Kyotanabe City
Kyotanabe City

With easy access from the urban areas of Kyoto, Osaka, and Nara, the area is popular as a bedroom community. Look out for unique cafes and restaurants.
Kyotanabe City is easily accessible from the urban areas of Kyoto, Osaka, and Nara, and is a popular commuter town. Not only is it a comfortable place to live, but it is also a charming spot with Shuon-an Ikkyu-ji Temple, where Zen master Ikkyu, nicknamed "Ikkyu-san," spent his later years, and a tea plantation of gyokuro, which is known as the finest Japanese tea. There are many, and it is fun to take a walk. In recent years, it has become a hot topic that many unique restaurants have opened one after another in Funai, such as specialty restaurants where you can enjoy a wide variety of authentic Asian cuisine. I would like to visit while looking forward to the special dish that can only be tasted here.

Enjoy exotic flavors

You will feel like you are enjoying an exotic journey in a space surrounded by sundries and photographs from the Arab world. The restaurant offers Arabic cuisine that uses a variety of herbs and vegetables, and Jordanian chef Ahmad prepares a menu that has been highly praised in his home country. The menu includes Hujjarah, a stew covered with bread dough, kebabs, and other barbecue dishes, as well as Turkish coffee. All of the dishes are carefully prepared, not spicy and easy to eat, and it is fun to listen to the explanations from his wife Natsuko. There are also many vegetarian, vegan, and flourless menu items.

Organic cafe-restaurant where you can feel happiness.

I want more people to eat organic food. The owner, who speaks from the bottom of his heart, experienced how important food is when he himself became ill. The lunch, dessert, and drinks using 100% organically grown vegetables and cereal rice, as well as organic spices, are gentle enough to satisfy not only the body but also the soul. A variety of new anti-aging themed menus are also available.

Lamb Meatballs with Sesame Sauce

A friend of the common man in pursuit of realistic and delicious food.

An international restaurant by a young couple near Doshisha University. They have created an original menu based on their own trial and error to offer only dishes that they consider to be real = truly delicious, and offer them at a reasonable price. For example, the yangnyom chicken, with its crunchy batter and Korean gochujang (red pepper paste), has the ultimate texture and taste that cannot be found anywhere else. Khao Mangai, for example, uses Daisen herb chicken from Tottori to make it moist and juicy, and is served with jasmine rice and an ethnic dipping sauce similar to that used in Thailand. The owner, who is full of ideas, says, "I want to offer you a new dining experience that is unique to this restaurant!
