Halal Ramen in Kyoto: Gion Naritaya

Even in Indonesia, one of the biggest country with moslem population in the world, I rarely find halal ramen (I mean, the certified one). So before going to Kyoto, I tried my luck and type in google: "Halal Ramen in Kyoto". Google leads me to a place called Gion Naritaya.

I search how to get to Gion Naritaya from our hostel Centurion Cabin & Spa, as we planned to drop off our backpack at the hostel before exploring Kyoto. And it's a 20 minutes walking distance, so we put it as a late lunch plan, after snacking at the Nishiki Market.

In reality, we had to walk quiet far, but with a cold winter weather and the beautiful sight of Gion, I wouldn't mind at all. We stopped here and there and after a 30 minutes walking from Nishiki Market, we arrived at Gion Naritaya.

A small restaurant for Halal Ramen in Kyoto

The restaurant is really small, we could barely move. But it has a small prayer room, which is very useful for moslem travelers. We could do our Dzuhur and Azhar prayer after or before enjoying the halal ramen at Gion Naritaya, before continue to explore Kyoto.

I asked the waiters who come from Bandung, Indonesia (my hometown), who owns the restaurant. They said that the owner is a Japanese. Wow, he/she must be a very good entrepreneur, knowing the business opportunity to provide halal restaurant in Kyoto as more moslem travelers coming to town.

Prayer room is located just next to the tatami seating table

We ordered Shoyu Ramen for JPY750 and Spicy Miso Ramen which cost JPY1,000. Water were free, so we didn't order anything for our drink.

I like the ramen so much, especially the egg, it was so delish!

The portion is not that big, but it surely had warmed up our body & soul:)

Other than ramen, they also provide rice bowl, fried chicken, fried dumplings which cost around JPY300-JPY00.

The waiters also told us that the restaurant is always full during lunch and especially dinner time. We arrived around 3pm, and the restaurant was empty. Please be informed that Gion Naritaya opens from 11am to 11pm, so just manage your time to get to this restaurant off peak hour.
