Story & Recommendation
Enjoy a simple, yet luxurious, breakfast at Breakfast Kishin Kyoto!
Located in the “always-busy-with-tourists” area of Gion, in a quiet alley, Breakfast Kishin Kyoto is a breakfast specialty restaurant that is not only famous among tourists but also the locals. Kishin specializes in “mother’s cooking” like washoku (Japanese cuisine). The specialty of this cuisine is in its warmth; you can taste the passion the chefs have toward the food here. The breakfast at Kishin is made in accordance with the goals of the One Rice One Soup Project. The rice and soup are the “main actors,” and the food is simple, so the ingredients have to be chosen carefully. They chose the rice they use, Tsuyahime from Yamagata Prefecture, after tasting many different rice brands. In the soup called “tonjiru” they use aged pork bought from a local butcher called Kyoto Nakasei and in their miso soup, they use white miso made by Kyoto Shimamura. The dishes are also served on plates chosen by the owner of a pottery shop in Kamakura, Shoken Tomoo, who makes sure that each of the plates in its simplicity also holds a beauty, and that you can have an enjoyable meal at Kishin. The name Kishin comes from a Zen Buddhist saying “To eat and make food, is all training, and to live, this is worth of enjoyment.” I hope those of our readers who are usually busy in the morning, will the take the time to enjoy a Japanese breakfast at Kishin and start their morning feeling fresh.
