Feel free to follow favy!

Tanmiya (たん味屋)

Located 10 mins walk from Kyoto station, this gyutan restaurant has Japanese traditional decoration and nice atmosphere.

They have a great variety of gyutan menu, and I recommend you to try gyutan aburi-sashi (1480 yen). They use the softest part of beef tongue and grill very lightly like a rare steak. They will melt in your mouth.

Gyutan Keisuke (牛タン圭助)

Also located near Kyoto Station, this restaurant serves great gyutan and sake!

Shinjou, located 3 mins walk from Gionshijo station, creates nostalgic atmosphere where you can be relaxed and enjoy gyutan.

The most popular menu is tanshabu (1800 yen) which stands for gyutan-shabushabu. Shabu shabu is a hotpot-like Japanese dish. You put thinly sliced meat (usually pork) into the hotpot just for a moment because the meat will be cooked very quickly. Here, you can do it with beef tongue. They are very tender and meaty.


73 Hakatacho, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto, Kyoto
