KIWAMI strives to provide the art of Asian cuisine in Austin. We specialize in ramen, otherwise known as the "soul food" of Japan. This dish consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a pork or chicken based broth with a variety of additional toppings. Our broth is slowly brewed for up to 12 hours, allowing all the goodness from the ingredients to emulsify into every drop.
Chef Ame, was trained in Japan and has years of experience in Japanese cuisine. Every ramen chef has their own unique expression and culinary style. Chef Ame will use traditional techniques combined with fine quality ingredients to create an authentic ramen experience for you. He was the head chef at a renowned ramen bar in Manhattan and has since opened several restaurants in our great state of Texas. Now, it is our absolute pleasure to have him join KIWAMI. It’s hard to describe how our ramen will stimulate your palate, so come and enjoy a bowl of our meticulously crafted ramen yourself!
Paying homage to our roots, formerly SHABU, we still offer delicious Chinese hot pot but now with our twist on Japanese dishes. We seek to offer delicious food straight from Asian kitchens to those in Austin. We guarantee that you will find something to enjoy at KIWAMI.
