Piping Hot Teppan Cuisine and Drinks in the Backstreets
Kyoto’s drinking district, Kiyamachi, is home to Alley 13 (juusan banchi roji) and its many famous izakayas and bars. One of those famous establishments is Enamiya Saku-no-ma. It’s located up a staircase in Alley 13. While it may look difficult to approach, don’t worry. The owner will greet you with a friendly smile. He’s a really nice guy. The restaurant is a bit of a combination between a Japanese izakaya and a bar. Going in and just having a drink is fine, but they also have a great food menu if you want to have dinner there. But we highly recommend arriving hungry, because the menu at Enamiya Saku-no-ma has a plethora of choices. Their specialty is the teppan cuisine. Most of the dishes are made with pork, eggs, and yakisoba, and they are all made fresh and cooked to serve. They also have snacks to go with drinking like edamame and nuts. A plentiful variety of drinks is also available ranging from beer and sake to wine and umeshu.
