Kyoto Menya Takei Hankyu Umeda Store

The restaurant that produces long queues in Kyoto has opened a branch in Hankyu Umeda station!

Today I had lunch at a ramen store that had just opened today in “Kyoto Menya Takei Hankyu Umeda Store” inside Hankyu Umeda Station. It already has 2 branches in Kyoto, the 3rd branch has been opened in Osaka! It was a bit far away before so I am very happy to see its new store opened here!
Noodles with a rich tonkotsu (pork bone) and seafood soup sauce and a soft boiled egg (medium size): 980 yen. The medium size had a large amount of noodles – 280g to be precise!



The first thing I did was to try the thick noodles just as they were.


WOW!! They are so good! As you eat the noodles the glorious flavor and aroma of the wheat fills your mouth.



Next, I tried a bit of the soup sauce.


WOW! This is delicious too! If you love rich, strong flavors hen you will love this soup sauce as much as mE!


I dip the noodles into the soup sauce…


Wow! What an amazing combination! The strong flavor of the soup sauce doesn’t overpower the flavor of the noodles at all, in fact it complements the noodles perfectly.


Let’s try dipping the large roasted pork fillet into the soup sauce…


Wow! This is amazing! The roasted pork fillet is so tender and delicious!


The soft boiled egg.


Wow! Tasty! The soft boiled egg has been flavored with soy sauce and tastes great with the soup sauce.


This pot was was I got when I ordered the soup stock soup!



Wow, amazing! It was so tasty I just couldn’t stop drinking it.


It’s been a while since the last time I drank all the soup like this.



There are two types of the ramen that I ordered (‘Noodles with a rich tonkotsu (pork bone) and seafood soup sauce and a soft boiled egg ‘) on the menu.


I got to the restaurant at 12:45 midday and there were 8 people waiting to be seated. I got to sit down after a 15 minute wait. The queue completely disappeared after 1:00pm, so I recommend going after 1:00pm if you don’t want to queue. in any case, I am so happy that I can now enjoy such great ramen so close to home!
