Vegan Ramen Recognized by The MICHELIN Bib Gourmand!
The Vegan Ramen UZU starts in Kyoto, opens its very first branch in 2020 at a bit of countryside of Kyoto, Goshominami. The art welcomes visitors from the entrance. Inside the shop, we were presented by the Team Labo’s art “Black in White / Reversible Rotation” displayed on the wall, black tables that reflect the art allowing visitors to enjoy vegan meals while letting themselves wrapped in art.
Visiting the shop give a magical-like feeling as we had never felt anywhere else. In the visit, we were able to enjoy the shop’s recommendation “vegan ramen fukahi (soy sauce)”.
The soup broth is made from kelp, shiitake mushrooms, and other vegetables that give an elegant scent. In addition to the rich taste and strong umami which is surprising!
The ramen uses medium-thick noodles that meet perfectly with the soup. The taste of tomatoes brought up in the middle gives visitors another surprising changing taste. Regardless of whether it is vegan or not, that ramen is amazing!
Besides ramen, the shop offers other noodle meals, oshizushi (literally means “pressed sushi”), desserts and more.
The Vegan Ramen UZU Kyoto is introduced as Bib Gourmand on MICHELINE guide Kyoto, Osaka, Wakayama 2022.
Vegan Ramen UZU Comes to Tokyo!
The Vegan Ramen UZU opens in autumn 2021 at the Team Labo Planets in Toyosu, Tokyo. Same with the Kyoto’s, the Tokyo branch is also decorated with spectacular interior art as well as exterior art such as “Table of Sky and Fire” and “One Stroke Bench”.
Even though Tokyo’s is comparatively smaller than Kyoto’s, but it has a different atmosphere which visitors will definitely love to enjoy.
In the Tokyo branch, they have “vegan ramen tea” (ramen soup) with an addictive thick and spicy taste.
