A traditional delicacy that is famous in Kyoto city, Japan. Savor Kyoto’s famous yuba (tofu skin) prepared in a variety of dishes with this kaiseki course dinner. (Vegetarian options available)
I have been studying as a chef for about 40 years with the desire to bring smiles to people’s faces through food. We started in Miyamacho, a small town located deep in the heart of Kyoto, and have a specialty yuba shop where we make fresh yuba daily. We opened our restaurant near Nijo Castle as we wanted to bring our yuba dishes to as many people as possible. We hope that by serving yuba as a specialty in a kaiseki dinner, we can make it more accessible and allow people to taste the full range of possibilities of yuba.
This yuba restaurant is located near the UNSECO World Heritage Site, Nijo Castle. From start to finish, you’ll be able to enjoy a comforting, home-style cooking using only the best yuba and soy milk – all which have been handmade by yuba artisans. Through repeated trial and error, these yuba artisans have stripped away the impurities of soybeans to the finest level, and created a refined, elegant taste with the natural sweetness (umami) of Japanese soybeans. Your kaiseki dinner can be enjoyed alongside wagyu beef, Kyoto duck, dashi fish stock, or be made completely vegetarian.
