Story & Recommendation
Fresh Seafood Paella Made by a Spanish Chef
The area around subway Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Station is a bit far from Kyoto Station, but in this area you can find many new and hip stores and restaurants. One of them is Antonio, offering Spanish cuisine. The restaurant opened in 2003, and has such Spanish classics on its menu as paella. Their tapas menu is also extensive, and they have a nice selection of Spanish wines. Foodies are sure to be satisfied, and so are oenophiles. The clean interior, beautiful paintins reminiscent of Spain, all make the restaurant feel nicely out of place, like you were not in Kyoto anymore. Plus, the staff can speak English and Spanish!

Seafood paella
Seafood paella / ¥4,500 for two servings / ¥9,000 for four servings
The seafood extract used on the rice makes this dish burst with umami. The rich taste and flavors of this dish are, oh, so great it makes you feel like you were back in Barcelona sipping some red wine as the sun is setting. There is some lemon on it too, giving it a nice zest. It takes some time to cook this dish so don’t hesitate on ordering it.

Garlic prawns
Garlic prawns / ¥1,300
The plump shrimp are served to you simmering, so be sure to eat them while they are hot. They are cooked with white wine and olive oil so the garlic is not overpowering. After eating the shrimp, be sure to dip some bread in the leftover sauce.
3Let's Try!
Marinated anchovies
Marinated anchovies / Half ¥580 │ Full ¥850
It’s one of their popular tapas. Since it is served rather quickly, it’s perfect to snack with an alcoholic beverage. The distinctive flavors of the dish are the fresh aroma of the olive oil and sourness of the vinegar sauce. It’s not fishy at all because of how fresh the anchovies are. It goes well with not only beer and wine, but also sweet sangria.
4Let's Try!
Chilindron Lamb stew
Chilindron Lamb stew / ¥1,700
Chilindron is a Spanish regional dish in which meat, onions, tomatoes are simmered. At Antonio, it is cooked with lamb, which is often consumed in Spain. Dip the lamb meat in the sauce in which the umami tastes of the vegetables is condensed, and then eat it. The aroma of thyme adds an accent and it will stimulate your appetite. Have it with red wine.
