In Japan there’s a food that tastes even better the colder the weather—a food people like to gather around with friends and family. Knowing about or having experienced UDONSUKI, you must be quite the authority on traditional Japanese food! Nabe, the most enjoyable dish in traditional Japanese Cuisine—or rather, one of its many “attractions”—has many, many different variations. Nabe ranges from shabu-shabu-like varieties, where single slices of meat are stirred in a boiling broth, to chankonabe-l...moreike dishes, where all of the ingredients are mixed together and stewed beforehand. Among these you will find UDONSUKI, a special nabe dish from western Japan in which a shallow pot is used to stew together meat, vegetables, and udon noodles. Mimiu offers an up-close look at this UDONSUKI—cooked by skilled staff—as well as beautifully prepared vegetables and other delights for your dining pleasure.

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
Mimiu’s UDONSUKI was very healthy with lots of vegetables! I highly recommend it for the health-conscious diner. I love to drink, so when I saw FROZEN SAKE on the menu I just had to have it—even though I had just eaten dinner. Tasting this treat for the first time, it was dry and refreshingly cool. I felt like I could just go on drinking more and more.
When you order UDONSUKI you will be asked if you want the shrimp raw or boiled. I highly recommend you choose raw! It’s sure to make your udonsuki experience more thrilling and fun! And if you like Japanese liquor, please try the FROZEN SAKE. It’s rare for Japanese shops to serve sake sherbet—I have rarely seen it, myself.

How to Order & Eat
Mimiu Gion How to Order & Eat

Mimiu Gion, Kyoto’s menu is divided into three large sections: UDONSUKI served individually or in sets, soba/udon noodle dishes, and gozen meals (similar to a full course brought out all at once) including tempura (deep-fried prawns and vegetables). Udonsuki can be ordered in a single serving size, or for a number of diners for those who would like to gather around a big pot with like-minded people. You can rely on the restaurant staff to put in each of the ingredients at the proper timing for a relaxed, enjoyable meal. In addition to UDONSUKI and other udon noodle dishes, we’ve assembled rice bowls, Yuba -processed food of a soybean- cuisine, Kamo Nanban -warm soba noodles with duck meat and onions-, and many other Kyoto-esque dishes for your enjoyment. Please give them a try!
