A Kyoto favorite for over 200 years, Mizutaki nabe brings out the richness and flavor chicken
Mizutaki is a type of Japanese hot pot called nabe. It is made by simmering vegetables and chicken. The recipe of the mizutaki served at Toriyasa has been handed down from generation to generation.
Toriyasa is located a 5-minute walk from Hankyu Kawaramachi Station, in the entertainment district of Kyoto. The restaurant has been in business for over 200 years, and it’s said to have been frequented by the famous Sakamoto Ryoma. Their famous mizutaki uses a chicken broth that is cooked for three days. The richness and the flavor are beyond words. There is something nostalgic about the hot pot simmering away in front of you; to think that people have kept coming to this restaurant for 200 years just to taste this nabe! They also have many other a la carte chicken dishes, so those who like chicken: rejoice! The building the restaurant is in is in great shape, and has even been registered as an important cultural property of Japan.
