With an impressive history of highly skilled chefs, it's no wonder Kappo Chihiro is the first choice for many diners looking to relish the traditional taste of Kyoto. The secret behind the success of this restaurant is the chef's ability to bring out the richest flavors in the ingredients without tipping over into excessiveness.
A perfect location for any occasion, the interior embodies Kyoto. The 400-year-old wooden counter, Kumiko lattice doors, and branded tableware just enhances the experience while you savor the flavors of the dishes.
Kappo Chihiro's most famous dish is the grilled eggplant, as it perfectly depicts the restaurant's concept: the "aesthetics of subtraction." The chef grills and peels the skin of the eggplant, and that's about it. No seasoning is added, yet a rich and sweet taste is brought out, transforming the simple ingredient into an exquisite dish.
Similar to the restaurant's best-selling menu item, every other ingredient is prepared with similar cooking techniques that take advantage of the natural elements of sweetness and sourness. Kappo Chihiro also has sake from Niigata, Ishikawa, and Toyama, as well as shochu and vintage wines to go along with their unbeatable cuisine.
