While browsing for a Japanese restaurant, I noticed Kyo Ya. There were so many outstanding reviews and photos from other people, we were most intrigued.
My husband and I travelled to Kyoto last Fall and experienced an authentic kaiseki at our ryokan. While we did not have the kaiseki at Kyo Ya (make a reservation at least 2 days in advance), the items we ordered were some of the same delicacies we had in Kyoto. We were sold once we saw Kyo Ya had an Asari Miso Soup (miso soup with clams). Each item was presented ever so delicately and beautifully. Dessert was my favorite, a combination of black soy beans, homemade vanilla ice cream, and different types of mochis and jelly. And to top it of a brown sugar syrup to pour over the dish.
This type of cuisine is not to be rushed. Our dinner took about 2-2 1/2 hours, NOT because of slow service but because we wanted to enjoy it. And we did!
Our server Yumi made the experience even better!
