Demachiyanagi is located in a triangular area where the Kamo and Takano Rivers merge to form the Kamo River and Imadegawa Street crosses it. Convenient to Shimogamo Shrine, a World Heritage Site, and also known as the starting point for the Kurama and Kibune areas, one of Kyoto’s most popular tourist attractions, Demachiyanagi Station on the Keihan Electric Railway line is crowded with many tourists on weekends.
Did you know that there is an excellent omelette restaurant near Demachiyanagi Station that has been in business for a long time and is highly rated by Tabelog and Gurunavi?
Omura House Demachiyanagi Branch｜Omelette rice specialty restaurant located in Demachiyanagi, the starting point of sightseeing in Kyoto
Walking from the station in the direction of Hyakumanben, the tourist mood suddenly fades away and you enter a quiet and simple residential area. Omura House Demachiyanagi Branch is located just after entering this area, and there are customers waiting to enter the restaurant outside during both lunch and dinner hours, so even if you are not sure how to get there, you will be able to find it relatively quickly.
The restaurant is rather spacious and does not feel crowded, with four or five tables for four people and four counter seats in front of the kitchen… It seems to be crowded mainly with students who live nearby, but you can eat alone without feeling uncomfortable at all.
Omura House’s recommendation “Toro Yuba Omelette rice”: original menu with a Japanese taste and the aroma of celery and wasabi.
The omelette I ordered this time is “Toroyuba Omelette rice”, a recommended menu item at Omura House…
The egg on the surface is cooked until it passes through the thickened state, which is disappointing for customers expecting a thickened egg… but don’t worry, the fresh yuba takes the role of the egg. You can enjoy a slightly different form of tenderness than that of the egg.
Cracking open the inside…what’s inside is barley rice. Hijiki, deep-fried tofu, carrots, celery, and onions are included as ingredients, and it looks healthy to the eye. Thanks to the inclusion of barley, the rice does not become sticky, but rather breaks apart and provides a new texture for an omelette.
The special dashi sauce is spread over the bowl of omelette rice. The wasabi flavor is perfectly controlled, with just the right amount of flavor, but not too much. The use of celery and other savory vegetables is very well done. Of course, if you are not a fan of wasabi or celery, you can have them removed if you let them know in advance.
If anything, the Toroyuba Omurice is more like a creative Japanese dish than an omelet. If you like new things, why don’t you give it a try?
Omura House has a total of 14 types of menu with a wide variety of sauces… Paying by credit card and using coupons make accounting even more convenient.
