Another restaurant operated by Kyoto Chinese Hamamura is located in Miyakomichi, a commercial facility under Kyoto Station on the Kintetsu Kyoto Line. Located just below the Shinkansen platform, it is an extremely convenient 3-minute walk to the ticket gate. Here, you can enjoy Kyoto Chinese food until the very last minute before the Shinkansen departs.
Like Chinese Cuisine Hamamura, this restaurant offers a set menu with ramen as the main dish. The menu also includes a few a la carte dishes. The menu lists Hamamura’s famous spring rolls, but the images show that they are not the traditional bamboo shoot spring rolls, but regular spring rolls. This is unfortunate…so instead, let me introduce you to another dish that is representative of Kyoto Chinese cuisine…
Karashi Soba: The Japanese mustard gives a tingle to the nose…Although there are different tastes, it is a dish that cannot be missed when talking about Kyoto style Chinese cuisine.
That dish is ” Karashi Soba (priced at 950 yen + tax). As you can read, it contains Japanese mustard. This dish is not for those who do not like mustard, but it is still a dish that cannot be missed when talking about Kyoto style Chinese cuisine.
A unique Kyo-Chinese dish of boiled Chinese noodles tossed with seasoned Japanese mustard and finished with a salty starchy sauce. There are six kinds of ingredients: lettuce, green onion, carrot, kikurage mushroom, shrimp, and chicken meat. As the waiter said, “Stir the noodles thoroughly…” The noodles are dug up and thoroughly tossed with the starchy sauce before serving.
When you slurp the noodles vigorously, you can feel the salty taste of the ankake and at the same time, the stimulation of the Japanese garlic taste penetrates through your nose. This stimulation is quite strong. It is not spicy by any means, but the stimulation to the nose is quite strong. Personally, I think this “gap between the stimulation to the nose and the taste” is interesting, but I am sure there are different tastes.
Even among Kyo-Chinese dishes, which are usually lightly seasoned, this mustard-soba is a little stimulating. You might want to bring some pocket tissues when you try it.
If you want to enjoy Kyoto style Chinese food before boarding the Shinkansen, this is the place to go… Kyo no Chuka Hamamura is located in Miyakomichi, a commercial facility inside JR Kyoto Station.
