Located in Shibuya, Rai-an is a newly-opened soba noodle shop with a beautiful modern design: floor-to-ceiling windows, open kitchen, and an atelier to display the making of soba. The soba noodles delicious, and all the other small dishes we tried were surprisingly yum as well.

位于涉谷區的雷庵是今年剛開的面店,從整片的落地窗(白天應該很美)、開放式廚房等裝修設計上就可以看得出這是一家比較新式的摩登面店。令人驚喜的是這裏不僅荞麥面好吃,其他東西也做的可圈可點。

I didn’t plan to go to any Michelin restaurants this time in Kyoto, but as I was sorting out the itinerary, I noticed that there’s a one Michelin star soba restaurant near Daitokuji Temple which we planned to visit, so I decided to drop by for a taste. After getting off the bus in the nearest station, we walked for another 7-10 minutes in the scorching sun, eventually arriving at this humble-looking restaurant with a tiny sign that says “かね井” (Kanei), so small that it’s definitely missed unless by those specifically looking for it.

這次京都之行沒有特別安排豪華的米其林餐廳,不過在規劃行程時發現想要造訪的大德寺旁有一家米其林一星的蕎麥麵,決定順道去嚐一嚐。從公車站下來後冒著大太陽走了10分鍾左右,來到這間樸素的餐廳,外面挂著一塊不特別留意的話絕對看不到的小小招牌,上面寫著かね井(發音:kanei)。

Upon entering the shop, I noticed that there are only about 16 seats inside, and even though it wasn’t even noon time yet, every seat has been taken. The owner lady quietly came over and said rather apologetically – I’m afraid you will have to wait for about 1 hour or so for a table. Well then, we shall wait.

推門入內,發現店裏只有16個左右的位子,所有人盤腿而坐在榻榻米上安靜地吃著麵。我抵達時才12點不到一些,不過店裏已經完全客滿了,前面還有兩位客人在等位。老板娘略帶歉意的說,可能要等一個小時哦。哎呀,那就等吧。

In this small Japanese building of over 80 years old, the husband Toshio Kanei is busy manning the kitchen, while the wife takes care of the customers out in the front. There’s no air-conditioning even in the summer heat, only a small fan quietly doing its job; There is a small backyard garden, simply and elegantly decorated with a goldfish bowl, and a traditional Japanese wind bell making beautiful sounds with each breeze. The air is quiet, so quiet that everyone automatically lowers their voice as they enter the space.

80多年的日式建築裡,老板在廚房裏忙碌著,老板娘內外走動招呼客人。沒有空調,只有電風扇輕輕轉動著,小小的後院簡單精致,擺了一個很有禅意的金魚缸,挂了一串聲音清脆的風鈴。靜谧的氣氛讓所有人都也不自覺的輕聲細語。

We didn’t actually wait for one hour, though it was pretty close to it. Upon being seated, we were served some cold brew tea, and started browsing though the hand-written menu. Though the restaurant is one Michelin star, it is not significantly more expensive than a regular soba joint, with the price for each a la carte item to be around 950-1,700 yen.

其實並沒有等到一個小時(不過大概也45分鍾了)。老板娘爲我們倒上了冷泡茶、遞上一份手寫的菜單。雖然說是米其林一星餐廳,不過かね井的價格跟其他蕎麥麵屋的價格似乎差不多,單點的價格950-1700日幣不等。
