If you are a fan of udon, Myodai Omen Kodaiji is a good place to check out after sightseeing in Kiyomizu-dera Temple. It offers a high standard of udon noodles at an affordable price and has English menus for foreigners. Omen-style udon is a vegetarian dish of udon (warm or cold), a soy-based dipping broth, and an assortment of local, seasonal Kyoto vegetables that are either boiled or pickled.
