So good you want to eat it again and again! Our take on the classic Chinese ramen and traditional Japanese udon noodles are a big hit with many local fans.
Founded in 1935, "Chikara" is a popular noodle chain restaurant currently operating in about 30 locations throughout Hiroshima. This branch is located in “Hondori”, the most popular shopping district in Hiroshima close to the Peace Memorial Park. Locals and tourists of all walks of life and generations come to shop here.
The first floor of our building serves "udon" (classic Japanese wheat-flour noodles) using the same traditional methods we have for years and our “udon-dashi” (udon broth) is made from Rishiri kelp, Kyoto blend bonito shavings, and Hyogo Tatsuno's fresh light soy sauce.
The second floor serves "ramen" (Japanese-style Chinese noodles served in broth) which is very popular especially with international visitors. We are one of four Chikara branches where you can enjoy our new specially made ramen that was born in 2012 in collaboration with Ramen Specialty restaurant “Hakata Ippudo”.
Additionally, we serve several side orders such as gyoza, fried chicken, and chopped chashu pork which customers often enjoy with draft or craft beer before having a bowl of ramen.
We also have a selection of rice dishes and seasonal Japanese sweets.
Take-out is available for most of our menu items so you can enjoy the taste of Chikara at home.
