Kyoto city, especially Sakyo Ward, is known as an area with many delicious udon and soba restaurants.The shop we are introducing this time is also a famous udon shop in Sakyo Ward.In the nearby Okazaki areaYamamoto Menzo,Okakita,GontaroDespite the fact that there is a famous udon restaurant, this one is better for curry udon!There are many reviews that ...
"Hinode Udon" has been open since 1957 on the north side of Nanzenji Temple, a tourist attraction in Kyoto city.Despite being in an inconvenient location, it is a popular store where many customers line up every day before it opens.
When I arrived at the store just before 11 o'clock on a weekday, it was just opening and inviting customers into the store.Unfortunately, I couldn't get the first round on that day, so I decided to wait for a while outside the store ... There were about 4 customers in front of me, and I was able to enter the store with a waiting time of about 30 minutes.
The inside of the store was small, and there were 6 table seats in the audience.Please note that there is a possibility of sharing a table during busy times.The atmosphere is really a normal udon restaurant, and you can feel the warmth and simplicity.
Special curry udon: The finest menu of curry udon with rice, beef, and Kujo green onions ... How is the taste?
Now, let's take a quick look at Hinode Udon's proud curry udon.On this day, I ordered the special curry udon (price: 1050 yen including tax), which is the highest quality curry udon menu.Most customers seemed to have ordered this special curry udon, despite the extensive menu of udon, soba, and rice bowls.
There are several variations of curry udon, and you can choose from three types of noodles: udon, soba, and Chinese noodles, and you can also choose from three types: medium spicy, medium spicy, and dry.Looking around, the Chinese noodle version seems to be quite popular, but I chose udon and dry for orthodox ...
From the bowl, there is an indescribable scent of a blend of curry and Japanese-style soup stock.Isn't it okay to give the Nobel Prize to the person who first came up with curry udon?I think ...
Then, first take a bite of the soup stock ... The thick soup stock is rich, and you can clearly feel the taste of bonito soup stock as well as the spices of curry. Not only homemade curry powder, which is a blend of 15 kinds of spices, wheat flour, and lard, but also bonito broth that is as good as it ... How can you get such a strong broth flavor?Although it is dry, it is not so spicy for me, but the soup stock alone has a very addictive taste that makes me want to drink it.
The noodles that are fully covered with this curry soup stock are Kyoto-based udon noodles that are soft and chewy.It's easy to bite off when you mumble, but it feels good to eat again.Yamamoto Menzou's Sanuki udon noodles are also good, but this one gives you a more Kyoto-like feel.
In addition to this, sweetly seasoned beef (ideal for restoring the feeling of the tongue covered with curry spices), curry soup stock that has been sufficiently sucked up, and crispy Kujo Negi are included in the bowl. ..The volume is also perfect, and I think that especially female customers can often eat until the end.
I also love this curry udon.However, unfortunately, access is a little inconvenient, and since it is open only during the day, the chances of going to the store are limited.I wish there was an environment where I could eat more easily.
However, unlike other popular stores, Hinode Udon does not have the business spirit of starting sales and mail order of half-life udon noodles for souvenirs, opening branches, collaborating with convenience stores, etc. (In the first place, There isn't even a store homepage).Well, that's also the point that I like Kyoto.
That's why there are some physically high hurdles to get to the curry udon here, but if you have a chance, please try it.it's recommended.
Bus is convenient because it is far from the station ... Access to Hinode Udon is a 15-minute walk from the nearest station, Kyoto Municipal Subway Keage Station.
Hinode Udon is such a place, but the place where the shop is located is a 15-minute walk from the nearest station, Kyoto Municipal Subway Keage Station, and it is a bit difficult to walk.
If you want to eat only curry udon without sightseeing at Nanzenji Temple or Eikando, it is convenient to use the bus from JR Kyoto Station, Hankyu Karasuma Station, Keihan Sanjo Station, etc.The nearest bus stop is Higashi Tennocho, and you can reach the shop in a few minutes on foot south from there.There is a parking lot for the time being, but it will fill up quickly because there are only a few cars, and there seems to be no coin parking around, so we do not recommend visiting by car.
