Seasonal sake and Japanese dishes near the Kyoto Imperial Palace Grounds
The owner of Saraku, Mr. Shunsuke Sato, started his career as a chef when he was 26, after leaving his work in a different area of business. He trained himself in a number of Japanese restaurants, such as Tankuma. After eleven years of training, he became independent and opened his restaurant, Kappo Saraku, in March 2011. Sato’s main aim is to present the best combination of Japanese sake and delicious dishes. About 20 kinds of carefully selected Japanese sake are regularly available, some of which are dependent on the season. A female designer, Ms. Kaori Fujii, who has also designed popular French and Italian restaurants in Kyoto, designed the interior. The course menu is reasonably priced and includes several dishes so that diners can try different tastes and a variety of seasonal ingredients in one course. Saraku is recommended both for a casual dinner with your friends as well as for entertaining important clients.
