Found in Kawaramachi Gojo, Kyoto! A new restaurant in the Western food world that has appeared at the end of an alleyway [Nagago Western Restaurant]

July 27, 2023 open

One street north of Kawaramachi Gojo, you will see the Kawaramachi Matsubara intersection. About 100 meters to the west of this intersection is Momiji no Koji, a corner of the Kawaramachi Gojo district where many stores in traditional Kyoto machiya houses are located. At the far end of the alley is Nagago, a Western-style restaurant that opened this July.
I thought it would be an interesting combination of a machiya and a Western-style restaurant," says owner Matsumoto, explaining why he opened the restaurant here.

Matsumoto is an unquestionably skilled Western-style chef, having served as manager at Bistro Sept, which regrettably closed about three years ago.
The hamburger steak, based on a recipe from that time, is the first item on the lunch menu, and again greets customers as a specialty.
The hamburger steak is made from a 50-50 blend of Japanese beef and happy pig from Fukudome Kohanchi in Kagoshima, which is known for its "superb fatty meat. The meat itself is packed with deliciousness.
