into my wait, they sold out of stock and had to close until the dinner shift started at 5. (People who’d already gotten a waiting ticket were allowed to come in though). This gave me an incentive to keep waiting — if they sold out of stock, people must think this place is pretty good right?

This place is pretty small and only seats around 15 people. On the day I was there, there were only 2 people working - a chef and a server who was helping the chef from time to time.

Two vegan ramen options, either a soy milk based broth or a kelp based broth. Allergens are also listed on the menu in the form of little pictures under each entry.
NOTE: the vegan ramens are not vegan by default. You need to ask to remove the soft-boiled eggs. The staff speak good English though and are happy to alter.

Had soy milk ramen from Mumokuteki (also in Nishiki Market) the previous night so went for the kelp one. Food was yum. Everything was cooked to the perfect texture. The broth was umami and had a bit of sesame oil added for extra dimension — light compared to the soy milk based ramen I had the previous night. Noodles were nice and sproingy - a sign of authentic ramen.

Minus one star for the long wait, but otherwise great!

Pros: Freshly cooked in front of you, Easy to find , Allergens clearly listed on menu

Cons: LONG WAIT TIME! I realise this was probably a , one-off occurrence but it definitely left an , impression on me!

vegan Ramen - Edit

Good vegan ramen, buuut we actually already had way better vegan ramen in japan. It's location is central. On the other street side there is a ninja restaurant located. You may have to wait a little while in front of the restaurant, because it can get crowded. The staff can speak really good englisch and getting a vegan ramen is no problem at all.

great vegan ramen - Edit

We had to wait a while. It's a tiny ramen restaurant with an English menu. It has 2 types of veggie ramen - one with a soy based soup and one with a kelp based. I got the kelp and it was amazing. Would go back again. The staff spoke good English and assisted me to alter the menu to make it vegan.
