Honke Tankuma Honten

Kaiseki /Kyoto Washoku

An long-standing establishment with history and prestige. The soft-shell turtle soup; an exquisite specialty.

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 16,200 yen (table charge excl.) and include hamo (conger eel) and ayu sweetfish dishes, as well as the specialty suppon soup.
