One of the best noodles I ever came across + 90’s JPop + friendly staff = must visit in Kyoto if you are a fan of Udon.

Visited twice since I couldn’t get a seat the first time. Do try to eat in the main store rather than the take-out place if you can. Menu and the experience is different.

By 10-11am seats have been booked already - mostly by local

Tempura baedok is the best pair with udon

Great udon place, one of the best I have been to. Not known for tourists, a hole in the wall but awesome udon.
