Story & Recommendation
Sukiyaki Hot Pot Made with Delicious Wagyu Beef and Plenty of Spring Onions
Pontocho -a famous atmospheric alleyway in Kyoto- has a wide range of dining establishments such as Japanese restaurants and bars. In one corner of this alleyway, you will find Negiya-Heikichi Pontocho, a restaurant offering dishes made with high-quality Wagyu beef, fresh spring onions and other vegetables. Our highest recommendation is the sukiyaki hot pot topped with large amounts of Kyoto's specialty, Kujo spring onions. This hot pot is made with juicy and flavorsome Wagyu beef cooked in a salty-sweet sauce. Also, Kujo spring onions are characterized for their crunchy texture and refreshing taste, making it the perfect accompaniment for Wagyu beef. In addition, the restaurant also offers an excellent range of single dishes such as sashimi, yakitori, charcoal grilled vegetables, and more -the perfect accompaniment for an alcoholic drink-.

Stewed beef&leek “SUKIYAKI”
Stewed beef&leek “SUKIYAKI” / Regular ¥3,800 | Special ¥4,800
A hot pot made with Wagyu beef, plenty of Kujo hot springs, tofu, onions, konjac, and other ingredients cooked in a pot with a salty-sweet sauce. We recommend wrapping the beef around the spring onions and other vegetables to obtain the best flavor. Mix it in with raw egg for a milder taste. The restaurant staff will be happy to explain the best way to eat sukiyaki. You can request extra beef and vegetables for an additional charge. *Can be ordered for one person only. The photo shows a hot pot for two people.

Wagyu beef on rice bowl
Wagyu beef on rice bowl / ¥980
Rice bowl topped with deliciously flavored Wagyu beef and plenty of spring onions. When ordering sukiyaki, we would recommend sharing it between two to three people. This dish is also delicious by pouring a little bit of sukiyaki sauce on top.

Udon
Udon / ¥500
A dish to be ordered when having a hot pot like sukiyaki. Once you have finished eating all the main ingredients, you can add some udon noodles to the remaining soup. The best thing to do is to cook them for a short while until the udon has been soaked well within the soup. Even if you feel full, you will be amazed at how much noodles you will be able to eat!
How to Order

English menu available. The table charge is ¥500 per person. The table charge includes a small appetizer and the spring onions to be added to your meal (with free refills).

- Order Tips -
For two to three people, we would recommend ordering sukiyaki for two people plus a few additional dishes.
