For Meat Lovers - Best Gyutan Steak Restaurants in Kyoto

Gyutan (牛タン) is one of the Japanese food made from grilled beef tongue originated in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture. Gyutan has meaty flavor and unique texture, and is healthier than other meat. Here is a list of best gyutan steaks in Kyoto!

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!

The interior is decorated in a Japanese style and the presentations of the dishes are so good. You can have thick and juicy gyutan steak for 1280 yen! They have a selection of sake which goes will with gyutan.

Morishoten (森商店)

If you are very hungry, you can get a big meal at Morishouten. It is located on the second floor of a shopping mall near Katsuragawa station.

They serve many kinds of gyutan teishoku, Japanese set meal, that includes rice, side vegetables, and soup. They are around 1000-2000 yen and very satisfying amount.

Shinjou (しんじょう)

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.

Must try in Kyoto!

I love traveling and eating. My favorites are everything matcha and cheesecakes.
