Handmade Soba and Donburi with Richly Flavored Dashi

Ukiya The Museum of Kyoto
A soba restaurant located in The Museum of Kyoto. The noodles are painstakingly handmade using fragrant domestic buckwheat flour, and are eaten dipped in a slightly sweet “soba tsuyu” broth. Also recommended are the Curry Don and Oyakodon, both made with a delicious dashi with konbu seaweed and bonito flavors. The restaurant features table seating (which can fit 6 at most) and floor seating. Customers with a little more time on their hand are recommended to take a load of and relax in the floor-...moreseating area.

1Must Eat !
Tenzaru / ¥1,380
Relatively thin noodles that go down nicely, with a delicious fragrance. First try the soba without dipping to appreciate their fragrance, then dip in the "soba tsuyu" broth to enjoy both flavors together.
Niku Currydon
2Must Eat !
Niku Currydon / ¥1,200
The soup is made with kobu seaweed, bonito, and a mild curry. Mix the meat, bound with egg, with the rice below before eating.
Wanko Set
3Let's Try !
Wanko Set / +¥200 when added to a donburi
Wanko Soba - a variation on the traditional Japanese-style soup that comes with donburi.
Recommended for those wishing to enjoy both a soba and a donburi dish.
*You can choose whether you’d like your Wanko Soba hot or cold; pictures is the hot version.
4Let's Try !
Soba-yu / Free
Soba-yu after boiled buckwheat noodles hot water.
Soba-yu is drank with "soba tsuyu" poured in after you have finished eating your soba noodles. High in nutrients, it is also said to be good for your skin.
*Soba-yu is brought by a member of staff when you’ve finished eating your soba noodles. It’s free, so there’s no need to worry about extra charges!
