20 Nov 2019 Kyoto’s Food Culture through Photos by Amherst Global Education | posted in: Cy in Kyoto, Japan, Uncategorized | 0 Octopus restaurant. Fresh seafood in Japan is endless. Tako (octopus) and takoyaki. The different forms of sushi possible is endless and always delicious. In the bowls are large portions of miso soup. Kura Sushi is a 100yen ($1) revolving sushi restaurant. Fresh sushi can also be delivered to you on a “sushi train.” Fresh tuna and a poached quail egg on a bed of seaweed and rice. Each plate usually comes with two pieces of sushi. You can also order it fresh and your food will come on a train. The plates start to stack high. Sashimi plate served at an izakaya. Tuna bowl served at an izakaya during a rugby match. Simple rice bowl of minced meguro and sliced tuna. A huge bowl of ramen with a char siu pork bowl. Ramen shop close to Doshisha university — line is always impressively long. Worth it every time. Tsukemen ramen — dipping ramen. Intense flavor coming from the thick soup dipping base. Even instant ramen can be gourmet. This is an instant ramen from a Michelin-starred restaurant. Meh. Satisfactory, but nothing to write home about. Karaage served in a cafe that used to be an onsen. One of the best things about Japanese food culture is how each thing is imbued with such history. Just like this onsen cafe! Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply.
