Toraya has the most ass-kicking, garlicky motsunabe in Kyoto
The winters in Kyoto are as cold as the summers are hot. And is there anything better than hot pot for these cold winter months? Actually, there is. And that something would have to be motsunabe, meaning garlicky beef offal hot pot. You have beef offal, cabbage, onion, garlic and garlic chive, bean sprouts, and burdock, among other ingredients. Toraya is a restaurant in Kyoto located in the atmospheric and old restaurant and bar alley of Ponto-cho, and although it has only been in business since 2003, it has already become one of the most famous motsunabe restaurants in Kyoto.
