I love simple places that specialise in something and are really great at it. At Yukiguni the main dish on offer is Ramen – only Ramen. There are different variations, with pork or vegetarian, miso or soya based, but what you get each and every time is an authentic, steaming, healthy soup with noodles, soya sprouts, leek, boiled egg and nori leaves. The Gyoza make a great starter if you feel super hungry and if you are up for an unusual dessert – try the Mochi ice.
The place is tiny, and you have to squeeze on one of the benches or chairs, but it is what makes it authentic and cozy at the same time. They don’t take reservations and it is often quite full. Best you go with a small party to increase your chances of getting a spot. It is conveniently located if you walk from the Stand tram stop over the bridge in the direction of the train station.
Great value for money (around 20-25 CHF) by Geneva standards.
