Colorful clay pot soup curry with plenty of vegetables
Clay pot soup curry Ohmiya Seiuemon is a restaurant specializing in soup curry made with local ingredients that opened in August 2018 in Kyoto.
The specialty of this restaurant is their curry that uses a mix of mellow bonito stock and strong, fragrant spices. You can top the curry with a meat of your choosing. The meat is all chosen carefully by the chef and it’s all locally produced. Each of the curries contains a lot of veggies so this restaurant is also popular among women.
A lot of white and beige is used in the interior design of the restaurant, and a lot of natural light flows in from the big windows. You can go to this restaurant almost whenever you want to, as they’re open pretty much every day for both lunch and dinner. This restaurant is in busy central Kyoto, so I recommend you visit it when sightseeing in Kyoto.
Kyo-aka jidori chicken drumstick soup curry
Kyo-aka jidori chicken is a brand chicken from Kyoto that has a low amount of fat and chewy meat. It contains a lot of collagen so I recommend it to women. This classic menu item has a nice balance of umami and soup.
Soup curry with 100% locally produced pork Hamburg steak
This soup curry may look weird at first: it combines bonito dashi stock and a Hamburg steak. As you eat it, the juices in the Hamburg steak will mix up with the curry, and these juices will then make the spices in it stand out even more. I recommend getting it with cheese melted with a blow torch.
Red wine beef stew soup curry with Kyo no Niku beef
Kyo no Niku is a brand of beef from Kyoto, and its specialties are that the fibers are small and that it contains a lot of fat, so it’s full of umami. By using it in a stew, it drops the excess fat and makes the sweetness and umami stand out even more. This is a bit luxurious curry I recommend to those who like meat.
