The famous noodle house, now in Munich

Düsseldorf is the Japanese capital of Germany. The Japanese restaurants there are supposedly the most authentic and best in Germany. One of the best there is the Takumi, a typical noodle house.

So what is the relation between this fact and Munich? Very easy, because since this week (since February 23, 2011), Munich has its own branch of the Takumi noodle house. It is located in Heßstraße 71, which is not the best area place to open a restaurant. Nevertheless, due to its good name, the Takumi managed to immediately attract a lot of customers, most of which are Japanese. Today, February 25, customers were even queuing to get a seat in the nicely furnished restaurant.

As can be expected from a noodle house, the main focus of the menu is on Japanese noodle soups or better-said, different variants of Ramen soup. In addition, you can order different starters like Gyoza, caviar on rice or fried chicken. The menu is both, Japanese and German and the staff spoke both as well. As far as we could test, you could get along with English too. In general, ordering food is very easy. In the worst case, you simply point on the pictures in the menu.

Both, soups and starters are very good and the Japanese customers seem to share this opinion. The prices are a little higher but after the first bite this is immediately forgiven. The cheapest noodle soup, Shoyu Ramen, are 8.80 Euro, the most expensive ones are 12.80 Euro. The ingredients are very fresh and the Ramen are excellent. An Italian would call the consistency "al dente".

If you want to save some money, you should visit the Takumi during lunchtime. Then you get Gyoza and rice free with your Ramen. Additionally, you get a stamp on your discount card. After collecting 10 stamps, you get Gyoza for free. If you are a little bit more patient, you can get a free lunch menu for 15 stamps.

At the moment, the Takumi is one of the best, or maybe the best Japanese noodle house in Munich.

Thanks for this post! Visiting Munich from Toronto and craving ramen. Takumi is great, much better than the poor imitation we have in Toronto. I'll have to recommend this to everybody.
