    Risei

    Korean café with an academic air

    The interior of this cafe is full of antique furniture and items from the Yi Dynasty of Korea (1392-1910).  Upon entering, you will be immediately surrounded by the air of Korea along with its history and culture.  Here, diners can try classical Korean style medicinal teas.  Another recommendation is the bibimbap (Korean rice dish; 1,000 yen) with a recipe that has been adapted to match the Japanese palate.  A variety of toppings, including more than 10 different kinds of vegetables from Miyama (a village north of Kyoto), seaweed, pieces of fried tofu and other Kyoto specialties are beautifully arranged on the rice in a bowl.  Don’t forget to add the homemade Korean spicy sauce made from organically grown peppers and to stir it in well before eating.
