Kyoto - what food am I missing?

  • 1

We are going to be in Kyoto for 3 nights, then heading over to Tokyo afterwards for another 3 nights. I have created a tentative Kyoto food itinerary, but I am missing a dinner, ideally around the Gion district. We are coming from the Fushimi district for sake tasting before that. My itinerary so far is as follows. It would be great to get your recommendations. Somewhere in the $15-25 per person range is ideal. We would be eating more ramen, tonkatsu, and tempura in Tokyo so those are out. Maybe o-banzai homestyle Kyoto cuisine or something unique to the area? We are already doing a tofu lunch so not sure if a vegetarian dinner is too similar. Omen seems interesting but it seems it's closer to Ginkakuji.
