Gen

Soba / Udon
Gen is a soba noodle restaurant located in Fukuchiin Town, Nara City. At lunchtime you can try their fragrant Juwari-soba (100% buckwheat flour), although they only make 40 bowls of this soul satisfying soba each day. You’ll need to book a table for the evening and it’s only available for just two groups. A course of soba noodles is served for guests lucky enough to get a table. This Michelin starred restaurant is particularly well known.

  • 美味しい

    平日予約せず行ってみたところ、大半が予約しているようで、偶然にも空いていたのですぐに入れた。田舎蕎麦は香りが良く、そのままでも、塩でも美味しく、空腹なら2枚は食べられそう。
  • つゆの味が濃いです

    館内は50年以上前の懐かしい雰囲気。値段高めですがクレジットカード使用不可。蕎麦の味はまぁまぁ美味しい。が、つゆの味が濃すぎて蕎麦湯で割って丁度良かった。期待が強かった分、アレ?って感じでした。
  • きっと、上品なお味。

    極細の麺で食べたことのない食感です。繊細な感じ。十割そばにしては、香りがかんjきられません。そばの他に、そば豆腐、そば饅頭を頂きました。インパク問わないが上品なお味。どれも、少量で物足りないが、ならまちのお店巡りをするにはちょうどいいかな。料金が高くてびっくりしました。
