We had dinner here at the end of our walk down the Philosopher's Path. It was early evening in late December, quite cold, and the meal was just perfect. The servings are generous but not too much for one hungry person to handle. I decided...More

The udon here is amazing! It's not like any other udon I've tried. It's served with yuzu, which adds a lot of flavor and the texture is perfectly chewy, and you can tell it was freshly handmade. The restaurant also had such a nice atmosphere...More

So this is how udon is supposed to be! The fresh noodles have a remarkable texture with a bit more “bite” and “chew” than the store-bought stuff. The simple dipping broth is enhanced with flavorings of your choosing, and only gets better as you continue...More

Located near Ginkaku-ji and the Philosopher's Walk. Very popular and always has a line. Delicious udon served with all of the traditional condiments. Special mention goes to the seasonal kamo (duck) udon with tender slices of duck breast and a robust broth.

면발이나 셋팅이나 이 정도의 우동은 서울에서도 여러 군데에서 맛볼 수 있음. 근처에 간다면 몰라도 일부러 찾아가서 먹을 필요는 없을듯함. Noodles,or presentation can be found in several places in Seoul. It might be worth while to visit this place if you happen to be in Ginkauji...More

Omen sounds like a horror movie, but it’s just a version of udon, and a particularly good omen at that. Multiple choices of hot and cold noodles available - tried the tempura and sides of pumpkin, ginger, onion and ample sesame in old broth. Beverage...More
