Ikariya Shokudo

- イカリヤ食堂 -
Amazingly delicious neo-bistro at good prices along the Kamogawa River
Ikariya Shokudo is located along the Kamogawa River– one of the heart spots for sightseeing. The building itself was a renovated 100-year old townhouse and well matches the scenery. Their Kawayuka, an outdoor terrace on the top of rivers in summer, is loved by many locals and tourists. In Ikariya Shokudo, you can enjoy their piquant dishes with fresh seasonal foods. They have a large collection of wine selected from all over the world. You’ll be amazed by the marriage of food and wine recommended by the sommelier. Most remarkably, the tasty wine is affordable. This bistro is one of the hardest restaurants to get reservations. A lot of people compete to get in. However, it’s worthy. Friendly and helpful staff, nice cozy atmosphere, and savory foods and drinks at reasonable prices– it’s a pretty good deal.

This is one of the symbolic items in Ikariya Shokudo. The confit chicken poached very slowly at a low temperature is incredibly tender and juicy. You can enjoy melt-in-the mouth eating experience and its crispy texture of the surface as well.
Savory cheese soufflé
Savory cheese soufflé / ¥900
It is the most beloved dish in Ikariya Shokudo. The fluffy soufflé made with white sauce is rich in flavors of eggs and cheese. The Nanbu Tekki (ironware) cocotte keeps the soufflé fresh from the oven. You’ll become addicted to the soft, flavorsome, and freshly made soufflé.
