We went to a couple of restaurants that served this type of food and this one was the best. Start off by grinding your sesame seeds and then mixing your sauce. The pork is very good. Definitely, recommend especially if you're in the area.

If you are looking for this kind of Japanese food, you are going to the right place. If you order the main plate you have rice and miso soup as side dishes included. Food tasty and well executed. Nice place and kind staff. Middle price

The place can be confusing if you are not familiar with the layout of the 2 malls. Food was very good, enjoyed every bite of the meat. Staff were helpful.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
