Story & Recommendation
Well praised by locals, a Chinese cuisine in traditional Kamishichiken area
Itosen, a restaurant serving Chinese cuisine is tucked inside Kamishichiken, the oldest Maiko Geiko district in Kyoto. It is a quiet area where locals reside for generations and are familiar with each other. Locals know this restaurant as a place for comfort and simply delicious Chinese food. Because many Maiko and Geiko of Kamishichiken regularly eat at this restaurant, the food served does not include strong spices in it thought retaining elegance. Within the simplicity are chef’s warmth, determination, and loyalty towards cooking that are shown through the dishes. Chinese cooking have its own particular style in Japan. Many Japanese people feel familiarity for Chinese dishes such as Spring rolls and Subuta (sweet and sour pork). Cooking for 35 years, the chef stands in the kitchen when the restaurant is open. Aside from cooking, he is also in charge of Kamishichiken community developing organization, “Takumi Kai.”
