"Furou-en, a Japanese..." Kyoto Restaurant Tip by flowergrl

Kyoto Restaurants: 178 reviews and 249 photos

Furou-en, a Japanese Home-cooking style restaurant.
Traditional Japanese-style house, 1/2 of which has been turned into a restaurant.
The presentation of the food is LOVELY! Each of the plates which the food is served on is different ... so even if you order the same meal as another person, the tray will look different. Some of these plates are quite old. Some may even be antiques.

Favorite Dish: This is Japanese home-style cooking at it's best. I always order a 'teishoku', since it is a main dish served with rice, miso soup, potato salad, pickles, and another couple of small seasonal dishes, Besides having a set teishoku menu (fried shrimp, steak, hamburger, etc), some menu items change each month. These are the ones I love. Usually there is one each of pork, fish, beef and chicken, cooked in special sauces (which are not necessarily Japanese).

Directions: Get off the bus at the 'Ginkakuji' bus stop. Walk east towards Ginkakuji ('the Silver Pavillion', or 'the Silver Temple'). Turn right at the police box. Walk down the street until you see a wooden men
othercontact: There is often a line of people
