Noodles in Downtown Kyoto

This casual restaurant in the Sanjō covered arcade serves a variety of soba and udon (thick white wheat noodles) dishes. It can get crowded at lunchtime and the service can be rather brusque, but the noodles are very good and the English/picture menu helps with ordering. The tempura teishoku (set meal) makes a great lunch.
