Honke Tankuma HontenKaiseki /Kyoto Washoku
Honke Tankuma Honten was established by its founder in 1928 as a Kappo restaurant and has since been adored by gourmets as one of the trailblazers of the Itamae Kappo-style. It is famed for its straight-forward culinary style of bringing out the best from its ingredients with as little alteration to them as possible. A certain excitement can be felt in the air with the chef’s skills and expertise being tested daily. Its third-generation and current owner provides the same style of cuisine as his predecessors, while also meeting the various needs of the present age.
Honke Tankuma Honten’s specialty is the suppon (soft-shell turtle) soup. The distinct smell of turtle meat is non-existent and only its rich flavors are left to be enjoyed in this truly exquisite dish.
The riverside Yuka seating course start from 16,500 yen (table charge excl.) and include hamo (conger eel) and ayu sweetfish dishes, as well as the specialty suppon soup.
In addition, the young owner has acquired the qualifications of A.S.I Sommelier Diploma (certified by the International Sommelier Association), Sommelier Excellence (certified by the Japan Sommelier Association), Sake Diploma (certified by the Japan Sommelier Association), and WSET Level.3, which is rare in Kyoto. You can enjoy authentic wine and sake recommended by the sommelier while enjoying Kyoto cuisine. (About 150 brands of wine and about 30 brands of sake are available)
