Restaurant Details
This unique and highly-regarded restaurant is not too far away from Kiyamachi Street, along the Takase River in Kyoto. Opened by the pioneer of Kyoto kappo cuisine, Kumasaburo Kurisu, who’s also known as “The God of Cookery,” Honke Tankuma Honten’s name comes from his name combined with his hometown, Tamba. In a Kyoto-style traditional house with private rooms with tatami seating, this restaurant presents the city of Kyoto in four seasons. The cooking techniques that have been inherited from the very first generation of chefs are still being used today. Ingredients of the dishes are prepared using special techniques to bring out the truest original flavors. Look out for wakatakeni in spring, famous Horaku egg dish in winter, hamo in the summer, and Yanagawa-style baby taro potatoes in spring and autumn. Honke Tankuma Honten is no ordinary kappo restaurant. The founding owner traveled through more than 70 countries including Africa and the Middle East, and from his experiences, he crafted special menus to be Muslim-friendly and halal, as well as ones that are vegetarian and kosher.
