Story & Recommendation
Kyoto-style kaiseki cuisine that combines tradition and innovation in an elegant atmosphere
The area around Shimogamo Shrine is enveloped by a tranquil, solemn atmosphere. And in that same area right by Shimogamo Shrine, you’ll find a restaurant called Shimogamo Saryo. Established in 1856, Shimogamo Saryo shares a long history that extends all the way back to Japan’s Edo period (1603 to 1868). As soon as you step inside you’ll be hit with the pleasant aroma of incense, which is further complimented by a delightful interior design style and a Japanese garden outside that has been expertly tended for over 100 years. All of these components at the restaurant go a long way to provide a keen sense of hospitality to its guests. Shimogamo Saryo makes use of ingredients that are exclusive to Kyoto and prepares them with cooking techniques that pay respect to older culinary traditions. Shimogamo Saryo also brings in novel culinary ideas, which makes their menu truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Although their food is based on the delicate and simple flavors of Kyo Ryori (Kyoto Cuisine), their menu is also full of new ideas, including Japanese wagyu beef fillets fried up into karaage, and a grilled sweetfish recipe that is unique to Shimogamo Saryo. Many hotel concierges recommend Shimogamo Saryo since it’s so well-known, and the restaurant’s staff is well-accustomed to serving guests from overseas. Therefore, it’s relatively easy to stop in and enjoy the food here having difficulties.
