Yamamoto Menzou



★ ★ ★ ★ ★

When it comes to Yamamoto Menzou be ready to lineup outside their shop. Is like a pilgrimage of locals, people from around Japan and lately some foreigners since the "rumor" spread around that here you can taste the best Udon in Kyoto. Their famous udon noddles are daily homemade and just cooked before serving each client. The noodles here are slightly slimmer and the texture elastic. Their signature dish is the Burdock Tempura and some people like to combine with the special curry. Another common dish is the fried chicken breast with udon. NOTE: Last year, the shop start to give a ticket with your approximate eating time when you arrive and place the order, leaving you time to go around and have a walk and return when nearly is your time. We recommend you to be conservative in order to don't miss your time and come slightly earlier than the time written on the ticket. It well worth the waiting time and is a test for Japan Gourmet Pass holders who love Udon.
