Takeka

Soft and chewy texture rice cooked in a lotus leaf

Takeka is a Cantonese cuisine restaurant located on Shinbashi Street in Gion, where maiko and geiko still live and work.  Their dishes use less garlic and spices than usual so as maiko and geiko can enjoy their dishes before working: a typical example of Kyoto-style sensitivity.  Their branch restaurant is in Furumonzen and serves a delicious dim sum lunch and takeaway items.  The photo is of rice cooked in a lotus leaf.  Dried scallops and other savory ingredients are mixed in sticky rice and steamed in a lotus leaf.  If you call in advance, they will prepare steaming hot ones that will be perfect for you to enjoy upon arrival.
