Takumi – Of rice and ramen

A couple of weeks ago, Japanese friends of mine stopped by, spending a week in Munich on their tour through Europe. They had eaten Pizza in Rome and Baguettes in Paris, so for now Schweinsbraten, Weißwürste, Obatzda and Leberkäs were on their list. Thrilled with horror, I was glad that it wasn’t Oktoberfest season at least, so I didn’t have to finish their beer on top of that. To abbreviate all the eating going on, on day 4 I decided to stop this Bavarian meat madness. And took them to Takumi.

We came early in the evening, because it’s always packed with people and you can’t make reservations but have to wait in a small entrance room. Nevertheless, the waiting is worth it and makes you hungry enough to actually finish one of those huge, delicious ramen bowls (ramen = Japanese type of noodles, served with/in a soup). You can choose the flavour of the soup, the ingredients and even add some extras. Usually I go with the beef or chicken version but this time I chose a vegetarian ramen, and it was excellent too! The waiters are very friendly and you can watch the cooks through the open kitchen – but most important, the meals are authentic and always of the best quality.

Seeing my friends slurping their ramen peacefully, I knew it was the right decision to take them to Takumi – especially since 2 more weeks of tapas and goulash were in store for them…
