This elegant noodle shop is named after the thick white noodles that are served in broth with a selection of seven fresh vegetables. Just say omen and you’ll be given your choice of hot or cold noodles, a bowl of soup to dip them in and a plate of vegetables (put these into the soup along with sesame seeds).

There's also an extensive à la carte menu. You can get a fine salad here, brilliant tori sansho yaki (chicken cooked with Japanese mountain spice), good tempura and occasionally a nice plate of sashimi. Best of all, there’s an English menu. It’s about five minutes’ walk from Ginkaku-ji in a traditional Japanese house with a lantern outside. Highly recommended.
