Heritage is key to the success of this Kyoto tempura restaurant. The third generation chef inherited not only the restaurant, but also the secret eggless batter and salt recipes, the oil blend used by his forefathers, and the spirit with which they approached the task of cooking world-class tempura.
The Michelin star which Kyobashi has held on to since the very first Kyoto guide was published was a fitting prize for all of these years of combined effort. The omakase-only menu features classic vegetable and seafood tempura, with only salt and lemon recommended as seasoning so as to let the natural flavors of the ingredients — encased in a light and crispy batter — shine alone.
After eating a touch of grated daikon radish to clear your palate, the next piece will be served up: perhaps a piece of sweet potato glazed with brandy and sugar, or a strip of tilefish, or the ubiquitous shrimp which is the favorite of most tempura lovers. Around 18 varieties will be provided to you. The lightness of the batter means that you’ll leave feeling satisfied but not overly full.
