Enjoy the traditional flavor of soba noodles and rich broth.

HONKE OWARIYA started in 1465, having been open for more than 550 years.
The fixed days- off are on Jan 1 and 2.
Not only Kyoto-ites and but also tourists from foreign countries come over to enjoy soba.

They have quite a few menus such as soba noodles, Japanese sweets made from soba, and other Donburi, a bowl of cooked rice with some ingredients on top or in it.

You can also drink alcoholic beverages; sake and shochu distilled from wheat, sweet potatoes, and rice.
There are three restaurants of HONKE OWARIYA in Kyoto.
Honten, five minutes’ walk from Karasuma-Oike station, Kyoto City Subway(METRO).
Shijo-ten, five minutes’ walk from Shijo-Kawaramachi Station, Hankyu Railway.
Takashimaya-ten, on the 7th floor of Department Store Takashimaya.
Each restaurant has its own open hours.
The menus they have are almost the same.

The prices are as follows:
Horai Soba (Honke Owariya’s specialty) 2,160 JPY
Horai literally means Coming of Treasures.
Having this soba will enable you to win and obtain good fortune, probably.
Tempura Soba, with deep-fried shrimps and vegetables in batter on top 1,620 JPY
Tori-Namba Soba, with boiled chicken and Kujo-Negi, Kyoto’s special green onion, on top 1,026 JPY
Kitsune-Don, a bowl of rice with cooked deeply-fried tofu and Kujo-negi on it 756 JPY Oyako-Don, a bowl of rice with cooked chicken and eggs 1,026 JPY
Oyako literally means parents and children.
Tokoroten, Japanese jelly-like sweet with sweet honey on top 432 JPY

We must wait for 30 or 40 minutes until just taking seats during lunch time.
We also need more waiting time on weekends and holidays.
