Koto Ramen

The East in Florence

Florence is a city that lives on traditions and history. But even with all the great baggage of the past behind him, the city doen’t give up the new and exotic. In fact, there is plenty of excellent ethnic restaurants, but there is one that has become very popular thanks to its offer at the same time simple but high quality and, above all, suitable for all tastes and palates who want to try a taste of Asia: Koto Ramen.

With two addresses in the city, one for each bank of the Arno, as well as a third restaurant in Prato, Koto Ramen is a real oriental gem. The minimal appearance of the location in via Verdi, the simple mise en place, the light colors and the sober lighting make this oriental bistro the perfect setting for a relaxing dinner or lunch, under the banner of discovering new gastronomic horizons.

Everyone knows ramen, even if they have never tasted it. It is a very simple dish, which lends itself to innumerable variations. Precisely because it is composed of a few ingredients, it is essential that these are processed and prepared to perfection. Broth, noodles and condiments create a fruitful dialogue between Japanese tradition and Italian territory, creating a broad spectrum format, which allows you to base your dish on the ingredient you prefer, fish, meat or vegetables, with quality combinations to make it even more tasty.

Among all the dishes that come out of the kitchen, miso duck ramen is certainly one of the most remarkable, along with the tan tan mushrooms, a spicy vegetable broth completed by the thick flavor of mushroom ragu. Another pearl are the Japanese tapas are: regular and vegetarian gyoza, pork tonkatsu with cabbage salad and purple cabbage, edamame and pumpkin nambam.

Whether you are passionate or simply curious, Koto Ramen and his team will make sure that, at the end of dinner, a smile of satisfaction and satiety is drawn on your lips.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences florence has to offer.
