Nishikiya Honten

Reviewed By OhenrosanKK

ここはレストランだけでなく、土産物販売や工芸品の作成体験等、いろいろなことが出来る施設でした。今日はセット旅行の昼食に。実価格が不詳なので費用対効果の評価はし難い状態ですが・・・このセット旅行の昼食が2回に1回はバス車中弁当と云う極めて安価な「粗末」な昼食であることから推測すると、ここで食べる昼食の価格もたかが知れていると云う程度のものと思われます。その基準で行くと「普通」程度の昼食かな?。但し、自分で個別にここへ入店したら、とてもこんなものは注文しない、と思う程度のものであったことも事実。お品書き看板等も参考にしているとここはリーズナブルな食堂とも云える。味も内容も今一のものだが・・。失礼ながら、隣接している(多分、ここが経営している?)コンビニの方が必要なものが多かった。

Udon-Ya Inoue

Reviewed By AFHamm

This is the best udon I have ever had, granted I am not Japanese; however, I have frequented many of the best Japanese restaurants in Japan and elsewhere. The texture of the udon was thick and uneven, unlike processed udon in most restaurants. The best udon we tried was with a raw egg (tamago) and spring onion (negi) mixed with fresh hot udon, with a bit of soy sauce and some flakes on top. The consistency when mixed becomes thick and flavorful, akin to a good carbonara in Rome. There is no English menu and the owner does not speak English. Since we didn't know where to start, we picked the most expensive and highest calorie item on the menu (she lists the calories under each dish!), and she said the word tamago which we knew meant egg. We also tried the plain udon with soy sauce (生) and the udon with soup, but neither was as good as the udon with raw egg. There are no udon options with meat, as far as we could tell. All udons are around 400 yen, or 4 dollars. Our concierge at the ryokan Kotahira Kadan told us about this place. He said it's better than the places near the shrine, and I think he's right. Note this place is just across the river - about a 5 to 10 min walk from the shrine entrance street. There are only 2 tables and 3 seats at the bar.

Toraya Soba

Reviewed By 26waynew

This restaurant is over 400 years old and offers a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a wonderful udon noodle lunch. The staff were very friendly and were happy to explain the background and history of this wonderful old building. Our meal was delicious and very reasonably priced.

Minato

Reviewed By 901dh

The claim to fame of Kompira is the temple and that means it gets very touristy. For this reason, often restaurants disappoint, but not so Minato. An imaginative menu, with everything well and freshly prepared, with great service. Good sake choices as well. Go for something char grilled and you'll be very pleased. Can't rate this place highly enough.

Honetsukitori Tanakaya

Reviewed By 60726Nicky_11

One of the only restaurants open at night in Kotohira, there is frequently a waiting line at the door. The grilled chicken, about Yen 800 or $7 for a large piece is tasty and large enough for one, if accompanied by a side or two. i recommend the sliced tomato salad (about $2) which goes well with the grilled chicken. I ordered one or two other sides that were to Japanese but not to my Western taste. Without Japanese it might get sticky here since they are pleasant but a so busy that they don't need a distracting, confused foreigner.
