During wintertime, when it’s cold and grey outside, nothing is better than a hearty and savoury ramen soup… and Umamido is the place to go!
After going there for the first time last year to celebrate my birthday, Umamido is now my favourite ramen bar in Geneva.
The place is quite small, simple — I would say minimalist, but very stylish and very Japanese. What could be a bit annoying sometimes is that they don’t take any reservations; however, the service is very fast and efficient, and, in any case, their delicious ramen is worth the wait!
The menu offers about six different types of ramen and starters. My recommendations are the pork buns and the tonkotsu ramen… so yummy!!
Plus, I love how the ramens are presented in such lovely bowls where all the ingredients seem to have their precise spot to create a superb culinary masterpiece: so irresistible!
The mix of Japanese culinary ramen tradition with local ingredients is the key to the great success this restaurant has enjoyed, which, by the way, also recently opened a second branch in Rive area, in the heart of Geneva city centre, in addition to their first location in Boulevard Carl-Voigt.
