Enjoy beef offal that is going to change your image of beef at the kappo style restaurant Hachibei
Behind the department store Kawaramachi OPA, on the small alley of Yanagikoji, there in the middle of trendy restaurants, is the beef offal restaurant of Hachibei.
Hachibei is a kappo style restaurant, which there are not many in Kyoto. Kappo restaurants offer meat dishes that are cooked in various ways, and the style is somewhere between kaiseki and casual dining. All the tastes and textures of the dishes at Hachibei are carefully thought out so that not two are the same, and this is also why the restaurant has in the past got a Michelin star. All the dishes at Hachibei make the beef offal taste great. The chef told me the following: “I would like to get more people to taste beef offal, and to realize the potential in it.” You can taste the chef’s passion in the dishes, and this is why they are so delicious.
I’m certain your opinion about beef offal will change after eating at Hachibei. Kaiseki and tofu are also good options in Kyoto, but I would like to recommend you taste kappo style cooking at Hachibei. I’m sure you will rediscover your love of Kyoto.
