Muromachi Wakuden, Kyoto
November 18, 2014
Muromachi Wakuden is one of four Kyoto restaurants in the Wakuden group, founded in 1870 in Tango, north of Kyoto. Hideko, Linda and I went for lunch on October 23, 2014.
Figs in fu (wheat gluten) with walnut crumbs.
This was unusual; seasonal and nice.
Here you can see the chef preparing the tai, or red sea bream.
Linda’s rice was topped with hamo, or conger pike, and egg. Here you can see the hamo being grilled for use
The dessert was chestnut bound with kuzu starch.
This was an enjoyable meal and a nice break from a day touring temples, shrines and gardens. It offered a good sample of Kyoto cuisine, although the figs and fu was unusual.
