    Hyotei

    Absolutely classical Kyoto cuisine based on the philosophy of tea ceremony

    Hyotei is known throughout Japan as the representative top-class Kyoto cuisine restaurant.  It started as a teashop serving tea for people who visited Nanzen-ji Temple over 400 years ago.  Their cuisine is called Cha Kaiseki, or kaiseki haute, which is specifically served at a tea ceremony party.  However, Hyotei skillfully combines the tradition of Cha Kaiseki and new creations in their restaurant.  The best ingredients of the season served in beautiful plates and bowls – this is the fundamental base of Japanese cuisine.  An alley leading you from the entrance to the dining room is also breathtaking for its simplicity.  The egg dish called Hyotei Tamago is such a minimal dish but it represents Hyotei’s history of 400 years that respects simplicity and elegance above all else.
