Story & Recommendation
Enjoy soba noodles and a drink in the center of Kyoto at Nakanokoan
To get to Kyoto Nakanokoan you have to walk Teradamachi-dori Street south for 5 minutes from Hankyu Kawaramachi station. At first look the place looks like an expensive a la carte restaurant that one would never think a soba noodle place. The predominant color of the trendy-looking restaurant is black making it a perfect place for a date as well as casual dinners. There are plenty of seats and enough space for strollers so the restaurant can also be recommended for families. The greatest appeal of the restaurant has to be that you can enjoy soba noodles, a la carte menu, and sake in the same place. It is not often that you find as interesting a restaurant as this. Their soba noodles are hand made every day in the noodle making room that is next to the bar counter. The springy udon noodles made with care are a joy to bite into. You can also have delicious duck grilled over coals, or Tamba’s famous chicken and vegetables grown in Kyoto prepared as tempura. You can’t taste all the delicacies of Nakanokoan in one visit; you have to come again and again to taste everything on the menu. It is also fun to choose a sake to go with the dishes from their extensive list of Japanese rice wine. Some people just have a drink at the bar counter and afterward head home without having eaten anything. This restaurant can be a soba noodle place, an ala carte restaurant, or an izakaya depending on the situation and need.

The restaurant doesn’t close after lunch, so it is the perfect place to enjoy some afternoon sake.
