G read that there is a famous soba noodle shop (has been in existence for over 500 years!!) close to the Imperial Palace (where the Emperor eats each time he is in town) and with a branch in Kawaramachi. The address given simply said it was in the basement of Shijo Center. We found Shijo Center but the lady in the shop said no basement - and it didn't looked like there was a basement. So, feeling defeated, we were about to leave to look for dinner elsewhere when G spotted a set of stairs by the shop. Voila! We found it!
|The kids ordered the Oyako Donburi, rice topped with scrambled egg, chicken and Japanese leek. It was so good, the kids polished off everything!|
|I ordered a Ten Seiro, soba noodle with assorted tempura.|
