oyako don set

The other day, I took a paid holiday to cheer myself up. I went to Kyoto station without specific aim...

I had a set meal for lunch at the soba restaurant called " osobadokoro aoi" in Kyoto station.

At this time, I used my cell phone's camera, so I couldn't take a photo of the dishes clearly...

I chose a oyako don set that includes a oyako don ( 親子丼), udon ( うどん), boiled spinach seasoned with soy sauce ( ほうれん草のおひたし), and pickles ( 漬物). Except oyako don, these dishes differ from restaurant to restaurant.

As you may know, oyako don is a Japanese rice bowl topped with simmered chicken and egg.

Do you know why it’s called Oyako don ? Oyako in Japanese means parent and child, so the chicken and the egg are oyako. It sounds pretty interesting, huh? Oh, maybe I should add that "don" stands for "donburi". And, the word "kou no mono ( 香の物)" is another Japanese word to say "tsukemono ( 漬物)".

I honestly feel this udon wasn't very good, but the oyako don was excellent !!  I would order oyako don if I go there again...
