During my trip in Kyoto with my girlfriend, one dinner I was alone because she was very tired: then i searched a restaurant near my hotel and I found this great one! Noodles and tempura were great, cooks and owners were so nice too!

We came upon it by accident, but fell in love with its hand made udon right away. We ended up eating there three times during our stay at Kyoto. Order it with beef or pork.
