Fire Ramen | "Menbakaichidai" in Kyoto, Japan

Just one little search on Instagram for fire ramen will bring up a plethora of slow-mo shots of this crazy-fire-themed ramen restaurant. Located in Japan's cultural capital, Kyoto, put this on the must-do list next time you're here!

Feel free to follow favy!

No Ramen. No Life. Lots of fire!

This is the motto that the staff live by. It's also written on the back of their shirts! If you hadn't guessed it yet, Menba-kaichi-dai (woah what a mouthful) is all about setting ramen on fire!
Yeah, I wasn't joking! Fire Ramen is officially called green onion ramen. (not sure why but let's run with it).
They do it by pouring burning oil over the dish just before eating. Apparently, it brings out the flavour and aroma of green onion. Ahah!
The ramen is pretty basic and the soup stock is a simple soy sauce-based soup of chicken, pork, and fish.
The guy running the place is a funny Japanese man that calls himself the "Fire ra-Men". You can even get a cool pin with his face on it!

It's a pretty unique and interesting spot a bit of food and show. If you're staying in Kyoto, chuck this in the itinerary and have some food fun during your stay!

Fun for the whole family!

Your kids can also try Fire Ramen Challenge in the following conditions. They'll also a get a pin!

Over 110cm (3'7")
Elementary school student
Order a full bowl
Don't cry
Don't run away

Personally, I like the last two conditions! lol! If you're an adult but under 110cm please check with the staff. I'm sure you'll be fine if you don't cry or run away ;)

The deets

Menbakaichidai is located on the northern side of Nijo Castle in Kyoto. Just a 10-15 minute walk from Nijo station. Just hit up google maps for the best way to get there from your location. If you're planning on heading here, make sure to get in early as it's a popular place and a line of customers start to form early in the mornings.
