This eatery does not have an English signboard, serves only 1 item in its menu.
The Issen Yoshoku, a kind of savoury pancake.
You can see the chef preparing it on the spot so it's served piping hot.
For 730 yen, highly recommended as a...More
Interesting spot, only serve one item, but it's quite good and unlike other foods we have had so far in Japan. The restaurant itself is a spectacle to behold, hard to focus on food with all the incredible and fun decor!
We stopped here on one of our guided tours and tried this pancake with various fillings. I omitted the ginger as was told quite spicy and different from normal ginger. It was so good and tasty. Loved it!! The interior is quite unique. You have...More
This restaurant makes only this one savoury Japanese pancake. It was delicious but also indistinct. I felt they basically just put heaps of stuff that one can eat together and that’s it. Nonetheless, it was still a good meal. The place has a nice upbeat...More
We wanted to try okonomiyaki and by default ended up here because the place I really wanted to try was only open for lunch. This was the worst meal eaten in Japan. They only serve it one way without any choice of ingredients and I...More
A funny joint that has one item on the menu. They have a vego option, and you can ask for items to be left out.

A popular street food in Kyoto, okonomi-yaki is a pancake-like pizza-style snack food made up of tempura batter with beef, ginger, konjakyu jelly and various seasonings topped with a runny sunny-side up egg. At Issen Yoshoku, they only serve one version with no variation, so...More
If you fancy a cheap local dish in quirky surroundings then this is the place. Stumbled across this restaurant and watched as they cooked the okonomyaki on the hot plates. Fascinated, we piled in to give them a go!
The menu makes choosing very simple!...More
We were suggested to stop by from a local who stated its the best Kyoto style okonomiyaki. We got the traditional style and loved it. Many different flavors and different than others we have had. Highly recommend it.
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
