Wow, we can’t believe that after six years blogging, this is the first time we write a post about Kyoto! Kyoto had been in our bucket list especially since we wanted to visit Arashiyama during Sakura season, but only until last December I finally stepped my foot on Kyoto. Not for Sakura viewing (well… obiviously…), but to try a restaurant that offer Halal washoku dish near Arashiyama area.

Filming Location: Arashi (嵐)’s Kimi no Uta (君のうた) PV
Senangnya ada lagi PV Arashi yang shooting-nya ga di studio. Apalagi lokasinya ga terpencil, mudah dicari, dan saling berdekatan satu sama lain jadi bisa dikunjungi semuanya dalam sehari. Jalur yang bakal kami share di sini termasuk dengan rekomendasi jadwal dan review tempat makan yang disinggahi oleh member Arashi. Untuk memulai perjalanan ini, kami sarankan dimulai dari stasiun Tokyo Sky Tree. Sebelum kita napak tilas, yang punya videonya bisa ditonton dulu PV nya (karena kami malas nge-screen cap, hehe).

No Pork Ichiran Ramen, Shinjuku
Have you ever wondered how the non-halal non-vegetarian Ramen taste like? We’ve tasted some Halal or vegetarian Ramen before. Our most favorite Ramen is the one from Matsuri restaurant in Osaka. Since then, there’s barely any Halal Ramen that can meet our standard. We always goes “yeah…. it’s good, but not as good as the one in Matsuri”. Lol.
Early this year, the famous Tonkotsu Ramen shop, Ichiran, open their No Pork Ichiran Ramen shop in Tokyo. I’ve read the review that said the taste is similar to original one. It spark my curiosity wether it can beat the Matsuri Ramen. However please understand that there is no Halal certification for this No Pork Ichiran Ramen.
Halal CoCo Curry Shinjuku
Lima tahun yang lalu Coco Curry merupakan makanan pertama yang kami makan di Jepang. Tidak ada menu vegetarian maupun halal saat itu. Sekarang kamu bias menikmati CoCo Curry yang sudah mendapatkan sertifikat halal.
Cafe & Bar ARASICK
Ini dia pasangan sejoli dari Bar Kanpachi yang sudah pernah kita ceritakan beberapa bulan lalu. Kalau Bar Kanpachi serba Kanjani, maka Arasick serba Arashi dong.. Sama-sama berlokasi di Namba, Osaka, Cafe & Bar Arasick dan Bar Kanpachi berada di gedung yang sama dan hanya terpaut satu lantai.
Halal Restaurant: Sojibo at KIX Airport
When it comes to Halal Restaurant option, KIX is one of our favorite. Previously, we had udon at The U-don. This time, we tried soba dish at Sojibo. The restaurant has Halal logo in front of their restaurant, so even without prior information search, fellow Muslim traveler can be assured that they provide Halal menu.
Halal Japanese Food Resto: Matsuri
This is probably the best halal restaurant we ever visited. No kidding. The food, the vibe, and the service are superb!
The Life Cafe Hakata
After Hokkaido, Fukuoka is also known as food paradise. One of their popular dish is Hakata Ramen. Unfortunately the broth is made from pork so Muslim cannot try the dish. Don’t be sad because you can still savor a bowl of Halal Ramen in Hakata eventhough it’s different from Hakata Ramen. The Life Cafe and Hostel offers Muslim friendly menu at their Cafe.
