The 2nd floor of Kyoto ICHINODEN Main Store is a restaurant. You may enjoy seasonal dishes and freshly cooked saikyozuke in our Kyoto style restaurant.
When you want to spend relaxing time elegantly with your loved ones, or when you want to enjoy authentic Kyoto cuisine during your visit in Kyoto, please come and visit Kyoto ICHINODEN and enjoy our monthly seasonal cuisine. Our Kaiseki cuisine begins with an appetizer served on a plate shaped like the character “one（一）”, which is from our name; then follow with wanmono (food served in a bowl), steamed dishes and freshly cooked saikyozuke. Each and every dish is delicately prepared with care.
Kyoto ICHINODEN’s 3 Quality Standards
We use rare rishiri natural kelp called “island” and bonito from Makurazaki to produce our soup stock. Moreover, we use only the ichiban-dashi (first brewing of soup stock) in order to maximizes the flavour.
The main dish saikyozuke is delicately grilled one piece by one piece over medium heat. Once the fat of the fish starts melting, the saikyouzuke fish will be caramelized creating a juicy brown colour.
As for the rice, we are using A5 rank Kyotango rice, freshly polished and used everyday. In order to allow our customers to enjoy freshly cooked rice, we prepare separate clay pots for each individual customer and cooking will only start once the customers are seated.
When we create our monthly menu, we would always imagine what kind of dishes would put smiles on our customers’ faces. Moreover, we always use fresh Kyoto vegetables and seasonal ingredients so that you can feel the four seasons of Kyoto while tasting our dishes.
When creating a new cuisine, we are greatly concious about whether the dish will surprise our customers. The appearance, aroma, taste, texture ……
We would imagine how each of these features can turn surprise into excitement while carefully preparing each dish. In order to put the sweetest smile on our customer’s face, we make sure the main dish saikyozuke becomes the most gorgeous dish our customers taste on that day.
Apart from our cuisine, we aim to provide the finest service and soothing environment for our customers, allowing them to enjoy an extraordinary day. We provide the greatest hospitality throughout our customer’s stay, from the moment they step into our shop, right until their return. It would be our pleasure if you could enjoy a special time with us at Kyoto ICHINODEN.
We have table seats or horigotatsu (low table over a hole in the floor), and we have private rooms for 3 to 16 people. There are different areas suitable for all sorts of gatherings and celebrations with family and friends, meetings, alumni associations and others. From equipment to furniture, every corner of our shop performs “extraordinary”. We welcome you to enjoy a relaxed and elegant time with us.
*Holiday and tourist season are particularly crowded, so we recommend you to book in advance. (Private room reservations are accepted from 3 people) If you have any requests about your seat, please let us know at the time of booking.
