Kishimen Noodles at "Sarashina Honten"

"Kishimen Noodles" is known as a local gourmet of Nagoya.

I would like to introduce "Sarashina Honten (Main Store)" in Shinkyogoku where we can enjoy Kyoto pre-made Kishimen Noodles.

A long-established store established in 1874, the slogan is "Hirari, Tsururi, Perori".

Although it is a long-established restaurant, it is a popular restaurant where we can enjoy homemade Nadai "Kishimen Noodles" at a reasonable price.

"Kishimen Noodles (hot)" is the signature product with fluffy dried bonito flakes on top of large aburaage.

I came here to take this, but I saw the word "感謝セール (thank-you sale)".

In March, "にしんそば (Nishin Soba : Soba Noodle Soup With Herring)" "にしんきしめん (Nishin Kishimen : Kishimen Noodle Soup With Herringnoodles)" and "にしんうどん (Nishin Udon : Udon Noodle Soup With Herring)" are offered at special prices.

Then I had the Kyoto specialty, "Nishin Kishimen Noodle".

Kyoto's Kujo Negi (green onion) and Kishimen Noodles with Herring cooked salty-sweet are fluttering and smooth.

It was truly "Hirari, Tsururi, Perori", and I enjoyed the flavorful soup stock of dried bonito flakes.

The popular "Ankake Tanuki Kishimen (Tanuki Kishimen Noodles with Thick Starchy Sauce)" is Kyoto-style Ikishimen which is a big deep-fried bean curd with a thick sauce.

"Kayaku Kishimen (Kishimen Noodle Soup with some ingredients" is used Kamaboko from Teramachi-Sanjo "Ibarakiya".

This Kishimen Noodle is also served with wheat gluten, Kyoto Yuba, and homemade Shiitake mushroom, and we can enjoy Kyoto tastes.

We can eat not only Kishimen but also Udon, Noodles, Soba Noodles and Donburi rice at "Sarashina Main Store".

The sign and the chopsticks bag say "新京極御用極製棊子麺處更科本店 (Shinkyogoku Goyogokusei Kinkimen Sarashina Main Store)".

I learned for the first time that "Kishimen noodles" is written in Kanji as "棊子麺".
