BAOBAO opens up at Ichijōji, Kyoto, specialising in the widely popular spicy Chinese ramen “Malatang”
BAOBAO is Kyoto’s first ramen shop that specialises in “Malatang”, which is a kind of Chinese street food. On 5th February 2019, a new shop opened up in the famous ramen hotspot Ichijōji!
The Malatang soup broth is made using a variety of Chinese ingredients. Sichuan pepper provides a tongue-numbing spiciness (麻), whilst chilli pepper produces its hot spiciness (辣). The soup goes perfectly with glass noodles. Malatang is a massive hit in Japan. Many major food companies and restaurants are churning out masses of Malatang-flavoured snacks and food menus. What’s the secret to Malatang’s popularity? You can enjoy this meal and still obtain lots of nutritious vegetables, the glass noodles are healthy, and the spices are also good for your body!
The soups made at BAOBAO are packed with over 20 varieties of traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, blended using natural methods and boiled to make a soup. Just how you can in China, customers can tailor Malatang to their liking as the restaurant has 30 different toppings that you can choose from. There are also 5 levels of spiciness to choose from, so those who are bad with spice can also relax and enjoy a hearty meal here.
The flavours of this Malatang ramen are the result of thorough and rigorous preparation. The chefs studied Chinese cuisine at a first-class hotel and created this menu with the goal that all customers feel their bodies satisfied and full of joy after finishing their meal.
Besides Malatang, there is also minced pork rice, soft and tender steamed chicken prepared at a low heat, yumcha tea and other various sides. This place caters for both those who want to go all out for dinner and those who are on diets.
This simple ramen restaurant is perfect for anyone ー whether you come alone or in a group, please check it out!
