Kiryu has been known for wheat production and there are many udon restaurants. Fujiya Head restaurant was opened in 1887 and is famous for Himokawa udon, Kiryu’s local food, which is thin and broad noodles anywhere between 5mm and over 15cm-wide.

The owner of the restaurant makes noodles with Gunma prefecture’s wheat flour. They are kneaded and rested for a long time. The 5cm-wide noodles are firm and smooth. Dip them in the restaurant’s secret sauce and enjoy.

Their famous menu is Curry Seiro Himokawa for 900 yen. It used to be served only in fall and winter, but upon requests from customers, they are served throughout the year now. The curry sauce with the goodness of onions and meat goes well with the firm and smooth noodles. The set of udon and seasoned rice bowl or Tempura set is popular as well.

The udon menu includes Kake udon, Tsukemen and Seiro. With extra 100 yen, you can change the kind of needles to soba or Himokawa udon.
