Are You Ready For Kikanbo's Spicy Miso Ramen?

Do you love spicy food and miss it while you're in Japan? Sure Japanese food is delicious, but real spicy food lovers will tell you that what Japanese people call spicy is actually mild. But at Kikanbo, they don't mess around! Are you brave enough to try the spiciest one??

Feel free to follow favy!


Kikanbo opened its first store in Kanda in 2009, and now they have 3 branches in Tokyo, and 3 branches in Taipei!

You won't be able to miss this resto when you walk by, as the demons adorning the shop will welcome you (or scare you away).


So what makes their ramen so special anyway, right? There seem to be as many ramen restaurants as stars in the sky in Japan, so what distinguishes this one from the rest?

Well, they have an original miso paste that they ferment in a wood barrel, to which they then add cheese, peanuts, fish sauce, and spices. Once the miso is ready they will cook again in front of your eyes at the store to really capture the deep taste of the miso. And you can also choose the spiciness levels for two different kinds of spices: "kara" (original red pepper) and "shibi" (Sichuan flower pepper).

And then the soup! They stew pig and chicken bones for over 10 hours to really deepen the taste. You'll have to taste it to understand!
Once you walk in, you will order from the vending machine. You can ask for an English menu and the staff will gladly help you.
Then after ordering, the staff will guide to the seat at the counter.
In the menu you can choose different types of thickness for the roasted pork (some of which are HUGE).

You can also choose rice topped with a ridiculous portion of roasted pork on top! I hope you brought your appetite!
