【Tempura】 Komefuku 【near Nishiki】

Hi!  Welcome to Machi's Taxi Restaurant Guide.

If you search websites by such keywords as "Kyoto", "tempura", and "restaurant", you'll undoubtedly find a number of very good Japanese restaurants. However, the ones you'll find will likely be classy and expensive places.

Here, I'll introduce you to "Komefuku" a casual restaurant which serves good tempura meals at reasonable prices.
You can also save time here, in comparison with other classy restaurants.

"Komefuku Tendon" (price-880JPY)

This is the best recommended dish for lunch here. Many large pieces of tempura are placed on top of rice.
You can choose the amount of rice from small, regular, or large. They are all the same price. I chose the regular size.
The ingredients for the tempura are pumpkin, eggplant, mushroom, chicken, egg, some more vegetables, and 2 large prawns.

The prawns are long, but thin. Considering the price, it can't be helped.

Since a special sauce has been used on it, it's already flavored.
They also serve some more sauce separately, in case you prefer a stronger taste.

I ate it all, and it was a big lunch for me.

They use only rice bran oil for cooking the tempura which is considered to be healthy oil.
The mild flavor of the oil, I think, is suitable for tempura.
Since I ate quite a lot of tempura in this "Komefuku Tendon" though, I have to admit that I felt it was a little too oily when I finished the lunch.
Still, I am sure that you can enjoy good tempura lunch at this restaurant.

This restaurant is quite busy, but most customers seem to be Japanese.
Their lunch menu has photos of dishes, which makes it easy for foreign tourists to order.

"Vegetable tempura donburi" ( price-980JPY ).

To get there, go north along Higashinotoin street from Shijo street. After passing Daimaru department store you'll notice a narrow path  on your right side.
Turn right onto the path, and you'll soon see the restaurant on your left.

If you show this picture to your taxi driver in Kyoto, he’ll have no trouble taking you to this restaurant.


Taxi fare will be:

1120JPY  from the Kyoto Station.
1120JPY from The the Kiyomizudera temple.

The above prices are just my approximate guess.
