Ippudo became my favorite ramen place after my visit to Japan. Their Shiromaru Classis is heavenly and very filling. They even have a vegetarian ramen option.

Very nice ramen altough a bit spicy. We had to wait 30 minutes, may be too much. Options are only ramen and gyozas but very nice vegetables side dishes.

They serve the biggest and best ramen and dumplings! I could've easily shared one ramen and one dumpling serve with my partner they are that big but because they are so delicious we ordered one each! Definitely worth it- great taste and very affordable!

Cold suntory draft beer! Fast service even though it was really busy! Ippudo’s reputation stands true in whatever city you are in! The Hakata fried dumplings are addicting! Hahahahaha

The ramen was great at Ippudo Nishikikoji. The place was easy to find outside of Nishiki Market. The soup base was tasty, not too creamy. The noodles were perfect. The wait staff spoke some English and there was an English menu. Great ramen experience.

The place is small so we had to line up but it was definitely worth it. I had gyoza and a ramen dish called special "Akamaru modern". One of the best ramen I have ever had. The gyoza was very nice as well. I definitely...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
