Kyoto - Osaka - Kobe, Restaurant Suggestion?
I'm going to Kyoto - Osaka - Kobe in Sep and I'm trying to plan my dinner/lunch plan.
My budget is around 15000 yen for dinner
3 nights in Kyoto
Kyoto Dinner 1 - K-Whats Beef
Any other alternative for beef under 10000yen, Moritaya ?
Kyoto Dinner 2 - High End Kaiseki or MIchelin restaurants for around 15000 yen?
Hyotei & Arashiyama Kitcho, out of budget
Kikunoi Honten 3*? (Ryotei
)Chihana 3*? (Kappo)
Kikunoi Roan 2*? (Counter/Kappo)
Uosaburo 2*? (A bit far south from Kyoto Station)
Ryozanpaku 2*? (Not many information)
Chihiro 2*? (Not many information)
Gion Matsumaro 2*? (Not many information)
Hanamura 2*? (Not many information)
Kyoto Dinner 3 - Spoon
Set menu for around 3500 yen, good deal.
Osaka Dinner - Hajime Artiste (Able to get reservation at 8pm)
I heard dinner at Hajime will take about 3 hours, is this right?
Kobe Dinner - Kobe Setsugatsuka
Got to have teppanyaki & wagyu when you visit Japan right, hehe...
I'm planning to leave my lunch plan open, but if you have any suggestion please let me know.
Whenever Kyoto lunch is mentioned, I always say Yamamoto-Menzo for an excellent and cheap udon noodle lunch!
Some one here recommended Yubanzai Komame-ya. I went for the lunch, and it was amazing. And that's from a regular meat eater.
But you should consider exploring the yuba/tofu option, it's one of Kyoto's specialty after all. Although if you go to any kaiseki meal, tofu/yuba will be in a dish or two.
Plus, Yamamoto-Menzo is pretty good udon.
