1. Kendonya [Fukakusa Ichinotsubocho]
Kendonya, located around the Fushimi Inari area is where you can enjoy delicious hand-kneaded udon noodles using original flour! The udon noodles have a chewy texture and is filling. The broth soup has a light taste which is a characteristic of the Kansai region but has a strong flavor that fills your mouth. Since this is in Fushimi Inari, we recommend the kitsune udon (udon with deep fried tofu pouch)!
