Kelp and Bonito Broth Makes This Curry Udon Irresistable
This restaurant, always bustling with tourists, is located near the Yasaka shrine in Gion. They’re famous for their curry udon. The soup is mix of broth from kelp and bonito, and originally blended curry spices. You can choose from medium thick or thin noodles, but we recommend the medium thick. The firmness goes well with the curry soup. Also, because they don’t use any animal oils, your stomach feels light after the meal. Any tourist can feel at home, thanks to the thoroughly translated Englis...moreh menu and Chinese-speaking staff.
