Fabulous atmosphere and udon from Kyoto in Keyaki Kurosawa

Eating udon at Kurosawa is a unique experience as such. You will be lucky if you find one of the shops in Roppongi or Roppongi Hills area. They are very inconspicuous and you really need to know what you are looking for – the sign くろさわ.KurosawaUdon at Kurosawa is not your typical Tokyo noodles. It is Kyoto-style, tastes lighter, and therefore is preferable for most women. But I still don’t come there alone, only with my husband. Our usual choice includes curry udon.KurosawaNo matter what kind of noodles you order, you will need a bib to protect your clothes. The staff will give it to you. In summer, especially in the hottest months, you will also get fans and a big jug of mugicha, traditional cooling beverage.KurosawaLast summer we experienced the horror of a broken air conditioner at Kurosawa Udon, but this was not that great of a sacrifice for immersing yourself into the interior of an old Kyoto-style house.KurosawaIt was designed by Akira Kurosawa’s art team, and is run by the famous director’s son, Hisao Kurosawa. Keep your eye peeled for the memorabilia!

Sometimes we also order oden dishes or menchikatsu, a fried meat cake. Seasonal menu always brings in something interesting for a change.KurosawaThey even invented a deity of udon at Kurosawa Udon!KurosawaAs this restaurant is conveniently sitting between Azabu-Juban and Roppongi Hills, it is easily accessed from both stations. If you are staying at Grand Hyatt, you may want to check out the other branch of Kurosawa Udon near the hotel.Kurosawa
