Story & Recommendation
Enjoy authentic Chinese cuisine at Zezekan Pocchiri, a restaurant located in a machiya townhouse that used to be a kimono store
This restaurant looks classically European from the outside, but inside it is a traditional machiya townhouse. This is rare even in Kyoto, and at this restaurant, Zezekan Pocchiri, you can enjoy Chinese imperial cuisine. The restaurant is located on a 661 square meter plot of land, and you can enjoy your authentic Chinese cuisine while you enjoy a view of the well taken care of garden of the restaurant. The restaurant is not only popular among the locals, but also among tourists. The tastes of the dishes that combine traditional Chinese recipes with local ingredients are very complex, and even among these dishes, their shark fin and turtle dishes are something that even the most seasoned food critics in Kyoto can’t get enough of. They sell pork dumplings called Shimidare Butaman during Gion Matsuri, and these pork dumplings are so delicious that there is always a line of people waiting to buy them. In the back of the garden, in a renovated old warehouse, you can find a bar called Pocchiri, where you can enjoy alcoholic drinks. They also offer lunch, so I wish you will visit this restaurant both for lunch and for dinner.
