Umaimon Amsterdam: for Japanese soul food in the centre

You want to try the noodles at Umaimon Amsterdam

Umaimon Amsterdam, or Umaimon Amsterdam powered by Takumi Düsseldorf, has opened its doors next to Leidseplein. The Japanese noodle bar is hot and happening in Düsseldorf and hopes to be the ramen go to place in Amsterdam too. Umaimon Amsterdam serves Japanese soul food; noodle soup / ramen. We like!

Umaimon doesn’t just serve noodles; they serve authentic Sapporo noodles from Japan. These noodles are ripened for three days in a special climate cabinet at 18 degrees and then loosened by hand. The chicken broth where the noodles are served in are also drawn up to 24 hours. Yum! There are 12 different ramen dishes on the menu, which means you of course need to try al of them. Maybe it’s an idea to introduce a strip card? Besides ramen you can also try the side dishes like bao buns and gyozas.

The interior will bring you back to Japan. It’s a nice red room with a lot of Japanese influences like wooden details and open lampshades. The Japanese designer Takumi Ogata has made a special graphic artwork on the wall that complete the Japanese atmosphere.

from Takumi to Umaimon Amsterdam

Time for some background information. In 2007 Takumi opened in Düsseldorf. The Japanese chef Saeki got everyone excited with his Sapporo noodles with Tonkotsubouillon and pork and opened several new Takumis in Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt and Rotterdam(!). In 2011, the concept was expanded with Umaimon, where you can order Sapporo noodles served in chicken stock. This was also a great success. And years later in 2017 we can also try these special noodles in Amsterdam. Hallelujah!
