Kyoto-style Chinese dishes born in elegant Gion
Hachiraku is a cozy restaurant quietly situated on a back lane near the famous Kodai-ji Temple and Ishibe-koji Street. The owner and chef once worked for a Beijing cuisine restaurant, Seikin-tei, in Gion. Unlike ordinary Chinese cuisine, he doesn’t use garlic for his dishes as well as minimizing the amount of added spices. Thus, his dishes have a very mild and gentle taste that is both good for digestion and prevents any odor from remaining on customer’s clothes. People started to call such a thoughtful consideration “A Chinese cuisine for maiko (apprentice geiko)”. They have a number of popular regular menu items such as their thick broth poured over fluffy fried egg with crabmeat, and fried rice with bamboo shoots. The counter only seating encourages many people to come alone and enjoy their meal as they like.
