“NEGI RAMEN” is the specialty menu of this restaurant.

In the first place, the name of the restaurant literally means“I’m the only person who is really crazy about ramen ”

Negi means green onion. Kyoto boasts specially local green onion famous for its KUJO NEGI.
NEGI RAMEN contains plenty of high-quality KUJO NEGI.

It is also called “Fire Ramen”.
Pouring burning oil just before eating brings out the flavour and characteristic aroma of green onion.
Be careful of the boiling oil onto the ramen noodles, or you will have your tongue and throat burnt.
“Fire Ramen”shall be consumed at the counter seat. So people without any order of “Fire Ramen” have to be seated separately.
Such performance by the owner is really good.
