Gen (玄)

4.0

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.

Reviewed:2020/08/30 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。
Reviewed:2020/04/09 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。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
