What a great find this place is! We were recommended here by the locals, and what a find it is! The place is a small, local place, with very few, if any, foreigners. But it is a wonderful little place run by the owner, and serving a lunch special, each day, with different dishes. It is so good, we came back! The choice for today’s set was either fish, chicken or pork. I opted for the herbed grilled chicken, and my wife had the minced pork in miso. The set comes with the main dish, 3 starters, rice and miso. It is home cooked, with love and attention, tastes delicious and costs an unbelievable JPY 800! We washed this lovely meal down with a sake tasting plate consisting of 3 different sakes! There are two different sake tasting plates: 3 and 5 sakes, costing JPY 700 and 1000, respectively. This has to be the best value meal in Kyoto - home cooked tasty food, with the owner, in a tiny, little local place, in a lovely shopping street, right opposite the walking tour centre of Furukawa-cho. Support this place, and have a great time being local.

I wandered the back alleys and local markets in Higashiyama and happened upon Nishimura restaurant, a little local restaurant run by a single owner who does it all, and extremely quickly. The lunch set consisted is your choice of three entrees, then three sides dishes, a bowl of rice and miso soup. All for 800 yen, half the price a block and a half away on the big street, Sanjo Dori. The service was lightening fast, the food was so good, and watching the owner work was a ballet. I then had coffee and she brewed a perfect cup of single serving drip coffee. When I left there were no seats left and she had to turn away several groups because the little eatery could only hold 8 patrons. But I will definitely go back again!
