Try to authentic Kyoto style Udon near the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art
Located right next to Heian Jingu Shine, Okakita is famous for offering authentic Kyoto style Udon and Soba noodles and is loved by locals and foreign visitors alike.
All ingredients are carefully selected to create the finest dishes possible.
Okakita’s Udon varies between being boiled for 10 to 15 minutes because the texture of noodles actually change according to the temperature of each specific day.
Over 15 noodle dishes are available on the menu, however, amongst them, the Ten-toji (tempura is cooked with egg) is an authentic Kyoto styled Udon.
The flavors of the soft Udon noodles grow more delicate as the natural kombu kelp extracts soup. All Udon dishes can be changed to Soba as well, meaning that many customers queue up even before the the restaurant opens at 11 AM.
As there is always such a large queue, we highly recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before opening.
While waiting in line you can enjoy the incredible smell of the kombu stock that wafts from the restaurant.
