A stone-baked Oyakodon … I heard that name for the first time and I wondered …
Why do you bother making fluffy egg oyakodon?
But when I actually try it …
Wabiya Korekido ｜ A Gion Hanamikoji chicken restaurant specializing a famous stone-baked Oyakodon
Before going to the food repo as it is, let’s first introduce the shop. Wabiya Korekido is a chicken specialty store with its main store in Gion Hanamikoji, Kyoto. It has the same management base as Marulanche in Kitayama, famous for “ tea confectionery ”. In addition to Gion Hanamikoji main store, Namba Dining Maison store in Takashimaya Osaka, Kushikatsu specialty store in PontochoWabiya Rakuchutei, Teppanyaki There are also branches with different personalities, such as the Wabiya Sanmai inside the main station of Kyoto Station.
Also, according to the store’s website, it seems that they had also been shopping online at the online shop until September, before the consumption tax rose (it will resume in April next year). You can see that Kashiwa Juice Soba is also exhibited at Rakuten Shops, and that you may be willing to take on new challenges in spite of its old-fashioned store name. Because it is such a shop, the idea of Ishinaki Oyakodon seems to be “I see …”
A stone-baked Oyakodon is a special menu only for lunch time.
A stone-baked Oyakodon offered by Wabiya Korekido is a specialty menu of Wabiya that is offered only at lunchtime. The word of mouth of the eating log is also good, and the line of customers is before the opening of the store with the aim of Ishiyaki Oyakodon, which was also featured in the TV program Hirnandez … As customers come one after another, the line becomes longer We recommend that you visit the store as soon as possible (reservations are not possible).
The shop has a total of 15 L-shaped counter seats along the kitchen. There are private rooms on the second floor, but they are only open at night and are not used at lunchtime. The atmosphere is western style, contrary to the image of the store name, and a fan with the names of Maiko and Geisha are displayed on the wall like a store in Gion.
Wabiya Korekido’s specialty menu, “Ishiyaki (stone-baked) Oyakodon”: A great value dish that offers all kinds of egg dishes, from high-quality egg-cooked rice to fried rice with rice.
By the way, when I sit down and look at the menu, it seems that lunchtime only offers Ishiyaki Oyakodon. You can order an Oyakodon set with a drink, but basically you can choose Oyakodon. The price is 1500 yen for Oyakodon alone, and 1750 yen for a set (both excluding tax).
Stone grilled pots are delivered one after another in the order in which they entered the store. Chicken, onions and trefoil are topped with white rice laid on the bottom of the pot. Two more eggs dropped on it. It is placed in front of you in this state, and then the clerk will do the final cooking.
Look at the actual cooking …
Luxurious Oyakodon using a total of three red eggs from Kyoto and Tamba. First of all, if you start from the middle part of the mouth, it is a high quality egg rice with rich eggs. In addition to the richness of the eggs, the slight addition of heat activates the umami of the eggs, bringing out a unique flavor that cannot be eaten normally.
Then the chicken is pickled. Just burning in advance with charcoal fire in advance, the fragrance spreads in the mouth. The sauce is seasoned with sauce, and you can even feel the illusion of eating a barbecue.
And as time goes on, the heat gradually increases on the rice-coated eggs. The place where it became semi-ripe is the usual Oyakodon time. In addition to enjoying soft-boiled soft-boiled eggs, you can use the last raw egg to make new soft-boiled eggs with the residual heat of a stone-roasting pot, or eat it as a scrambled egg.
When you have finished eating the central part, try scraping the egg rice on the surface of the stone fryer. Egg rice that has been drained by the residual heat of the pot has a texture like fried rice and gives us new pleasure. If you wait a long time, the crispness of the crispness will come on. You can enjoy the taste of various egg dishes with this one dish.
One more. In the image below, a cloudy liquid appears with taste-changing items such as pickles, powdered pepper, and black shrimp …
In fact, this is a chicken soup for one cup of Ochazuke. Of course, you can drink the soup as it is, but if you take a little egg and go around the soup with chopped laver, you will be able to enjoy even the chicken pickles … What an interesting oyakodon! Traditional Oyakodon, which contains soft-boiled soft-boiled eggs, is good, but I also think that these idea-based Oyakodon may be included in the lunch options.
Wabiya Korekido also sells lunches only at Kyoto Station and Isetan … If you can’t enjoy Kyoto gourmet enough, how about a chicken cutlet lunch at the station lunch?
One good news for those who didn’t have enough time to fully enjoy Kyoto gourmet … Wabiya Korekido also sells a station lunch named “fluffy egg chicken cutlet lunch (1134 yen including tax)”. At the moment, it can only be bought at the stand on the Shinkansen premises of Kyoto Station or at the lunch box on the second basement floor of Isetan directly connected to the station. It may sell out very quickly, so it’s a good idea to keep it as soon as you find it.
I ate it in the Shinkansen car…
The ingredients are 8 bite-sized chicken cutlets, egg rags, curry-flavored cabbage, sweet stewed onions, and two types of pickles. It is terrible to expect a freshly crispy cutlet because it is a station lunch, but a moist chicken cutlet that can be eaten delicious even if it is kept cool in the refrigerator is also good. Cabbage tasted like curry flavor and individuality like Wabiya Kogakudo. There seems to be some negative reviews on this curry flavor, but if you add the included sweet soy sauce sauce, you will almost never bother with the curry flavor.
Dinner time with course meals … Access to Wabiya Korekido is a 6-minute walk from the nearest station, Keihan Electric Railway / Gion Shijo Station
