Just along Kitayama Dori and not too far from Horikawa Dori in Kyoto is a famous soba noodle restaurant called Ogawa. And it’s not just recognized by the locals. Even the 2020 Michelin Guide has given its blessing, awarding Ogawa with one Michelin star. Ogawa is always crowded with customers who are craving delicious buckwheat noodles. The people in line are from all around the country, some traveling here just for a bowl of soba at this restaurant.
Ogawa’s shop was previously an old house and has recently been renovated to a more modern aesthetic. Yet, its culturally rich atmosphere still lingers in the air, adding authenticity to the dining experience here.
This soba restaurant has a variety of dishes on their menu, including a roasted miso appetizer. One dish that’s extremely popular among locals and visitors alike is the duck seiro. If you’re a soba lover and looking for a revolutionary soba restaurant, look no further than Ogawa in Kyoto.
