    Casual French restaurant near Kiyomizu-dera Temple

    Located between Kiyomizu-zaka and Gojo-zaka Streets, both of which lead to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, meli-melo is a French restaurant that has been appreciated by both locals and tourists for 15 years.  “Most of our customers order from our course menu, so I try to prepare the entire course with my own hands, even the ham and sausages.  I think that is my responsibility,” says the owner and chef, Mr. Shinji Makino.  One of his special dishes is “Cheek meat of Japanese beef simmered in red wine sauce.”  The meat is marinated overnight in red wine and then thoroughly cooked in fond de veau (French sauce) for 8-10 hours.  The incredibly tender meat can be easily cut even by chopsticks and melts in the mouth.  The staff’s efficient and hospitable service is also another secret of this restaurant’s popularity.
