True Ramen

Jun 06 2006

Much of our time in Kyoto was spent walking around Kyoto Station and its environs, trying to decide what to eat. We went into a bookstore and did some tachi-yomi (standing and reading) at the travel section, flipping through books of restaurant recommendations. We found a book of Kyoto’s 100 best ramen joints, and one was just around the corner. The noodles were delicious, and the lady even called out “├┤kini!” as we left, Kansai dialect for “thanks!”
