The review of Ayam-YA by Salma Intifadha
Visiting a foreign country doesn’t feel complete without trying local delicacies. But for us muslims, finding a halal local restaurant especially in Japan can be pretty difficult. I myself have always wanted to taste ramen, the popular noodle dish of Japan, but couldn’t find a halal one until now. That’s why I was very happy to know about Ayam-ya, the halal ramen shop located not far from Kyoto station. Since it’s still new, not many people in the neighborhood know about this shop, but if you follow the map in their facebook page, it’s actually not that difficult to find the place. They serve several ramen menus, and the one I tried was ramen with thick broth. It was delicious, I promised myself to comeback to try different menu. What make me even happier is that they provide prayer’s room (meditation room), completed with a place for ablution. Now, I don’t have to feel worry about what to eat and where to do my prayer when visiting Kyoto station area. I hope their business goes well so that this shop will always be there for muslim visitors.
