Enjoy yuba at Kyo-Yuba Seike Nishijin in a renovated 140 year old Kyoto townhouse
If you want to enjoy a uniquely Kyoto, elegant place where the time flows slowly, I at once recommend this place. Kyo-Yuba Seike Nishijin is a yuba (tofu skin) restaurant in Nishijin.
Seike is a restaurant chain in Kyoto with three restaurants, and one of them is here in Nishijin in a renovated townhouse built over 140 years ago. The black plaster walls, spacious garden, the spacious entrance, all this hints at a formal restaurant, but once inside, you feel a somewhat nostalgic feeling get over which helps you relax. This must be because of the beautiful hostess of the restaurant comfortably but surely serves you in an incredibly polite manner.
Seike’s yuba is made in Miyama where their main restaurant is, and where there is rich nature and clear water. In Seike’s refined yuba you can taste the soybeans’ sweetness, and in their course Yubazukushi you can taste many kinds of dishes made from yuba like yuba steak and yuba sashimi.
Having the extremely luxurious course, in a Japanese room where the time flows slowly, is a superior and special experience. How about adding a special page to your travel diary about the Kyoto specialty, a yuba full course dinner in a machiya townhouse?
