Tried this udon shop near Fushimi Inari taisha. We had the summer specials: COLD udon. And it was delicious!! The udon or soba is handmade so its really chewy. Everything for around 1000¥ or less and there was no wait when we went, around 1pm.

Service is great!

No wifi but there is free public wifi.

From the shrine you need to walk pass two railroad crossings before you get to the restaurant. Few tables so it might be queue.

We ate their homemade noddles with pork and with chicken. Both very tasty. My wife tried the cold noodles. Also very tasty. Final bill, one of the lowest in our whole stay. Worth visiting.

We found this gem while visiting the Fushimi Inari area. We ordered the set meals that included cold/hot udon and oyako-don (scrambled egg and chicken over rice), and they were all excellent! The udon is “chewy” (in a good way that’s associated with handmade udon). We arrived at around 11:30am and waited for 5 mins. Great place to go for lunch before/after your trip to Fushimi Inari Taisha!

There was huge line for this udon place, I had to wait about 30 minutes to get into the place. The waitress lady is very nice and communicative. There are selections from cold udon to hot udon. As for the Hiyashi udon, they also come in sets. There are selections combination from udon + rice dishes (it was egg or something) sorry, we didnt order the rice dish so I can't tell you much about it.

We ordered the chicken udon (hot), beef udon (udon), fried tofu udon (hot), and zaru udon (cold). All the soup based udons have the same soup. It was delicious. However, the cold udon, was a little tough for me. It was chewy and a little hard on the center. It was cooked, just chewy I supposed. You can also really tell from the texture, that it was truly home-made. So, give it a try if you are willing to wait in line.
