Shinpuku Saikan (in Kyobashi, Osaka) – enjoy the taste of the long-established ramen shop that has continued for about 80 years

Shinpuku Saikan, which is a Kyoto-based ramen shop, opened a branch at Kyobashi, Osaka in 2008. I remember that I was very glad in those days that I could eat its ramen even in Osaka.

Shinpuku Saikan is one of the representative ramen shops of Kyoto. The main shop and its neighbor, Honke-Daiichi-Asahi, both of which are located near Kyoto Station, have massive lines every day.

There are some kinds of ramen in Kyoto and Shinpuku Saikan makes the soup by blending dark soy sauce with clear soup based on chicken, pork bone and meat. Of course, you can enjoy the same taste at Kyobashi shop as the main shop.

In the picture above you can see very dark soup, thick straight noodles produced by Kondo noodle, and Kujyo-negi (leek from Kujyo), which is essential for Kyoto ramen. All of these are combined in good balance, which makes the ramen very delicious.

The fried rice is also unique. As it is fried with the soy sauce for the soup, it has a dark color and an aromatic flavor of scorched soy sauce.

Kyobashi has also Chuka-Soba-Hanakyo and the next station area has Koryumas. You may not be able to decide soon which shop to visit, but I will recommend Shinpuku Saikan without hesitating if you like ramen based on soy sauce. (Translated by Daisuke Miyatori)
