Enjoy elegant and delicious food at a hideaway [Hanok Kyohime] in Kiyamachi Gojo

December 12, 2022 open

While neon-lit Korean restaurants are all the rage, a new chic Korean restaurant has opened in Kiyamachi Gojo that is a favorite of adults. Upon opening the massive wooden door, you will find spacious table and counter seating with a traditional atmosphere.

The owner of the hanok

Owner Kyunghee Kim
Born in Seoul Special City, Korea. In 2022, moved to Kyoto with her mother, who ran a diner in Yokohama for many years.

We are welcomed by the owner, Ms. Kyohime Kim, who is originally from South Korea. Born and raised in Seoul, Korea, Kyohime came to Japan after graduating from high school and entering college. I visited Kyoto many times to meet friends who were from Kyoto, and I thought I really liked the calm atmosphere of Kyoto. She and her mother, who ran a diner in Yokohama for about 20 years, work together to run the restaurant.

Kimpas in a Korean restaurant

Kyohime kinpa for 1000 yen. The ingredients inside this kinpa change daily. Plenty of vegetables are used in Kyo Hime's style.

The dishes born from her mother's experience, Kyohee's recipes, and the bond between mother and daughter have all gained a reputation for their elegant flavors based on light seasoning. Korean food has a strong image of gochujang (red pepper paste), but I try to avoid using it as much as possible. We also make our own sauce from scratch for our pancakes and takkang mari.

We started this restaurant because we wanted to create a hideaway where adults could enjoy a leisurely meal, so we want people to enjoy eating and chatting without worrying about the time," he says.
