Enjoy the taste of Kyoto cuisine - Visit in Japan

Kyoto style ramen

Tenkaippin (locally Ten'ichi) is a very popular chain of ramen restaurants, with branches scattered throughout most of Japan. Founded in Kyoto in 1981, this brand is famous for its thick and flavorful kotteri ramen that is cooked from chicken bones stewed for 14 hours. The ramen broth is opaque, punctuated by slices of pork, bamboo shoots, and green onions.

Kushikatsu

This is a skewer of meat and vegetables from the Kansai region. The Kushinobo restaurant in Kyoto Station, on the rooftop of the Isetan shopping district, serves a kushikatsu lunch set. The ingredients of this dish are extremely diverse from chicken, fish, okra, lotus root, pumpkin, etc.

Tofu

Kyoto is famous for its pure water, so it has created a special delicious tofu. In addition to the machine-made tofu, the handmade products almost keep the old traditional way of making; typical example is Toyoukeya – a family-owned shop since 1897.

Chirimen Sansho

At first glance, you will mistake them for dried onions or pickles. It is not until you look closely and discover the tiny black eyes that you realize that you have been spectacularly deceived. That's right, it's a small fish in Kyoto called Chirimen.

Nama-fu

The first impression of this dish is its lovely shape with the shape of maple leaves or cherry blossoms. Nama-fu is made from flour mixed with rice flour, chewy and almost tasteless, but when combined with other vegetables and ingredients, is very satisfying.

Soy milk donuts

The Tohnyu donut stand at Nishiki Market is famous for its soy milk donuts. Each set includes 10 hot cakes. The preparation of this dish is quite similar to the popular funnel cake in North America, mainly for filling

Tsukemono pickles

Made from white radish, peas, cabbage, and fermented rice bran, this dish is very popular at Nishiki Market. Sometimes seaweed and other seafood are added to the pickle mix for a rich and varied flavor. They are favored for their unique flavor and are often used as garnishes and side dishes for easy digestion.

Yatsuhashi

Shops in Kyoto sell mostly traditional Japanese sweets, but Yatsuhashi remains one of the most popular. The cake has a triangular shape representing the koto, the sacred traditional harp of the cherry blossom country.
