Appearance of Marufuku

Beloved Kyoto Restaurant / Found near Kyoto Station! Ten-soba at Marufuku, a specialty restaurant with a history of about 100 years, is a perfection of skill and history.

It takes about 2 minutes from Kyoto Station on Higashinotoin Street. Since its establishment in the early Showa period (1926-1989), Marufuku has been loved for nearly a century as a diner near Kyoto Station. Today, the third-generation owner serves mainly handmade udon and soba noodles, filling the stomachs and hearts of locals and tourists alike.

Owner of Marufuku

The attention to detail that goes into each dish is impressive, including the preparation of four types of homemade kaeshi (broth) to suit each dish, which is used for udon, soba, and rice bowls.

Marufuku's Tenzaru

The aromatic soba is homemade nihachi-soba made from domestically produced buckwheat flour ground with a millstone. Freshly fried tempura has a crispy texture that is irresistible. Tenzaru: 1,400 yen

This takeout product was just started this year, and the attention to detail is still present in the onigiri, which look like sandwiches. The ingredients, such as tsukudani and pork cutlets, are homemade and already well-received for their delicious taste, making them a popular item that sometimes sells out early in the day.

Marufuku's take-out-only rice balls

Take-out-only rice balls. (Left) Ham Katsu Sandwich: 500 yen. A large, juicy ham cutlet is sandwiched between two pieces of ham, and is so satisfying that you can fill up on just one. (Right) Tuna salad for 450 yen is a popular ingredient in onigiri. The sandwich shape makes it great to have the filling no matter where you eat it from!
