Okonomiyaki in the Kyoto traditional house
The okonomiyaki restaurant 'KAMU', meaning 'dreams become true' in Japanese, was built by reconstructing the Japanese traditional style house. The appearance is an old style with red lanterns; it is good sign which can find out restaurant easily. 'KAMU' offers the Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki which is known for having yakisoba noodles and also for its ingredients all layered rather than mixed. You can see the iron plate on the left side of the entrance. Okonomiyaki, yakisoba or other dishes are cooked on the iron plate every night. If you sit the seat in front of it, you can enjoy seeing how to cook the Okonomiyaki and feel good smell which stimulate your appetite. I recommend the bar counter seat in the dinner time. We will introduce the lunch menu of the Kamu in this article. It is rare case to enjoy the okonomiyaki in the lunch time. Big size lunch menus are available, if you are hungry, please check it !
Hiroshima yaki set
A plenty of cabbages, slices of pork and noodles are inside. Really big size ! Sweet and spicy sauce (similar to teriyaki sauce)and seaweed are topping already, so you can eat as it is. Rice, miso soup, radish pickles and small dish are served together.
Noodles are cooked with pork and vegetables, and the accompaniment is red ginger which is a little bit sour, but goes well with sweet & spicy yakisoba sauce. It is a traditional taste, and reminds us of a yatai which is woody food truck.
How about a refreshing dessert ? This photo is a citron sherbet which makes us refresh and cool after eating the hot and spicy okonomiyaki. Sliced fresh citron peels are mixed and it gives the sherbet a rich taste.
How to Order
A dinner menu has photos which help you to image how are the dishes. A lunch menu doesn’t have photos but written in English. You can take more rice and miso soup without extra charge in the case of lunch set.
