We agree, speaking of the opening of a new ramen restaurant when it’s 30°C outside, it’s quite incongruous. But once you’ve tasted Ryukishin ramen, you’ll thank us. It’s at 59 rue de Richelieu, in the famous district for Japanese gastronomy lovers, that Ryukishin opened.
If you’re a traveler, this name may ring a bell and it’s normal since Ryukishin is already present in several cities across the world: Osaka, Kyoto, Milan and Valencia. It’s in Paris that on July 2, 2018, Ryukishin founder Tatsuji Ma Tsubara chose to settle down.
At Ryukishin the main dish is ramen! Coming in all shapes and full of different flavors, it will surely delight fans of authentic and traditional Japanese cuisine. Because here, everything is homemade: from noodles (made of high-range Japanese flour) to broths without forgetting the sauce (based on mussels) and oils.
The base of these typical dishes, 3 broths brewing for hours on which are added poultry and vegetables for a super healthy outcome. For example, we tasted the Sakaï (€15.20), Ryukishin very first ramen which recipe hasn’t change in 20 years and the Ryukishin (€15.80), a creamy ramen topped with vegetable tempura, a slice of chicken and a slice of braised duck.
Since 2012, Ryukishin offers patrons a ramen very special since they are the only ones to do it in Paris: a vegan ramen (€16.60)! Instead of poultry, there’s a broth based on vegetable, kombu seaweeds, miso, dried shiitake mushrooms and soy milk.
Gourmet foodies can also taste the Tsukemen (noodles to dip in broth, fried kara-age chicken and delicious chicken gyozas (we tried the fried version and it won our hearts!).
It’s definitely a trip to Japan!
