① ここはな (Kokohana)
A 100-year old Machiya refurbished into a cafe. This cafe offers various homemade sweets and dishes using organic produce.
②松いち (Matsu Ichi)
Every morning, the owner purchases fresh seafood at the Kyoto fish market and, among others, uses it for the sushi set menu (reservation needed). The Izakaya is laid out on 2 floors and also offers private rooms.
③ 明記大陸食堂 (Meiki Tairiku Shokudo)
Located a 10 minutes’ walk from Hotei-an, this red and orange color themed Chinese restaurant offers reasonable priced dishes. We recommend to try their ramen+ fried rice or gyoza (dumpling) set.
④ がんち (Ganchi)
Tasty Tonkatsu (Japanese deep-fried pork) restaurant located in a side alley from the main road. It is a restaurant with only 8 seats by the counter, and deliciously prepares the tonkatsu in front of your seat.
⑤ わらび奄 (Warabian)
We highly recommend trying their Warabimochi set (Japanese sweet made from bracken starch) with their homemade black bean sauce for the topping. The traditional café puts importance on using domestics’ products only.
⑥ 京菓子司 末廣屋 (Suehiroya)
You can buy traditional Kyoto wagashi (Japanese sweets) at this long established confectionary store. Their Castella (sponge cake) is also very popular. The store is closed on Wednesday.
