A juicy selection of yakitori matched with a signature rice dish
The restaurant is a 5-minute walk from Hankyu Kawaramachi Station. The Kiyamachi area is one of Kyoto’s main hubs for bars and eateries, and it has a number of slender alleyways that crisscross throughout the neighborhood. You’ll find Umaimonyaki Sun tucked away in one of those small alleyways crossing through Kiyamachi. Umaimonyaki Sun is especially popular for their masterfully cooked yakitori chicken skewers served with specially prepared dipping sauces, as well as their fresh selection of vegetables. Their yakitori is perfectly cooked with a juicy texture and delightful aroma, which is an incredible way to enjoy the chicken’s distinctive savoriness. Their vegetable ingredients include hard-to-find locally sourced veggies from Kyoto that are fresh enough to enjoy even when they’re raw. They also carry a selection of alcohol to pair up with their food. In addition to their yakitori, they are also known for their specialty “Lard Rice,” which is an excellent dish to finish your meal off with. As you might expect from the name, Lard Rice is prepared with warm rice mixed together with lard, which is a simple yet satisfying dish that will leave you craving another helping for days to come. Umaimonyaki Sun provides a fun Japanese izakaya dining experience with a well-balanced selection of food to choose from, including dishes with chicken, vegetables, and rice.
