Gion Yorozuya

Shunchan

Dec 8, 2016

Gion Yorozuya is a small but famous noodle shop in Gion Shijo, Kyoto.

It’s just a short walk from the big street of Gion and is popular among famous Kabuki actors and Geisha.

My favorite item on the menu is the ‘Green Onion Udon’, topped with plenty of ginger (about 1100 yen). The green onion is Kujo leek (super sweet!) and the dashi soup (made with dried bonito and kelp) is rich and flavorful.

The restaurant is always crowded with a long line outside, so expect to wait. But trust me – it’s totally worth it. You won’t get to taste authentic Kyoto udon anywhere else in the world!

祇園四条にある小さいけれど京都でとても有名なうどん屋さん。

有名な歌舞伎俳優や舞妓さんも通う京うどんの名店で、祇園の大きな通りから少し入ったところにあります。

オススメは、看板メニューの生姜と九条ネギたっぷりのシンプルな「ねぎうどん」(*1100円程度)。九条ねぎは伝統的な京野菜のひとつで、シャキシャキしていてとても甘みがあります。スープは出汁が効いていて、非常に味わい深いです。大人気店のため行列ができることも多いため、時間に余裕を持って訪れると良いでしょう。

京都の本当の味を知りたいという方はぜひ訪れてみてください。
