“Monsen” is a popular chicken cuisine and chicken broth ramen restaurant in Gion, Kyoto. With hopes to share this delicious food with as many people as possible on a global scale, we have collaborated with Monsen to develop a restaurant brand that offers not only chicken broth ramen, but chicken broth udon as well. The use of special noodles, the thick, white chicken broth full of collagen and the special thermo bowl enables us to serve the chicken broth ramen and udon with concentrated umami flavor of chicken while it is piping hot.
“Monsen” was founded in July, 2003 as a yakitori specialty restaurant in Fushimi, Kyoto. They are known for using only fresh chickens that are butchered in the morning. They first offered chicken broth soup in their lunchtime menu, which immediately became popular. The chicken broth ramen became a favorite especially among customers after drinking. This lead to the opening of Chicken Ramen “Monsen” in Gion, an area bustling with people at night. Word also spread among woman customers that the abundant collagen in the soup leaves your skin silky smooth the next day. In addition to the branding value of being located in Gion, Kyoto, this ramen is full of vegetables, healthy and has beauty enhancement qualities.
“Monsen” takes pride in its light and flavorful soup made from simmering fresh chicken that is butchered in the morning and vegetables for a long time. The soup is rich and full of flavor that it is quite addictive, yet light enough that you will want to drink every last drop. Botejyu Group’s “Monsen” not only reproduces the authentic taste of the chicken ramen of the main restaurant in Gion, Kyoto, but it is also a new type of udon restaurant that breaks conventional practices and offers a menu selection where one can enjoy the true taste of chicken broth soup.
Monsen’s signature “special chicken soup” is a collagen-rich white soup made by carefully simmering chicken and six different types of vegetables for eight hours. From our 6 different types of noodles, we choose the one that best suit the menu dish. The 6 types of noodles are: ramen noodles (thick, thin and curly), udon noodles (thick and thin) and glass noodles.
