Noodle Shop "Benkei"

"Benkei" of Gojo Keihan is my favorite noodle restaurant. Lots of celebrities' autographs are displayed on the wall of the shop.

Beef curry noodle is 900 yen, and rice mixed with vegetable is 190 yen. Curry is not too spicy, not too mild. Just right!

The "Benkei noodle" has beef, deep fried tofu, and burdock (900 yen). The balance of sweet and salty beef and tofu, and very spicy and crunchy burdock was just right also!!

The restaurant is open from 12 noon till 3 AM. (Sunday is closed.)

In the meantime, Benkei and Ushiwakamaru are Japan's favorite subjects of folklore, and there are statues of "Benkei" and "Ushiwakamaru" on Gojo Bridge.
