Story & Recommendation
The famous hot pot udon restaurant Fumiya frequented by locals is right by Nishiki Market
If you enter Nishiki Market from the west entrance and go north on the first corner, you will find a restaurant that people are always lining for at mealtime. That restaurant is this one, a famous udon restaurant loved by the locals for a long time, Fumiya. Fumiya was founded in 1946 as a Japanese sweets café, over 70 years ago. The place was popular from the beginning, but Fumiya didn’t end here. “What could we do to make even more people satisfied?” is what the people of Fumiya kept asking themselves, and so their most famous dish, Fumiya nabe udon hot pot was born. The generous amount of ingredients and the gentle taste of the dashi and udon make this a specialty. “This much, for this price?” is the surprise that keeps the locals coming again and again. They are not afraid of putting in the effort, so in order to make the customers happy they of course use good ingredients and make everything by hand. These thoughtful dishes and service of Fumiya can be enjoyed for a low price. This satisfaction is the reason why the locals keep on frequenting this restaurant. Besides udon hot pot they also sell sweets like the baumkuchen German spit cake, and their products can be ordered online, so they have many services they provide in order to make the customers happy. If you go to Nishiki Market, you have to have your lunch at Fumiya! I hope you will get a chance to taste the gentle udon hot pot people of Kyoto have loved from way back.
