Even though Kyoto is not known for its sushi, there are some extremely delicious sushi restaurants that are so notable that they were awarded Michelin stars, like Sushi Kappo Nakaichi which has one star to its name. This restaurant is one of the first few to embrace sushi kappo in the city. The second generation chef had trained at a ryotei in Kanazawa before taking over this fine restaurant that’s just east of Yasaka Shrine in Gion.
Every technique used to make the sushi dishes is nothing short of perfection. Expect tons of seasonal ingredients including soft-shelled turtle, crab meat, and ebi on top of the standard sushi ingredients. Don’t miss out on Sushi Kappo Nakaichi’s Kyoto special dish which is a combination of red bream seared in a Kyoto specialty item, pike conger eel, kuruma ebi, and fatty tuna — all are served with wasabi and ginger.
The dining experience will undoubtedly give you more of an insight into the Kyo-rori style of cooking that’s only practiced in this ancient capital city.
