Kyoto Restaurants: 179 reviews and 250 photos


Tradtional kyoto sweets are a must try. It's made of red bean paste and artfully pressed into shapes to represent the seasons of the year. You can even see the chef making it at the counter if you want to. And no, you don't gulp it in one mouthful. you're supposed to use the toothpick-like stick to cut it and eat it daintly.

Price Comparison: about average
Price: less than US$10
