Continuing the taste of the first generation while adding new taste of Kyoto

“Let’s stop by and eat at Okakita.”  Since opening its door in 1940, Okakita has been loved by local people for over 70 years for their Kyoto-style udon and soba noodles.  The secret is their homemade broth which was finally achieved by the efforts of the first generation owner, who spent 17 years to attain it during his training period, and the second generation owner, who also spent many years.  Its delicate and complex taste goes perfectly with handmade thin noodles topped with fu (wheat gluten), Kyoto vegetables and yuba (bean curd skin).  One of the most popular menu items is the Kitsune Udon noodles.  A sheet of deep-fried tofu is cooked in sweetened soy sauce brought from a nearby tofu specialty shop every morning.  The deep-fried tofu and plenty of shredded green onion match perfectly.  A variety of rice bowls is also a must-try!
