Review: This place is incredible. It is a mysterious, magical place off major road Shijo on Nishinotoin. Well, actually, one must walk down a secret alley to get to the restaurant from Nishinotoin. It is set in a beautiful old machiya, with a lovely garden in the back. The couple who run the place are interesting, interested and very knowledgeable about the food they sell. It is a very refreshing and insightful to experience food in this type of setting. The menu is in English and in Japanese. The owners are happy to recommend different meals and interesting ways to eat them. The vegetables are so fresh and amazing and I think the majority are delivered to them from Osaka and other local places. The best thing though are all the sauces and spices they add to the food. Everything is handmade. The salad dressing we had on our unique vegetable salad was made with very interesting ingredients and was heavenly. Added such a rich, unique taste to the salad that even my meat-loving dad loved the dish! The lemongrass tea we had at the end with the dried fruit tasted so healthy and my body thanked me after. Good value. Great people. Amazing location. Unique experience. What more can you ask for? Oh, also we had the whole place to ourselves :) This place is yet to be discovered - get there while you can!! I would highly recommend this place!!!! Enjoy :)
