Story & Recommendation
Amazingly delicious and reasonable neo-bistro along Kamogawa River
Ikariya Shokudo is located along the Kamogawa River–one of the top sightseeing spots in Kyoto for sightseeing. The building itself is a renovated 100-year old townhouse and matches the scenery well. Their Kawayuka, outdoor riverside terrace, is loved by many locals and tourists during the summer. At Ikariya Shokudo, you can enjoy deliciously appetizing dishes made from fresh seasonal ingredients. They also have a large collection of wine selected from all over the world too. You’ll be amazed by how well the food and wine recommended by the sommelier go together. Most remarkably, the exquisitely divine wine is affordable too. This bistro is one of the hardest restaurants to get reservations at in Kyoto and a lot of people compete to get in. However, it’s worth it. Friendly and helpful staff, nice cozy atmosphere, and delicious food and drinks at a reasonable price; sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

The Confit of Chicken is one of Ikariya Shokudo’s specialty dishes. The chicken is slowly poached at a low temperature and is incredibly tender and juicy. Enjoy a melt-in-the mouth texture with a crispy skin.
