Story & Recommendation
Okaru is a restaurant specializing in udon noodles that is open very late and is favored both by maiko and famous people
On a small alley in Gion, you can find Okaru, an udon noodle restaurant. The restaurant looks very Kyoto-like and has been in business for almost 100 years; it was founded in 1925. They are most famous for their curry udon. Their curry udon brings to you the triple punch of spices, bonito-dashi, and the chewy texture of the noodles. Curry noodles with beef and cheese is a classic at the restaurant; almost everyone orders this dish. They also offer hot pot noodles and rice bowls, so I’m sure that they have something for everyone. They are open until very late, and if you’re lucky, you may have a chance to see a real maiko at the restaurant!
