Story & Recommendation
The elegant taste of oyakodon that has people queuing around the block everyday
Hisago is a restaurant near to Kodaiji temple that serves soba, udon noodles, and rice dishes. Their specialty is oyakodon, which is chicken and egg on a bed of rice. Every day, people wait in line outside the restaurant to eat Hisago’s oyakodon. Oyakodon is characterized by the fluffy texture of its egg and its juicy chicken. Hisago’s staff give the dish an elegantly mellow taste that is perfectly balanced in its richness. Hisago is open from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. every weekday, with no closures for public holidays. Customers may have to wait for an hour to be seated and are therefore asked to come when they are not in a rush. Customers from overseas can rest assured that they will be able to order easily because menu options and their explanations are printed in English, Chinese, and Korean.
1Recommended
Oyako Don
Oyako Don / ¥1,010
This dish represents the perfect balance between the moderate sweetness of egg, the exquisite flavor of chicken, and the fresh taste of green spring onions. Eat it with a flavor-infused bowl of rice.
2Recommended
Small Zaru Soba
Small Zaru Soba / ¥680*NomalSize¥790
This type of soba is made by kneading powdered green tea into noodles. They come in small portions, so we recommend that you order zaru soba to eat with Oyako Don.
3Let's Try!
Kinugasa Don
Kinugasa Don / ¥870
Kinugasa Don looks similar to Oyako Don but is made with different ingredients. The dish contains the slightly stronger flavor of seasoned soybean curd and springy-textured Kamaboko(fish paste). Customers who dislike chicken may wish to choose this option.
4Let's Try!
Japanese pepper
Japanese pepper / Free
This is a table spice. Add it to Oyako Don to intensify the flavor and make it an even more delicious meal.  
How to Order

The menu has food options printed in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean. Customers should definitely try the restaurant’s specialty Oyako Don. People who dislike chicken may like to try Kinugasa Don or Kitsune Don, which do not contain chicken. Large portions are available for ¥150 extra.

- Order Tips -
It is best to order as quickly as possible when there are a lot of people waiting to get in to the restaurant. Men will find a rice dish and a Small Zaru Soba to be perfectly filling.
