Decided to treat myself a Kyo-ryori (Kyoto cuisine) dinner after a whole day of walking in the rain without any proper meal, while it’s also my last day in Kyoto. Picked a restaurant called Manshige (萬重), located in Porta, the underground shopping mall in front of (or right underneath of) Kyoto Station.
The dinner was certainly a lot more casual and less pricey (1700Y for the set I ordered) than the proper kaiseki style but still a pretty good experience for someone who wanted to try Kyo-ryori like me.
The food was beautifully presented and I love how they looked so fine and colourful. Though, as much as I wanted to enjoy the dinner I was facing an issue: I knew nothing about Kyo-ryori! So half of the time I didn’t know what exactly was I eating, or which should be eaten first. Most of the stuff were quite sweet that they seemed like desserts.. are they supposed to eat with rice? :S
Anyways, good thing that I still know some good stuff like this matsutake tea or soup below – it’s so good! Oohlala~! An autumn special by the way. :D
