In my humble opinion, Suwon lacks good places to eat when it comes to foreign food, specially if you are comparing it with Itaewon or Hongdae. However, from time to time I find a nice place that gives me hope about this city. Today I’m introducing Kiwamaruaji, a Japanese-style ramen place that will satisfy your ramen cravings!
Japanese Ramen in Suwon! A friend of ours moved near Ajou University and told us that there was a very small ramen shop that was always busy and that was the best he has ever tried here, so we gave it a chance and visited together.
The shop is indeed really small, with seats for maybe 15 people and with a constant line (we arrived at 11:40 and had to wait a bit already). Once you tell them how many people you are, they will give you a small cat/dog keychain with your number and the menu. Look through the menu and order your meal when the waiter asks you.
|Opening hours:||Everyday from 11:00~22:00|
|How to get there:||The restaurant is in the Ajou University area. There’s no subway that goes there, but plenty of buses:|
|Address:||Suwon-si, paldal-gu, uman-2-dong 89-11/ 수원시 팔달구 우만2동 89-11|
