421-5 Shimomaruyacho, Nakagyo-Ku kyoto


A short walk from the Ritz-Carlton, this izakaya (Japanese tapas) restaurant is true farm-to-table. The head chef has a farm outside the city from which he sources all the ingredients on this seasonal menu. While casual, this popular restaurant has a trendy, upbeat vibe; the fresh produce sits out on the counter in front of the chef’s grill while pop music streams from the speakers. If you’re not comfortable with both a Japanese-speaking staff and Japanese menu, skip this local spot.
