The soba noodle restaurants you just have to visit in Kyoto!
Enjoy the taste and atmosphere with hundreds, even thousands of years of history.
The fairly soft, beautifully cut soba fit the soba soup, which gets it kick from a nice dashi, really beautifully. I really wish you get a chance to taste these authentic soba with 500 years of history in Kyoto.
There is always a line in front of the restaurant, so it might be a good idea to go right after they open. Or just not go during the lunch rush from noon to 1PM.
Their soba is freshly ground every day using a water wheel, and they use vegetables grown in Kyoto, and they offer all of this at reasonable prices. I would like to recommend this restaurant as a break spot if you get tired when shopping or when you are on a walk.
I want to enjoy soba at my own pace! I want to enjoy Kyoto’s soba until I am completely satisfied!
For those of you thinking that way, I recommend to you soba with a drink. Soba and a drink have come together a long way, this bar-style soba has its roots in the Edo period of Japan. Having a drink while it’s still not dark outside, slurping some soba, is what defines happiness for me.
In the next part I am going to delve into bar-style soba. I hope you will try the connoisseur’s way of enjoying soba too!
