Head down to the bustling Gion district to enjoy making your very own ramen noodles from scratch during this unique Ramen Noodle Making Experience in Kyoto. This hands-on ramen making workshop is held at a well-known restaurant named Musoshin, which sees over 6,000 visitors each month. This experience offers the chance for you to learn how to make Musoshin’s delicious ramen noodles from scratch!
Musoshin has refined the art of making ramen noodles, which you can learn during this class. Your instructor will first explain the different steps of making ramen using a special noodle-making machine. Next, you will pour the water and knead the dough (made with two types of flour) using the machine. Your instructor will help you to properly roll the dough into sheets like an expert, to get the optimal chewiness. After rolling and cutting the noodles, you will get the chance to taste and compare ramen noodles of 3 different thicknesses.
Musoshin has 3 branches spread across Osaka, Kyoto, and Kameoka. This Kyoto noodle making experience truly combines the essence of quality produce and local craftsmanship. Once an old house, Musoshin’s Kyoto branch in the famous Gion district (one of the city’s most famous tourist areas) features black ramen made using black sesame supplied from a local producer. This Kyoto store also uses high-quality rice from the local Kyotamba area, as well as condiments from local makers for an authentic, regional ramen experience.
The soup at Musoshin is thick and richly flavored, cooked from a range of vegetables blended together to make it both mild and smooth. They match perfectly with freshly homemade ramen noodles! Musoshin’s noodle recipe is made from a carefully selected blend of flour varieties. Their noodles are matured for just the right amount of chewiness, but still smooth at the same time. You can discover them for yourself as you can eat a delicious bowl of ramen at the end of this great workshop!
