Okazaki-dori is home to Yamamoto Menzo and Okakita and Udon, but there is also a western restaurant where you can get in a row. Grill Kodakara is a long-established western restaurant founded in 1961, and its specialty omurice seems to be highly appreciated in word of mouth…
Grill Kodakara | A long-established Western restaurant in Kyoto that makes a line at lunchtime with a specialty omurice
Grill Kodakara is located on the right side, one block north of the area where Yamamoto Menzo and Okakita are located. Okazaki-michi, which has several queues in a short distance from Nijo to Marutamachi … I think this is a rather rare gourmet spot nationwide, but fortunately the grill Kodakara is different from the other two, If you remove the line at lunchtime, you will feel relatively easy to enter without lining up.
There is a large table in the center of the store, and there are a total of eight table seats for two to four people around the wall surrounding it. Is it possible to accommodate about 30 people? There is plenty of space between the tables so you don’t have to worry.
Children’s lunch is 1350 yen. Grilled small treasure on a luxury line, the secret of popularity is a special dovi sauce made over about 3 weeks
When you sit down and look at the menu, most dishes are priced slightly more than 1000 yen per dish. Above all, I was a little surprised that the lunch for children was 1350 yen, “It’s expensive.

That said, there are still some reasons why many customers are coming. Perhaps one of the reasons is the grilled Koba special dobi sauce, which takes about three weeks to make.
How to make it is published on the shop website, so if you are interested, please click the link at the end of the article. Add beef streaks, onions, and carrots to the bouillon, slowly cook over low heat, and add tomato ketchup and spania on the way. You can see the process up to completion of the Dovi sauce with images every day.
This dobi sauce is also used properly in the omurice ordered this time. What taste does it have? Very interesting…
Omurice: Rich dobuce sauce entangled with low-acidity ketchup rice … Recommended menu of grilled small treasure is a bitter adult taste
Let’s introduce Omurice, a recommended menu of grilled small treasures. Unlike Omura Rice’s original omelet, the grilled small treasure omelet is a traditional orthodox omelet. You can choose from three types of sizes: small, medium and large. According to the shop owner, there are volumes of 400 g for small, 700 g for medium and 1200 g for large serving.
Order around 1200g without any hesitation and order a large omelet (price: 1570 yen) (take-out is OK even if you can’t eat it). It was carried relatively soon after ordering. I’m a little surprised at the speed …
The size of omurice, can you tell in this image? Imagine the size of the cup and spoon behind. A huge omurice whose edge protrudes from a white plate. The height is as high as 10 cm or more, and its presence is outstanding. In the center is a chocolate-colored dovi sauce. The green peas can be seen through the egg.
Then, the actual food … the eggs on the surface are thinly baked, and it is not a trendy simmered poached egg omelet but an old-fashioned familiar style. The ketchup price is tightly packed in it, and a sense of weight that is not just transmitted from the plate.
That said, the sourness of the tomato ketchup is modest and refreshing, so you can advance the spoon and spoon without getting tired on the way. The ingredients are as simple as green peas, onions, and shredded meat, but the grilled omelet also features beef as well as pork.
And it’s time for Dobi Sauce. A bitter taste for adults that combines the richness of Demigrass sauce with a unique bitterness when scooped into the mouth from the sauce pool dripping from eggs. If you feel unsatisfactory with the modest ketchup taste, try putting this dobi sauce on your mouth. With Dobi Sauce, the moist feeling is added to the omurice, and it is guaranteed that the movement of the spoon will be further accelerated. (By the way, it seems that the amount of sauce can be doubled for this Dovi Sauce, +160 yen).
The hamburger with this dobi sauce would be absolutely delicious … I think it is likely that the hamburger will be revisited in the near future.
Watch out for the waiter’s way of pouring water! Access to Grill Kodakara is a 15-minute walk from the nearest station, Kyoto Municipal Subway Higashiyama Station
As an aside, the waiter of the grilled treasure. It is characterized by the operation when pouring cold into a cup. Pour water from a place that is much higher than the glass, and finally, to make the water drain better, or the ice inside is gush! Return the water supply pot to its original position as quickly as it sounds. It’s not enough to spread it on the net, but if you ever go to grill treasures, keep an eye out.
