Located near Ginkaku-ji and the Philosopher's Walk. Very popular and always has a line. Delicious udon served with all of the traditional condiments. Special mention goes to the seasonal kamo (duck) udon with tender slices of duck breast and a robust broth.

This was such a great lunch. The Omen udon noodles, the pickles and the tempura were the best we ever had. Very friendly and welcoming staff.

A good place for some local Japanese flavours that go beyond sushi and tempura (although both of those were good too). The miso eggplant and grilled beef with veggies were big highlights as well as the steamed egg. Great stop for dinner after the philosophers...More
