    Honke Owariya

    Long-established soba restaurant loved by Kyoto people

    Opened more than 540 years ago, Honke Owariya supplied soba buckwheat noodles to the Imperial Palace in the Edo period (1600-1868).  The broth made with the local groundwater is excellent and has been loved by citizens in Kyoto for centuries.  Rikyu-soba (noodles topped with deep-fried wheat gluten) was created by Denzaemon, the present 15th generation owner, and can be enjoyed only at Honke Owariya.  Located in central Kyoto, on Kurumayacho Nijo in Nakagyo ward, they welcome diners to their classical Japanese atmosphere with a tea ceremony room, casual table seats and traditional Japanese-style rooms.  Rikyu-soba (photo): 1,155 yen.
