It is located in the popular Kyoto tourist spot and crowded with tourists during the maple leaf and cherry blossoms seasons. Inside of the restaurant is very calm and has Kyoto atmosphere. You can enjoy traditional Kyoto cuisine while enjoying beautiful garden view.
I love shichimi (Japanese pepper) of Okutan. It was not so spicy but flavor is tightly. I was adding a lot of shichimi to tofu, so, I can enjoy another taste of tofu.
1Must Eat !
Yudofu / ¥3,240
It is an original tofu of okutan. Texture and throat is smooth. At first, scoop a tofu and put it in a small bowl, and eat with katsuo soup and green onion. Since, natural flavor of tofu is good, please enjoy just tofu without seasonings at first
2Must Eat !
It is made with white sesame. After mixing white sesames, it becomes brown color. The taste is really different between yudofu and goma-tofu. It goes well with wasabi and tororo. Goma-tofu is included with the tofu course.
Tororo (grated yam)

Tororo (grated yam)
It has been already seasoned. Tororo will be match with all dishes of tofu course, so please try tororo bit by bit. Tororo is included with the tofu course. If you like tororo, you can order another tororo with additional charge.
