In the soup is a restaurant and bar hidden on the 9th floor of a building in Gion
On the 9th floor of a building close to the kabuki theater of Kyoto, Minamiza, you can find a restaurant/bar offering New York style dishes called in the Soup. Inside the restaurant, it feels like you had left Japan, and were in New York: the analog TV and LP player of the restaurant only make this more pronounced. The night view from the 9th floor is incredible, making this place the perfect choice for couples or a girls’ night out. The most famous dish of the restaurant is their trippa, tripe with beans in a tomato sauce, combining Italian and traditional American influences into a beautiful, delicious package. They also have a good selection of alcoholic beverages, but I liked their sparkling sake the best! Gion is full of traditional Japanese restaurants, but if you want something a bit more different, a bit more romantic, you could try In the Soup and their Instagram-ready dishes.
